Re: New PowerBender and PowerDraw Harps

I'm looking to get a Lucky 13 as I prefer Low register for many songs. Thinking that either PowerBender or PowerDraw tuning would be useful - which would be best for Blues/Rock? I think much of this would depend on your style: If you want to keep the 2/5 holes as a draw spilt and the pattern 4-7 ho...

Re: THE ENTERTAINER - Played on Lucky 13 in PowerChromatic Tuning

This instructional video is a very good start for learning how to play it. I recommend it for anyone that is trying to learn this tuning. Since I have bought it, my weekends have been a bit hijacked, due to the new cycle, but I am turning back to it this weekend. He breaks it down piece by piece in ...

Re: THE ENTERTAINER - Played on Lucky 13 in PowerChromatic Tuning

Just after I tuned my G to C!
I just ordered another G to replace it, and I will be downloading the packet later to start working on the song. Looks like a great lesson.

Re: powerbender A-Dur

It is not a difficult switch. I would definitely recommend pulling the trigger on it. The natural breath pattern to the upper octave will feel familiar, so you may find yourself playing holes 6 - 10 quite a bit more than you usually do, especially if you are playing multiple positions. The only thin...

Re: NEW HARPS: Lucky 13 in Solo and PowerChromatic Tunings

However, i have not looked at Lucky 13 yet to compare it with Soloist pro regarding blow/draw pattern. OOTB the LKY13PC is going to start with the one hole blow in the stamped key. On the Lucky 13, if you take the G major (PC) and lower the E, F#, G, and A to D, E, F, and G, you will have a C tuned...

@Lizzy.
Did you get you PC in the key of C?

I tuned my G to C weekend before last, as I wanted to play to take licks I casually play on a all C powerbender octaves and dupe them to the PC pattern. It has proven to be a great way to learn the way around the PC.

Re: Lucky 13 powerchromatic vs Seydel Soloist pro 12

What do i lose in the powerchromatic tuning if i use Seydel soloist pro 12 hole powerchromatic compaired to Lucky 13 powerchromatic ? I think really just one hole, since you can select the layout on Seydel generator. If your question is more related to application of playing, then it will depend on...

Re: NEW HARPS: Lucky 13 in Solo and PowerChromatic Tunings

@DanPa Which one did you pull the trigger on? G or D. I am about to order another to tune it to C. I hope these continue to catch on. An Ab (if they ever make other keys) is on my Christmas list for sure. On a "getting to know the harp note:" If you went with the G harp, check out this track: https:...

Re: NEW HARPS: Lucky 13 in Solo and PowerChromatic Tunings

"if you keep the appropriate sized dab of Blu-tack on the reed head or reedplate next to the reed."

@Brendan,
What did you mean by putting it on the reedplate next to the reed? I have just put it on the reed in the past? Am I missing an application. I didn't catch it from the posting.

Re: NEW HARPS: Lucky 13 in Solo and PowerChromatic Tunings

@DanPa FYI on your question re the keys. I find it a bit easier to play in the key C on the G tuned LKY13PC. (of course this may depend on what you are playing) Starting in C, which is 3 hole blow, you have the C Lydian in the natural breath pattern of the harp. Your only challenge (in the event you...
