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...

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

I am right that in power chromatic the bends are what you call a half step on a standard richter diatonic? Response: Yes. For every octave, with power chromatic you get 8 notes plus 4 with bends compared to 8 plus 2 on solo tunning - is that right? If yes, with power chromatic you only lose 1 of th...

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

My Lucky 13s PowerChromatics in the keys of G and D just hit the mailbox this morning. Just a couple of weeks from ordering. Not bad timing for a package from China to Beaumont, Texas. These harps are great. I have yet to be disappointed with anything from Easttop. The fit and finish on the new mode...

Multi Key Tracks

I use the Brendan's Powerbender book CD quite often for the backing tracks. One of the tracks (I believe in the 79-80 range) has all the keys in the book and cycles through them. It is great practice. Does anyone know of a similar track where individual key has a few more measures before it changes ...

Re: New PowerBender and PowerDraw Harps

Great to hear these are now available.
I went directly to all PB on diatonic and have not looked back.

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

Great!
Just ordered a G and D PC Lucky 13!
Will your custom comb fit these alternate tunings, or are you making combs specifically for them?

The Lucky 13 samples in Solo and PowerChromatic arrived from Easttop. Sounding good - will see how they work half-valved.
Any word on these coming anytime soon? Is Easttop looking into Powerbender/draw on their 10 holers also?

Re: The SlipSlider - a Revolutionary Blues Harp. It's Weird, but it Works!

I am glad you asked that question Lizzy. I am slowly converting all my diatonic to PB tuned Session Steels and the 1847s myself.
