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.

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

So if I order the kit, all I would need it compatible reedplates in my desired tuning and covers?

Re: Power Chromatic

Fantastic.
I look forward to the small than a chromatic form factor, so I can have a pocket PC.

Re: Power Chromatic

I have been tempted to try PC but is unsure what benefits i can use with it compaired to what i already are using. I have used halfvalved powerbender since it came out. My goal with it was to be able to play all chromatic notes. That is achieved and i can play all 12 major scales but maybe i am are...

https://youtu.be/d1LzQOZqtp4 Here is a video of me playing "Kitchenaire" from the awesome album, "Lament for the 21st Century". Here I play it on a Key of C, Hohner CX-12 that I put in Bb P.C. tuning. Im playing with the button in (mostly) so the home key of the tune is B major! @Paris (Thumbs up) ...

Re: Power Chromatic

@Slava -
Sorry if I was not clear on it.

I wrote up some stuff on it last night, posted it, but on reflection this morning. I think i may have made errors, so I pulled it off. I will throw a comment back out soon.

Re: Discontinued

For the Chromabender type harp: .... Do you have advice as far as valving the reeds on the active plate? I am looking at the same thing myself. I asked up a bit further how to do it for PC tuning, which is close to what you have done. Given his comment that "You don't want to put any valves in that...

Re: Discontinued

You don't want to put any valves in that will interfere with the airflow between active red and x-reed. Assuming you put your x-reeds on the bottom reedplate (as with the ChromaBender), and it's in Solo tuning, you should not put on any inside valves holes 1-3 or an outside valve on hole 4 (or the ...

Re: Discontinued

I just finished making my own chromabender. ..... The one I finished is in C, made from 270 reedplates. C6 tuning. @CrawfordE I am working on the same thing. If you don't mind me asking, how did you set up the valves on the X-reed plate? Or did you set up any on them at all. That seems to be a piec...
