Currently available paddy richter harmonica

Hi,

I've been interested in trying a paddy richter harp and the slide diatonic seems interesting but currently not available. What are the current options for paddy richter? Are there any plans to bring back the slide diatonic paddy richter?

Re: How would you retune an Asia Bend?

Oh, I see. I completely missed the x-reed part so was really confused by all the # and thought there was some bebop scale I hadn't heard of. :)

Re: How would you retune an Asia Bend?

I appreciate your response. With regards to bebop, maybe I'm using the wrong term, but I just meant tuning the lower numbered duplicate C to Bb.

Be Good Tuning

Here's a fun tuning I had Seydel make on their Big Six. Since it only has 4 reeds per octave, you can't go 10 holes before you run out of standard reeds. The same four notes repeated as shown below. I called it Be Good tuning, but if you chose a different key you might have change the name. :D In se...

How would you retune an Asia Bend?

If you were going to change the tuning of an Asia Bend what would you choose? I'm not a big fan of the duplicate C in solo tuning and though I rarely play chromatic, the two I have are Diminished tuning and Bebop tuning. What are the pros and cons of beboping (tune the duplicate C to Bb) an Asia bend?
