Re: Asiabend or solo-tuned unibender?

It can have the same bends, but is blow/draw instead of all-draw. The clip I play on the UniBender in the video ("Wayfaring Stranger") is in Solo tuning, with the same bends as the AsiaBend.

Re: PowerChromatic: The 12 Major Scales with Bends ; Setup Advice

Nice one! I just made up those solos on the spur of the moment, never thought anyone would transcribe and learn them - it's an honour that you've gone to all that effort, Nick! Now you just need your own Andrew White :)

The MiniChrom / SwitchHarp is Released

This TwinDiatonic harmonica can be configured in so many ways! Its patent-pending airtight sliding mouthpiece allows you to switch instantly between two 10-hole diatonics attached behind; the sound you get all depends on what setup, key and tuning you choose for the two harps.

Re: Asia bend, Auto Valve comb and the Lucky 13!!

Hi Nick, My AsiaBend has covers from the King Dream (riveted reeds) put on the next level up Easttop chrom, the Dreamer or 12-48-SR (welded reeds). Easttop advised me the reeds and reed/slot tolerances were better on the welded reed models.

Re: Power Chromatic

Here's a video showing how to play all 12 keys on PowerChromatic using just about all bends. This is played on the Seydel version, which has been embossed for better airtightness:

Re: Power Chromatic

Re: HARMONICA and BUTTON-BOX: New Album with Tim Edey

Not a bad idea, choose my personal favourite tracks and put them all together. I'll think about it!

Re: Discontinued

Hi Simon, the UniBender will be the last of the TwinDiatonics to be released, I still need to test it a bit more, But within two weeks it should be ready to release. It could be configured in Solo tuning from Seydel. To be honest I don't have up-to-date knowledge of the NZ harmonica scene. There is ...
