Low-end Rhythm & Linking Notes on the Lucky 13

I've had quite a few requests to post some video lessons on ideas for linking the normal low octave and extra low octave of the Lucky 13 together. Here are some simple ways to do it:

This is one I like: http://www.inta-audio.com/microphones-c58/lavalier-headset-microphones-c478/qtx-tie-clip-uni-directional-microphone-p4190/s4197?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=qtx-tie-clip-uni-d...

BloThru OctaChroms - Octave Chromatic Harmonicas

The rich octave sound, two reeds playing together an octave apart, is one of the most appealing free-reed tonalities.

Re: What to seal combs with.

As an alternative idea, I'll be releasing some 3d printed PowerCombs for the Hohner 12 and 14 hole diatonics soon. Prototypes are made and tested, just got to do the webpage, video etc
