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

Re: The OctaHarp is Released

Thanks Ed - looking forward tpo hearing what you do with these things. Yes, you can put Special 20 reedplates on the Hohner PowerCombs, Apologies for the delay, the ordering options for the MiniChrom in particular are very complex! However we have the page 90% done and it should be up tomorrow Sunday.
