Re: Lucky 13 in PowerBender, PowerDraw & Paddy Richter

@rishio I primarily TB on only Power Bender and Power Chromes now. You aren't missing out on anything that you can't live without. When I first picked up the PB, coming from Richter, I started focusing on TBing both sides and forward. It really helped me overcome the "different-soundedness" of PB to...

Re: What Would You Like to See?

So just saying that I vote for more Powerbender stuff. I will ditto this one. @ poster: I moved over to powerbender myself this year. If you have not already, order that PowerBender book. The book is great, and the audio files will be invaluable. After you walk through the written lesson in the boo...

Re: Power Chromatic

I retuned same model easttop in this tuning. It worked great. I'm going to modify it to have the start note on A but "HOME" at G. Seydel's new offering is also set up that way it appears. It's great that Seydel is making PCs now, and we will see more people learning and playing and if we all cross o...

Re: Power Chromatic

I am glad I came across this thread, to begin with. I took a crack at tuning to the PC myself this weekend. I am not completely finished, but to did get the first two octaves finished (slide out). This is a great tuning. The pulls/slaps/etc sound great. I keep a ukulele tuned (LowG)CEA also, so this...

Re: Lucky 13 in PowerBender, PowerDraw & Paddy Richter

Hi Brendan: For double Paddy conversions my two bits would be that it's maybe easier and less accident prone to have replacement reeds for the Paddy notes already 2 semi tones up for the 3 and 6 blows, and install them. Particularly with the lower reed , it's a lot of filing to get to the paddy not...

Re: Power Chromatic

I have a 12 holer East top Dreamer coming in soon that I plan to make PC. All this talk got me interested. Update: the East top Dreamer just came in. I see a few resources on this tuning¬° however, does anyone have anything definitive on how to do the Half valve portion of the setup. FYI the dreamer ...

Re: How would you retune an Asia Bend?

I would like to try bebop.
@brendan. I have never tuned an xreed. Do you have any suggestion for a video resource?
Also, when you say 30 cents sharp, is the asiabend tuned like that normally?

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

@Al, I have an AsiaBend as well. I had posted on mbh on it yesterday and as luck would have it, when I went to check the forum, I saw this forum had opened. I look forward to any collaboration on the instrument. It's really a great instrument. I hope it's sells well and we get more keys in the futur...
