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).

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: 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?

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...
