Re: Rampless Chromatic Comb

Hi David, I saw on Harp-L you have an update to your excellent chrom, but the link didn't work. Always interested to see your new stuff, so please keep us informed here :-)

Your machined comb looks beautiful BTW.

Re: Power Chromatic

Actually PowerBender is the same as PowerChromatic for some of its range. On a 10-hole harp, the scale from hole 4 to hole 8 is PowerChromatic. So some of the stuff from my PowerBender book/CD will transfer over. I'm just awaiting a Seydel in PC to use to make an explanatory video on the tuning. It ...

Re: Midi harmonica dm48

Re: Shifted Paddy Richter D/G

Good to hear that quirky CX-10 is still going and giving you pleasure Jack :-) If you have any videos or recordings playing it, I'd love to hear examples of what you describe.

Re: BloThru OctaChroms - Octave Chromatic Harmonicas

Hi Folks, thanks for the positive feedback on the OctaChroms. To answer: OTHER BRANDS I have Hering and Easttop nearly ready. However both are like the 270: restricted to key of C unless you do retuning. I'm looking at Swan, as they do a high D chrom, but not sure yet if I need to design a whole new...

Re: Blues Harp Mouthpiece and Mini PitchBender for the DM48

It's no problem with the iPad for two inputs. You just need a twin USB hub with one output going to the Apple female USB connector. I've been using both on my iPad no trouble. Here's the Apple connector I have: https://www.apple.com/uk/shop/product/MJ1M2ZM/A/usb-c-to-usb-adapter?afid=p238%7CsL4w7cF5...
