"Richter's Backpack" ... for the B. Power Twin Harmonica System

Anything apart from the two mainstream default harmonicas (Solo-tuned fully-valved chromatic, and un-valved Richter 10-hole diatonic). Alternate tunings, different construction, new functionality, interesting old designs, wishful-thinking... whatever!

"Richter's Backpack" ... for the B. Power Twin Harmonica System

Post by IaNerd » Sun Dec 10, 2017 6:54 pm

NAME: "Richter's Backpack" ... for the B. Power Twin Harmonica System

BASIC CONCEPT:
Many players are devoted to the iconic Richter diatonic tuning for 10-hole harps. This "Backpack" allows them to retain every iota of the Richter system and incorporate additional musical capabilities.

WHEN/HOW: December of 2017. I have not had one made.

LAYOUT/DETAILS:
Slide-Out would be Standard Richter. Slide-In would switch to the "Backpack".


Notes of the Blues Scale in G: G — A#/Bb — C — C#/Db — D — F — G

Replacing the 4, 7 and/or 10 blows with E would make for nice draw-bends from G to F in those chambers.

It could be interesting to change chambers 5 and/or 9 to B-flat blow and C# draw, with a partial draw-bend from C# to C.

An arguably better "Backpack" for Richter tuning can be seen in the topic entitled "PowerBender/PowerDraw's "Backpack" ... for Twin-Harp system".
