Just found this forum. I posted this on Slidemeister. Would it be possible to tune a Richter Koch harp to a Powerbender? That way I can have a slide harp with the same tuning as my diatonic's.

Yes, this is something I've done myself a few times. For the tip two holes I recommend swapping blow and draw reeds, otherwise tune with solder.

Another option is to make a PowerBender mini-chromatic using two PB diatonics in my SwitchHarp. You'll need to do some tuning compensation in the high end, but not difficult. Video on the SwitchHarp page: ... -minichrom
