Got CNC? (for Big Six combs)

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!

Got CNC? (for Big Six combs)

Post by IaNerd » Sun Aug 13, 2017 6:14 pm

Some time ago I had an idea for a custom Big Six comb. I made a non-functional prototype #1 out of pine. I sent that to Andrew Zajac, who made a functional prototype #2 out of darkwood. I modified #2 myself, to make #3. I sent #3 to Tom Halchak, to see if he could duplicate it in aluminum or brass. Tom said he really likes my idea, but that startup costs for production would be prohibitive.

If you CNC metal and are intrigued, please pm me.
