Re: PowerBender key choice

I would choose an Eb PowerBender for Gm/Bb . 5th Position is really nice on the PowerBender. That's what I'm using on the Will Wilde video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5V0mPDpxYk (below the video) the track is in Em ; Will is playing an A harp in 2nd Position, I'm playing a C harp in 5th Posit...

Re: Lucky 13 Power Chromatic key of D

... Tab gives me a good map of where the notes are. Still, a lot of it is trial-and-error. But be aware that there is no consistent and generally valid system how to write tabs.

Re: Hohner Penta from 1955

Maybe it's a single harmonica, as described here: https://www.patmissin.com/ffaq/q36.html ? An instrument seems to be intended for early music education without bottom reeds.
