Re: Idea for slideless chromatic harp

Btw: The pictured display with two different colours for blow and draw reeds is suitable for harmonicas which change air direction with every reed on each reedplate. For harmonicas with only blow or only draw reeds on each reedplate the simple classical layout tab is sufficient. Anyone can easily un...

Re: Idea for slideless chromatic harp

The S-50's layout seems more intuitive to me. I think I will try one. I think so as well. It depicts the layout of the harmonica exactly like you see it when looking on the mouthpiece. Here you can see some more examples, if you like to adapt it as well: Suzuki Humming SU-21-H (Tremolo) https://up....

It's funny. The French does the display of the layout of harps with alternating aspiration pattern the same way like me. I've never seen anyone else do it like this before. :D

Re: Idea for slideless chromatic harp

Another approach is to adopt a design like the Tombo S50. Pat Missin has written a good article on it and other slideless chromatics here: https://www.patmissin.com/ffaq/q24.html This requires no bending or overblowing to get a chromatic scale, though they are possible. Quite an interesting harmoni...

Re: TuneMaster harmonica

Thank you.

It really seems that this turbo slide technics only work on the blow reeds.
For applications like shown in Brendan's video this is sufficient.
But with the TuneMaster harmonica it would supply only half of the thing that I would wish.

Re: TuneMaster harmonica

Ok, if you think so. Then let us wait till it is on stock again. Maybe the first one who might purchase it can write a review here. Considering about magnetism as the function principle: If it is working with the reeds directly being affected by magnetism (*), magnetic reeds are the precondition tha...

Re: TuneMaster harmonica

This looks nice! But it only works on the blow reads, right? It's really hard to see in the video, and I get t he feeling he is hiding the bottom reed plate. Still cool though, there's a lot you can do by only changing the blow reeds! I think he is pretty much hiding everything essential on this vi...

Re: TuneMaster harmonica

Looks quite interesting. https://www.turboharp.com/tunemaster-harp But it is "out of stock". Did you already see any of these, or even had one in your hands for a test? Even as it was not released on April 1st, it looks to me a little bit like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stobfk1Mfjk :mrgre...

Re: First position natural minor custom tuning.

Lee Oskar labelling can be confusing. That is really true in fact. Once I stumbled over this when trying to replace a worn Tombo by a Seydel. There was some fuzz until I got the right one. Same label, but diferent sound. :roll: Eventually I gave the broken one to Seydel to copy the tuning. After al...

Re: Double harmonic custom tuning.

Thanks for sharing.
Looks very interesting and worth a try.
Quite easy to retune, just the B down to Bb and the F# down to F, at least 5 reeds altogether.
I like mideastern music and flamenco etc.
