Re: An Idea in Need of an Application - Suggestions?

However, I wonder if we're talking at cross purposes? You talk about dual-function reeds as if the reeds themselves can be played as blow or draw. I guess you imagine reeds with zero offset, such as are used in the Bawu and other Chinese flute-type instruments. If that's the case, you have misunder...

Re: An Idea in Need of an Application - Suggestions?

I see, it seems to be important to know more details about the function and construction of these "double action" reeds. If you don't want to discuss this here in public yet, maybe you could post it to the interested users by personal message or email. At least I would prefer to discuss the one or t...

Thanks Triona. If you think of something, post a scale layout do we can understand your meanibg. The Modular Reed harp is on pause for this year.
But do you still have some more reeds on stock for further tests?

To specify those ideas take sa little time.

Re: An Idea in Need of an Application - Suggestions?

This intriguing idea is quite triggering my fantasy. :D Here my first thoughts roughly sketched, subject to further investigation: 1. I shall think about the possibility to use this idea to design a more compact bordune (i.e. drone) harmonica. Especially if there might be a use for playing drone cho...

Re: Double Paddy Wilde Rock Lucky 13!

Thanks.
For experimentation with quite similar tuning variations like this, your modular harp would be an ideal instrument. Do you intend to keep on the idea? I would like this very much. I had been thinking about suggestions for some improvements as well.

Re: Notes from the Workshop

One more interesting idea from long ago by Cham-Ber Huang:

It seems to be related with this to some degree. I did not yet understand the construction fully. But at least the slide seems to be on the back of the harmonica as well.

Re: England meets Sweden

He's a powerful player and nice guy. Yes, that is true. I happened to meet him at a concert not very long ago. (It was the year when his sister got her baby.) We did not talk about his tuning of which I did not not have heared of yet by that time. We talked about the upcoming baby :lol: and about t...

Re: Double Paddy Wilde Rock Lucky 13!

Paddy Power Bender and Paddy Power Draw - are these tunings ready to order OOTB? Or are these individually retuned ones?

Re: Notes from the Workshop

Looks interesting. And I guess the old patents might have run out now. But as I know you, you could evade them by some substantial improvement anyway. :lol:
