Re: Reeds Attached with Screws

Oo, top of the jokers set - or ass card drawn, by other words. I don't envy you. The usual way is to drill out the screw - with a diameter not exceeding the core diameter of the screw. Then tetap the thread. I have done this many many times - with diameters of M 4, M5, M6, ... up to M16 or so. But I...

Re: Retuning a Hohner Vineta

Wow! Thanks for the info. It looks like maybe trying to find the Gm Dm Am version would make a nice complement to the one I have. Still interested in anyone's chord suggestions. At it's simplest, I suppose the question is this: If you have C, F, G and C7, G7, D7, what next 6 chords would you most l...

Re: The need for valves.

I think keeping the harp warm should help quite much. If you put it into your heating box when leaving the house, it should be prepared enough for playing and proper function of the valves, until you have reached your hill. But you should watch, that the temperatur in the heating box does not exceed...

Re: The need for valves.

Just try and remove them. In the case that you are not satisfied with the resukt, you can replace them again. Seydel offers sets of valves as a sparepart. You can even chose the improved ones, they have since new. http://www.seydel1847.de/epages/Seydel1847.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/Seydel/Categori...

Re: Bass Harmonica

I've made a couple of experimental harmonicas using low reed blocks from accordions, and they sound sweet. Getting blocks in the right note combinations to make a harmonica scale is a bit trickier, and they can be quite expensive. Thanks for the reminder - I've been meaning to revisit that idea in ...

And anyway, what would be this then?
