Re: Natural Minor Lucky 13's and New Case?

Is it bad luck to own 13 Lucky 13's? (sorry!) Bob I don't think so. And as it looks, it certainly will not remain like this. ;) To make them in minor keys as well could not be that difficult for the manufacturer's logistics. And above all, you might as well be hanged for a sheep as a lamb. Why not ...

Spanish tuning

Some 30 years ago or so I happened to be at Hohner's in Trossingen and purchased there a Pro Harp in so called "Spanish tuning". Nobody could tell me how to play it. And after the one or the other try I failed to find out how to play something pleasant on it. The harp went into the darkest part of a...

Re: Pentatonic harmonica

... Seydel ... Easy Third which was CEG DFA This is a very fine tuning. I play it too. It is also known as "Do-It"-tuning or " D ale's O pen I rish T uning" (after its inventor Dale King). And in fact, I use it preferrably on Irish tunes like reels and jigs. I have a question concerning this tuning...

Re: Future of this Forum?

Hi all, and specially a question to the administration of this forum: Does the new privacy regulation of the EC concern this forum too? On one hand, the UK is not any more member of the EC, at least within a short time. On the other hand, 1. the forum does offer content to users in the EC, 2. there ...

Re: Saws for cutting reed plates?

I think this looks like a nice small tool. Maybe good for some small and precise serial cuttings, as well as for mitre cuts. But since I have made not so good experience with a freehand mini circular saw, I would prefer a mini angle grinder with ultra thin blades (*) for cutting reed plates, at leas...

St. Patrick's Day 2018

For the Irish souls among the users a little gimmick off-topic, i.e. not containing the use of any harmonica: A small Pipeband of three lovely young ladies from all around the globe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXm8JdC4k4c I was delighted very much.  http://up.picr.de/23437218dc.jpg http://up.pi...

Re: Unibender

Oh how long a time! :mrgreen: Believe me, there are harmonicas in the world, on which I had to wait for more than 2 years or even longer, after I had taken knowledge of their existence and wanted to have them. Just because of they were very rare (some historical ones) or very difficult to obtain (so...

Re: Unibender

Re: Asiabend

Thank you for the hint and the link. Listening and closely looking on the videos seem the best way to me too. Alone for the fact that often there are many different ways to get the tune, sound, effect etc, which depend very much on the individual player's taste, intention and skills. But anyway: If ...
