Re: Shifting a tuning to fit a certain range (i.e. that of a fiddle)

F natural in G is not there, that's a drawback. Possibly you could substitute one of the F# notes for an F, but that could be awkward. The best one would be lowering the draw F# in the G scale to F, and removing the inside valve. That would give you a blow bend down to F#, as well as the slide-in v...

Re: Shifting a tuning to fit a certain range (i.e. that of a fiddle)

Hi Edvin,

I just read this once again. I think now I have understood the idea behind your approach for the first time - at least a little bit. Sometimes it takes a little bit longer, befor the penny is dropping with me. :lol:


dear greetings

Re: Lucky 13 Powerchromatic, key D, plus some diatonics

Hi Triona, yes the tuning above is correct. ... except of the fact that the enantonics rather should be called C# instead of Db with the key of D. :lol: Will on you about the lucky 13 :D Is this a typo? Or is it an idiom I never have heard of before? :oops: Hi Triona, cover plates are chrome. Oh, v...

Re: Lucky 13 Powerchromatic, key D, plus some diatonics

No problems on the PM yet. I got it. I will answer tonight regarding the trade (payment, shipping address etc). As for the harmonica: I presume the cover plates come with the black coating as a surface finish? They usually were like this those days afaik. Maybe I can get some chrome steel cover plat...

Re: Lucky 13 Powerchromatic, key D, plus some diatonics

Hi Dan, I would like to buy the Lucky13 Power Chromatic, key D. Is it posible for you to post it to Germany? (I think a normal letter will do.) Btw: Did I count out the layout of the D key correctly? (The layout of the G key I copied from Brendans website.) https://up.picr.de/38477004bs.jpg dear gre...

more records from Brendan

discovered today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QcZ14UFdR8 O'Carolan belongs to my favourites. And I love the harp too. It comes from his 2015 album "Harp to Harp", which he did together with Anne-Marie O'Farrel on the harp. I already have quite a lot of Brendan's records. But this one I did not ...

Re: PowerChromatic options?

@ Seydel: And if the high price should be a retarding argument, I can recommend to choose the "Deluxe Steel" version. It has eactly the same reedplates as the "Saxony Steel". The difference is the acrylic comb of the "Deluxe" instead of the aluminium comb of the Saxony - besides the satinised finish...
