Re: Lucky 13 Power Chromatic key of D

I think I am beginning to understand how to choose which harmonicas I might want—all of them! ... After reading your posts I plan to buy at least the PC in G as a starter. Then as I begin to develop my skills I can make a better decision about which other harps to buy. I guess you just have got it....

Re: Lucky 13 Power Chromatic key of D

How about taking both of them? Which one is best for you to play any song might depend on the tune and the chords you want to play. This might vary from tune to tune. And you could always try which one fits best for you to play the very tune. :D

Re: New Tool and Method for Improving Harmonica Reed Response

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_article_surveillance#Acousto-magnetic_systems I presume a very thin feeler gauge (aka thickness gauge or ignition gauge) will do as well. I use one with the thickness of 0,05 mm, which always is in my harmonica tool box. Usually I use it for the correction of...

Re: NEW - instructional videos for Play Irish Music on the Blues Harp

No. I have a laptop with MSWindows7 and Google Chrome. (Maybe you have seen it. I had it with me in Norrköping.) I am definitely not able to change anything on this machine, because the next thing would be, that there will not run anything any more. :oops: If any of the videos will run like the trai...

Re: NEW - instructional videos for Play Irish Music on the Blues Harp

Sorry, vimeo does not yet run on my equipment, neither last night, nor just now. But I had unclear problems with vimeo videos for several times in the past. Maybe these require too much resources or anything else that my computer does not have (like any sophisticated new software or alike). I don't ...

Re: NEW - instructional videos for Play Irish Music on the Blues Harp

I tried to watch the trailer video. It was not possible. The video stopped constantly after some seconds before it continued for some seconds again and so on. So the playing was all cut into little pieces. 1. Is the video's rate of data too high for my computer or for my connection? 2. Is this the s...

Re: QUESTION: Is diatonic solo tuned harmonica with recessed reedplates and 12 holes produced?

Why it must be recessed (= lipped) combs? With standard combs of wood there would be Seydel Solist Pro 12. And if it could be 13 holes as well, there would be Brendan's Lucky 13 with standard plastic combs. And these are even available readily tuned as Power Chromatics as well. dear greetings triona
