Re: Hohner Multitune

I'm guessing that's an April Fool's Day joke. Certainly it is. ;) Just a little bit too late. But didn't see it before yesterday. And if I would have waited until 1st of April next year, I would have forgotten about it. Thought the joke too nice not to post it here. :lol: But in a similar vein, I j...

Hohner Multitune

The revolutionary innovation, available since first of April: https://up.picr.de/35446920rx.png But if they would have thought it through to the end, they would have used a star grip screw instead of the recessed slotted screw. This would increase the operator convenience distinctly. dear greetings ...

Re: Old Swedish harmonica music (and a harmonica with bells!)

Returning to the harmonica with the bells: I am not sure about whether Hohner did a small amount of replicas about 20 years ago. And indeed they did in 2006. http://www.sonor.com/fileadmin/hohner_group/hohner/09_documents/Newsletters/Easy_Reeding_Newsletter/EASY-REEDING-SUMMER_2013-web.pdf Look at p...

Re: "Zero to nine" tuning by Fernando Xavier

I assume that Seydel could make a 10-hole 0-9 harp for me. If that is the case, I also assume I should lay the chart out as a 1-10 harp. I did not yet order one. But if you want to do so, you should chose the layout like this, using the Seydel confugurator step by step: https://up.picr.de/35322542x...

Thanks for the link. Its really great. :D And here is the link to the channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwTo237WAb9Ia88QnClsFIg "New Scandinavian Harmonica" - including a march from the time of Gustav Wasa, 1496 - 1560. Not really new indeed. :lol: Anyway, harmonica was not yet that time. Th...

Re: Old Swedish harmonica music (and a harmonica with bells!)

Thank you. I'm not previously familiar with the word 'darrton'. It's not the standard Swedish word for 'tremolo', which is called the same in Swedish, ... No wonder that I did not find it even in Norstedts Stora Ordboken. Therefore my question. ... that recording of Elvira Madigan, no. 26, somewhere...

Re: Old Swedish harmonica music (and a harmonica with bells!)

Thanks for the information and perspective! Do you have any information about which tuning was typically used for the bells, if they where tuned at all? I don't know. (I never have played one. The only ones I had ever seen were in showcases in museum.) But I guess most probably they are not. But it...
