Re: NEW: Seydel All Minor

I received mine today! After some initial testing, I have some comments. 1: IT'S AWESOME! I can configure it to standard harmonic minor or standard natural minor, but more interesting are the scales which are not available as standard tunings: first position mixolydian, first position natural minor ...

Re: Combination tremolo/octave tuning?

And just for reference, normal interference between two tones works like this: interference.png The red lines are tones which are almost the same frequency, and the black is their sums. Sometimes the red ones line up, resulting in strong oscillations of the total, and sometimes they cancel each othe...

Re: Combination tremolo/octave tuning?

I'm not sure precisely what you are referring to, but my best guess is that you ask for a harmonica that has two notes, one octave apart, with a tone that beats like a tremolo harmonica. In a normal tremolo, there are only two notes that interact, and only one parameter to consider, namely the diffe...

Re: NEW: Seydel All Minor

But did you consider, that if you change bottom to top and vice versa, you will change right and left as well? And that the length of the reeds get shorter from left to right? The incessions in the coverplates seem to have different length, fitting to the length of the respective reed, not to talk ...

Re: NEW: Seydel All Minor

*) edit: This is an error. I talked to Florian once more to resolve my misunderstanding. Exceptionally and different from former "harmonicas of the month" this offer will be dispatched at once, as long as on stock. When sold out, they will produce some more till end of June or July, if there will b...

Re: NEW: Seydel All Minor

Seems to be plenty of possibilities to experiment with. The mixolydian scale in first position is only one, but a very interesting variation. If top and bottom coverplates are interchangeable is a thing that is to try and to prove. But maybe it will not work, depending on the direction of the slide...

Re: NEW: Seydel All Minor

I didn't think of it at first, but of course this would also let you play a Mixolydian scale in first position! Lol...And maybe set top coverplate on the bottom and vice verse :lol: As crazy as it sounds, this could actually have uses! You could take a country tuned harp and switch back and forth to...

Re: NEW: Seydel All Minor

NEAT! I'm buying one right away! :D There are so many minor modes that it's impractical to keep one harp for each, especially one in every key! If this works as advertised you can play major, natural minor, harmonic minor and Dorian, and maybe maybe, with practice, even shift between ascending and d...
