Re: Power Chromatic

Fantastic.
I look forward to the small than a chromatic form factor, so I can have a pocket PC.

Re: Power Chromatic

I will definitely be up for a couple of keys for a PC Lucky 13. The "PCLY13?"

Re: Power Chromatic

I have been tempted to try PC but is unsure what benefits i can use with it compaired to what i already are using. I have used halfvalved powerbender since it came out. My goal with it was to be able to play all chromatic notes. That is achieved and i can play all 12 major scales but maybe i am are...

Re:

https://youtu.be/d1LzQOZqtp4 Here is a video of me playing "Kitchenaire" from the awesome album, "Lament for the 21st Century". Here I play it on a Key of C, Hohner CX-12 that I put in Bb P.C. tuning. Im playing with the button in (mostly) so the home key of the tune is B major! @Paris (Thumbs up) ...

Re: Power Chromatic

@Slava -
Sorry if I was not clear on it.

I wrote up some stuff on it last night, posted it, but on reflection this morning. I think i may have made errors, so I pulled it off. I will throw a comment back out soon.

Re: Discontinued

For the Chromabender type harp: .... Do you have advice as far as valving the reeds on the active plate? I am looking at the same thing myself. I asked up a bit further how to do it for PC tuning, which is close to what you have done. Given his comment that "You don't want to put any valves in that...

Re: Discontinued

You don't want to put any valves in that will interfere with the airflow between active red and x-reed. Assuming you put your x-reeds on the bottom reedplate (as with the ChromaBender), and it's in Solo tuning, you should not put on any inside valves holes 1-3 or an outside valve on hole 4 (or the ...

Re: Discontinued

I just finished making my own chromabender. ..... The one I finished is in C, made from 270 reedplates. C6 tuning. @CrawfordE I am working on the same thing. If you don't mind me asking, how did you set up the valves on the X-reed plate? Or did you set up any on them at all. That seems to be a piec...

Re: Power Chromatic

It had never occurred to me to do this before but seems like a very intriguing modification! @ Paris. If you like Diatonic then you might like something I am working with. I just flipped the plates. That way, when I am pushing the slide, I am always "Going Down," so to speak. Couple of things this ...

Re: Discontinued

The Asiabend is great. You will get used to the all draw faster than you think. It just takes a different kind of breath regulation. There is some discussion deeper in this board on them. I missed the ball also on Chromabenders, unfortunately. I probably would have picked up a set if I was paying at...
