TuneMaster harmonica

Anything apart from the two mainstream default harmonicas (Solo-tuned fully-valved chromatic, and un-valved Richter 10-hole diatonic). Alternate tunings, different construction, new functionality, interesting old designs, wishful-thinking... whatever!

Indeed. That gives nourishment to my suspicion that it could have been a kind of premature April fool hoax.

Or if not a joke, maybe it is an idea in progress, not yet marketable, and announced too early. We might wait what there will come. The Youtube video is still online.

And it seems to actually cover all the 20 reeds, both blow and draw! To me that makes a world of difference. I need to consider this for my next harp, since custom Seydel harps seldom seem to be that well tuned.

I have asked Dr. Antaki about the tunable range of the low vs. middle vs. high reeds. I will report back here.

So I just got my Tunemaster today and have had a chance to give it a quick trial run.

Based on my first run through I would say you can expect to be able to tune any note down a 1/2 step. With the magnets removed, my harp was about a 1/4 step sharp. You could get down a bit more than a 1/2 step but not as much as a whole step.

So what cool thing would you try with such a tool?

It is fast and easy to change the pitch of the note within that half step.

I think the easiest cool option is to turn your standard richter into a minor key harp in first position.

You can flatten all the thirds and then decide if you want flat 7 or flat 6 for whichever flavor of minor scale you want to use.
