The website indicates “Awaiting Stock.” Any ideas, Brendan, when these will be available again? Thank you.

The AsiaBend is a demanding harmonica to make well, because it has a slider and no valves. These are both areas where air loss can occur, so there must be close tolerances everywhere else. It works best with embossing, to ensure clean tone and easy bends.

I wasn't happy with the performance of the stock model, so discontinued it while working on a replacement with Easttop. That's still ongoing, but the plan was to release it at SPAH. If SPAH doesn't happen, we'd still look to release it at that time.
