The Harmonica Company is the official European retailer for Andrew Zajac combs and accessories, which are widely regarded as the best in the business.
Out of stockAndrew Zajac Custom Dark Comb - Marine Band is made from an earth-friendly composite of 100 per cent recycled paper, resin produced from naturally occurring raw materials and selected natural pigments. This material is strong, dense, waterproof, hypoallergenic, and does not emit any volatile organic compounds, including formaldehyde. It has been certified food safe, contains no petroleum-based chemicals and doesn't have an odour. Note - colour is not specified, but if you have a specific preference, let us know in the notes section of your order. These combs have all the benefits of a flat, unsealed Pearwood comb with none of the drawbacks. This material allows Andrew to focus on flatness without compromising the look and feel. The affordable price reflects how manageable it is to produce excellent combs out of this material. But don't be fooled - these are the very best combs. We do not know of any material that is better suited for harmonica combs. Dark combs™ have a glossy smooth front for comfortable playing. The sides and back of the Dark combs are lightly polished to a matte finish which has a nice appearance and feels comfortable to hold. Over time and with use, these surfaces will develop their own natural shine as they become worn in. Dark combs™ do not shatter when dropped on the floor, and their production has a much lower environmental impact than most other man-made materials. Many types of materials including Corian, brass or other metals can make the harmonica sound very bright. Dark combs help your harmonica produce the fat, dark, woody tone you get from a harmonica with an unsealed Pearwood comb. Why replace your harmonica's comb? To improve the instrument. An airtight harmonica is easier to play and has better tone. But simply switching the comb will not make it play better. A flat comb is only one part of making your harmonica more airtight. Harmonicas require a minute or two of preparation work before combs can be installed. These combs offer superior air tightness. They focus on high performance and do not compromise quality for ease of installation. Instructions and support is included with the purchase of combs. Unsealed Pearwood combs, when perfectly flat, are the model of excellence. Unfortunately, they do not last and will break down and warp with time.... Read more
Why Replace Your Harmonica's Comb?The comb is an integral part of the harmonica, and its material, design and level of flatness has a significant influence on tone, volume and airtightness. Zajac combs are precision engineered to be the flattest available, enabling far greater airtightness, and, as a consequence, easier access to bends and overblows, compared to stock combs. In addition, the composite material used provides the tone of unsealed pearwood, but with none of the disadvantages, such as comb swelling, that are inherent to this material.
Replace the Comb, Not the Whole Harmonica
Many players of harmonicas with traditional wood combs, such as the Marine Band Classic, find that over time the combs crack, or become uncomfortable to play. Rather than replace the entire harmonica, a Zajac comb will bring new life to an old harp and make it sound and play better than new!
Other Comb Options
We always recommend Zajac combs over original equipment ones, but for players who wish to keep their instrument as stock, we can supply manufacturer original combs for most German and Japanese made harmonicas - just drop us a line with your request.
