Folk

Folk music has been inextricably linked with the harmonica ever since the invention of the instrument. Its simplicity and the ability to pair it with a guitar, via the use of a harmonica holder, make it ideally suited to the stripped down sound of much folk music.

This revolutionary Suzuki diatonic harp is named after Mr. Manji Suzuki, the company's founder — now in his late 80's, however still pretty much in charge. He started with a single hand-built model nearly 70 years ago, and has built Suzuki up into one of the world's premier harmonica manufacturers. Number of holes: 10 Cover plates: Stainless steel Reed plates:  Phosphor Bronze, 20 reeds Comb: Resin Wood Composite Keys: C/G/A (3 piece set) Made in Japan About Suzuki Suzuki is one of the world's leading harmonica manufacturers, and has been producing harmonicas and related instruments in Japan since 1963. Its signature feature is phosphor bronze reeds, which provide a distinctive sound and outlast traditional brass reeds. In common with other harmonicas made in Japan, such as those manufactured by Tombo, Suzukis tend to be tuned to equal temperament, rather than the compromised tuning more commonly found on German made Hohners and Seydels. This makes them ideally suited for playing melody lines, although chords are also possible.

£36.99

Out of stock

For those who want a great-playing half-valved Paddy-Richter harp while saving a significant amount of cash, we're proud to announce The Brendan Power Paddy Richter model - manufactured by Easttop. It has a couple of unique features to make it even more user-friendly! First, there's a Look-Dot (position marker) on the middle front of the comb; with a quick glance, this will orient you on the harp so you never lose your place. Second, there's a seventh inside valve to give extra soul and volume to hole 7 blow - a very important note for playing all the main positions in Irish music. Without realising it, players put too much pressure on this reed, often causing it to fail. The extra valve will protect the 7 blow reed as well as allow you to add valved bending and vibrato to it – a win-win! Available in the keys of G, D, C & A. Brendan is really pleased with how his own-brand Paddy-Richter harp plays – you will be too. About Brendan Power Brendan Power is one of the world's leading harmonica players and innovators. He's developed a number of new tuning schemes for harmonicas, including Powerbender, Powerdraw and Paddy Richter and can be heard playing harmonica on a range of recordings from artists such as Sting and Kate Bush....

Brendan Power PowerBender Harmonica

£28.99

Out of stock

The Brendan Power PowerBender Harmonica tuning builds on the best parts of the traditional Richter Tuning, while altering the scale to make the real juicy and important notes much easier to obtain throughout the whole three octave range. If you're interested in a fresh sound on the 10 hole diatonic, LOTS more bending expression and easy jazzy playing, the Brendan Power PowerBender harmonica is a good choice for you! Same familiar breathing pattern in the upper-middle registers. All draw notes bend everywhere, holes 1-10! On the un-valved version you can overblow every hole 1-10, for full chromatic playing. Overdraws and blow bends are no longer possible or needed on a PowerBender - they are replaced with simple draw bends. On the half-valved version, a mix of normal draw bends and valved blow bends gives full chromaticism. Top octave easy to play (intuitive) as many familiar phrasings can be adopted from the bottom octaves Easy to play in the common positions: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 11th, and 12th. PowerBender Background PowerBender represents the culmination of 30 years experimenting to create personal alternate tunings. Each one is really usable; I’ve proved that by recording 18 albums with various earlier alternate tunings. They all have excellent qualities that remain valid for those who wish to explore them further, and will be described and demonstrated in other books. However, I believe that in the POWERBENDER I have hit a winning combination of strengths that rivals the Richter tuning for all-round playability, but surpasses it for expressiveness, ease of play and contemporary relevance. The POWERBENDER is a new universal tuning updating the 10 hole diatonic for modern music styles, which emphasize note bending and fluent improvisation in different keys. It builds on all the best parts of the traditional Richter tuning, while altering the scale to make the real juicy, important notes much easier to obtain, with fantastic expressive ability throughout the whole three octave range. Its beauty and strength is that it relies overwhelmingly upon draw bending for chromaticism and expression, an easy technique all players master quickly. Every draw note bends a semitone or more. Overblows are still available but significantly reduced in importance, as they are not required for most playing. A development of my earlier tuning experiments, the POWER BENDER reached its final form in 2008; since then I have adopted it as my main tuning for improvising in blues, jazz, rock, folk and pop styles. It’s such an easy and sweet sounding tuning on out-of-the-box harps that anyone who tries it quickly gets hooked.... Read more

£28.99

Out of stock

Brendan Power PowerDraw Harmonica - if you're interested in incredible draw bending expression in the top octave whilst retaining all the best aspects of a traditional harp in the lower two octaves, the PowerDraw is a good choice for you! Just top off the standard Richter tuning in holes 1-6 with the logical breathing pattern and draw-bending soul of my PowerBender tuning on holes 7-10. It's a win-win! PowerDraw tuning is a combination of standard Richter (holes 1-6) and PowerBender (holes 7-10). The Best of Both Worlds! It's easy to learn because: The bulk of the harp (holes 1-6) stays exactly the same as normal, so there is no need to re-learn anything in that comfortable range you're so accustomed to. The breathing pattern of holes 1-6 (blow reed low, draw reed high in each hole) is retained all the way up to hole 10 on the PowerDraw! This gives the top octave an instant feeling of familiarity to anyone who tries it, because the techniques and riffs that work so well lower down work up there too Simplified Technique: There are no blow bends and no overdraws needed in the PowerDraw tuning. Two of the most important 'blue' notes in 2nd position (the flat third, which was overblow 6) and the flat fifth (overdraw 7) are now simple draw bends on holes 7 and 8: the octave-up equivalents of the familiar draw bends on holes 3 and 4. Every draw note bends from hole 7-10, soulful and easy! That's right - you can now really WAIL up high on your harp! Plus, in un-valved setup, every hole overblows for chromatic playing, and the upper octave overblows are much easier than the overdraws necessary in Richter tuning. PowerDraw works well with the octave-playing approach of tongue blockers. The notes in the top octave are similar to Richter, but the intervals are slightly different. Octave splitting is actually easier, because both blow and draw notes have a 5 hole split above hole 4. ... Read more

It features chromed metal covers for comfortable performance, and moisture-resistant ABS plastic combs for bright sound, tuning stability and ease of cleaning and maintenance. About Fender Fender Musical Instrument Corp can trace it origins to Leo Fender’s original business – Fender Radio Service, which was involved in the repair and maintenance of PAs and radio equipment. Experiments with the lap steel guitar in the 1940s led to them changing their name to Fender Instruments, and  producing one of the earliest solid body electric guitars – the Telecaster. This differed from competitors' solid body guitars in its use of a more economical bolt on neck, allowing production costs to be lower without sacrificing tone or feel. This led to the development of their most famous guitar – the Stratocaster – which helped to shape popular music throughout the 1960s and beyond. Fender today produces a large range of amplifiers and instruments, ranging from those designed for beginners to extremely high end professional level equipment. Harmonicas are a recent addition to the Fender portfolio of instruments, but the Blues Deluxe has the same level build quality, playability and tone you would expect from any product from the “Big F”....

The phosphor bronze reeds are responsive, and give a rich, warm sound.

About Fender Fender Musical Instrument Corp can trace it origins to Leo Fender’s original business – Fender Radio Service, which repaired and maintained PAs and radio equipment in the 1930s and 1940s. After a brief foray into the production of lap steel guitars, Fender began to focus on the burgeoning market for solid body electric guitars. The result was the Telecaster - a simple and relatively affordable electric guitar that did without the glued in neck and more expensive detailing of the Gibson Les Paul, which was its main rival in the early electric guitar marketplace. Consequently, the Telecaster was substantially cheaper than the Gibson, leading to its adoption by many an up and coming band. Fender today produces a range of amplifiers and instruments, from beginners' models to extremely high end professional level equipment. Harmonicas are a recent addition to the Fender portfolio of instruments, but the Blues Deluxe has the same level build quality, playability and tone you would expect from any product from one of the world's most famous musical instrument manufacturers....

The Best Harmonica for Folk?

Most 10 hole diatonics will work well for folk music, but it is probably wise to stick with Richter tuned harps (or derivations thereof, such as Paddy Richter), unless you're playing Eastern European folk, which utilises the harmonic minor. Some players look for a traditional sound and feel for playing folk, with wood comb harps, such as the Marine Band 1896 Classic, being particularly popular. Another great option, albeit one that is more pricey, is the Seydel 1847 Classic, which blends traditional looks and feel with state of the art German silver reed plates.

Harmonica Holders for Folk

Harmonica holders fit round the neck of the player and enable the simultaneous playing of guitar (or another similar instrument) and harmonica. Bob Dylan is perhaps the most famous exponent of this device, and many of his early, pre-electric performances involved the use of guitar and a harmonica holder.

Famous Folk Harmonica Players and their Harmonicas

Bob Dylan used a Hohner Marine Band for much of his early work, only moving to a Hohner Blues Harp in more recent years. For some years he also had a signature harmonica produced by Hohner, although this is really only a lightly modified Blues Harp with a nicer case.

Harmonica Folk Music

The harmonica has featured in folk music since the instruments invention in the 19th century, so there is a significant amount of folk music tabs (basic musical notation for the harmonica) available that shows how to play these tunes. A good resource for the is Learn the Harmonica, which has tabs for folk tunes such as 'Blowin' in the Wind' by Bob Dylan and traditional songs such as 'Danny Boy'.

How to Play Folk Harmonica

Folk music doesn't usually require bends in the same way that blues and rock harmonica does, so the focus is on single note melodies, sometimes accompanied by chords played at the lower end of the harmonica. This doesn't mean that it is an easier genre to play, however; many traditional Irish melodies, for instance, require great speed and dexterity from the harmonica player. To make this a little easier, some players opt for a special tuning that is specifically designed to facilitate the playing of these complex and rapid pieces of music - Paddy Richter
