Product Description

Will Wilde Rock Harmonica Tuning

SEYDEL Endorser Will Wilde is the inventor of this Special Tuning which is very well suited for "tougher" musical styles like Hardrock or Blues-Rock. Read here how this tuning was invented and why Will uses it regularely since a few years in his shows:

"I designed the Wilde tuning specifically for playing hard rock and blues-rock on the harmonica. As much as I love the standard Richter tuning, I have always found it frustrating when it comes to playing “rock guitar” style licks, particularly in the upper octave.  The Wilde tuning addresses all of the problems I had with Richter, whilst still retaining the bluesy feel of classic second position harmonica that we all know and love.

Whereas Richter tuning was primarily designed for playing major chords and the major scale in first position, Wilde tuning is specifically designed for playing second position minor pentatonic and blues scale licks, throughout all three octaves.

I have always preferred the sound of draw notes and draw bends to blow notes and blow bends, as you can get more expression and a better tone & vibrato from them.  So, on the Wilde tuning ALL of the draw notes bend (from holes one to ten) and your root note lands on a draw in all three octaves.

I think that the Wilde tuning is the configuration that every aspiring rock harp player has been waiting for."

Excellent customer service! My recent purchase required a couple of alterations in details and they were very responsive about it. Despite the changes in the order, the item actually arrived earlier than expected!

Hohner Marine Band Crossover Harmonica

Hohner Marine Band Crossover Harmonica The Hohner Marine Band Crossover is the top of the line standard tuned harmonica within the brand's Marine Band series of traditional wood comb harps. Responding to the needs of professional players who wanted an instrument that combined the tone and feel of a wood comb with the swell resistance and durability of modern designs like the Special 20, Hohner created the Crossover, which features a unique bamboo comb, and precision-tuned reed plates, all wrapped up in a compact, Marine Band style body. The laminated bamboo comb gives the Crossover an exceptionally light feel in the hands, and also allows for class - leading flatness. This greatly facilitates airtightness, which makes the Crossover an extremely responsive harp, with easy access to precise bends, and the ability to overblow, if required. In fact, it is one of the most airtight production harmonicas on the market, meaning that less of your effort is lost to leakage, allowing even beginners to start bending notes almost immediately! The comb also features Supaglide lacquer applied to all surfaces, which not only adds an extra barrier to moisture, but also greatly facilitates the playing of rapid licks as the surface is ultra smooth and friction free. The Crossover's temperament is a modern compromise tuning - marginally closer to equal temperament than the Marine Band 1896 or Deluxe. This makes it ideal for single note melody playing, whilst maintaining the ability to play chords. Tolerances between reed and reed plate are exceptionally good on this harp, as is the consistency of reed adjustment, making this feel more like a custom harmonica than an off the shelf model. Reeds: 20 Brass Reed Plates: 0.9mm, Brass Number of holes: 10 Cover surface:  stainless steel Mouthpiece surface: SuperGlide lacquer Comb: bamboo, blond Now Also available in key G High ... Read more

Easttop Brendan Power Lucky 13 Harmonica

12 Keys available

The Easttop Brendan Power Lucky 13 harmonica has it all: the standard range you're used to plus that Big Bottom, right there in your hands! Once you get used to a 4-octave Bass Blues Harmonica it is very hard to go back to the restricted range of a 10-hole harp ever again. It's two harps for the price of one: normal and low range, without having to buy/store both or switch harps in a tune. Here are the main features of the Easttop Brendan Power Lucky 13: World's first 13-hole harp, Patent Pending. Exactly 4 octave range in Richter tuning, with lower octave tagged on to normal 10-hole range. The same 7.5mm hole spacing as a normal 10-hole harp! That means it's easy to adapt to. Comfortable curved top cover, bottom cover raised at the bass end so the draw reeds never rattle. Holes in the coverplate ends, for extra volume. Solid comb, flat-sanded. Durable phosphor-bronze reeds. Thick chromed reedplates, secured with 11 screws for uniform airtightness. Clear visual numbering on top cover relates to the 10-hole diatonic, to make sure you never lose your place. Available in all 12 keys Key indicators on front and ends of the comb, for those who like to stack harps vertically. Perfect for low chord rhythm or melody lines, and extended octave playing. Possible to re-tune the lower 3 holes to create new chords or extended alt tunings.   Lucky 13 Demonstration Video:    ... Read more
