You're right George, I got a nice laugh out of your reply, especially the
"New Higher Prices" and "New Country of Orgin". Seriously, I stand corrected
in regard to the new CX-12. It is a totaly new concept and I overlooked it.
My apologies to Mr. Hohner and all the little Hohners... and I promise not to
lose faith so easily in the one an only true harmonica company :-)
With regard to the overblow harp, Winslow Yerxla says he played one and the
overblows were very easy to obtain. I wonder if it could be sold as an
add-on kit to the Golden Melody, or other overblowable harp? I think the
inventor is applying for a patent, and is pursuing production, but alas,
the market demand may be too obscure for high volume.
