New stuff hopefully of interest to chromatic players:
Farrell told me yesterday he talked Hering into tuning some 12 hole
chromatics to Eb. He has had a lot of requests for this key which I guess
is not a standard tuning available on either Hohner or Hering chromatics.
Cost will be $52.00 same as other Hering 12's.
New Hering 64 (16 hole chromatic) will have covers and reed plates bolted
onto a comb similar to "but not a copy of" Farrell's lifetime comb. He
sent them one of his 12 hole combs (he doesn't make a 16 hole) and they
evidently liked the idea - He didn't say what the material is but
obviously some kind of plastic. $93.00
- both of the above available in a couple weeks -
Not making any excuses but I'm sorry you had *two* bad experiences with
Mr. Farrell. Very much not like him. I guess it can happen to anyone -
I've even pi**ed some people off in my lifetime, and I'm the good humor
Your post this morning would have scared me silly if I didn't have a high
regard for his reputation - Late yesterday I ordered $$$ worth of stuff
from him - anyone else might be on the horn today to cancel the order. I
can't wait to get home tonight and open my UPS package.

I almost forgot. Also new from Farrell: A set of 5 books for young
people who want to become musicians. (This is NOT a harmonica course).
Based on keyboard. Designed for serious music study. Titled "Theory and
Musicianship" by Edith MacIntosh (sp?). $29.95 for the set. This is a self
study course with tests - You need a keyboard. (He is considering
including an optional keyboard). This is not something new to the market -
he took this course himself a few years ago before he got into the
