After reading the many posts by Winslow and others on this, I pulled out
my Yamaha Band "Super" harp, which is more on the thickness of the
discete comb (which I also have) than some of the tremelo harps.
Bending was extremely easy, with just the technique Winslow mentioned.
Incidentally, and my reason in posting, I think this is a harp worth
searching out, as it has 23 holes doubled (why 23? ), and has sort of
the layout of a chromatic with no slide (but with some changes that can
be dealt with pretty easily). Works very well for 3rd position blues, a
really full sound when you play octaves, and with the bending capability
it has a bonus. I have no idea if these are currently being made; I got
mine from ebay after seeing a friend performing with one. Anyone else
play around with these?
