Re: [Harp-L] help! in dire need of low F#

I also use low F# harps a lot, and still have a few of the old SP 20s in low F#. They're great - but Hohner doesn't make them anymore. I was in need of a new one or two and talked to RockinRon - he told me that for some reason Hohner makes low F# reed plates, even though they don't make low F# harps. I know - that makes no sense - I think they are Marine Band Deluxe reed plates, but I bought one from RockinRon a couple of weeks ago and he checked with Hohner and they said it would retrofit onto a Crossover in G. 

Seydel makes a low F# in a couple of models too. I like the 1847 version OK, but not the Session Steel version. 

Suzuki's new low keyed Manji does not come in a low F#.

You could make one out of a low F. That's what I did.
