Re: [Harp-L] Low tuned Harps
I'm playing Seydel Solist Pro 12 Steel SBS-type low harmonicas when
possible. The low-notes are very saxophone-like and are great for
I have also found that Session configurable or Session Steel configurable
harps made with holes 2-11 of a corresponding 12-hole harp are very useful,
cheaper, and almost as useful for my purposes. I especially like the Bb
(Bb/LD) which starts on LD nicely covering the range of an alto sax. The
keys of F and Eb are a bit high for me on a conventional 10-hole, so I
likewise enjoy the corresponding harps in the configured Session Steel.
Try a low C, or low D Seydel Solist Pro 12-hole and hear for yourself.
I have never had any trouble with reed-breakage other than normal wear, or
in a couple cases. abuse by me such as trying to overblow a draw-valved hole
or going for a note that simply isn't there.
Greg Jones at 1623customharmonicas.com has made reed repairs and has done
some customization for me. I recommend him as a source for Seydel harps and
parts as well as repairs and customization.
