The mellower sound was wood, while the brighter sound was brass. This was true even when each was played by a different harmonica player (the demonstrator players were Tom Stryker and Gerhard Mueller).Later, I had the opportunity to play the instrument with both wood and brass inserts. Not only did I hear the difference as a player, the people sitting next to me, Michelle LeFree and David Fairweather, remarked on how strong the differences where when heard close up.I haven’t confirmed this but I believe Hohner will have the ACE 48 available to try out at the SPAH convention.
