Bernie Bray was a famous Canadian harmonica player who was honoured by SPAH. Every year during the annual SPAH concert The Bernie Bray award is given to the most talented player of the year.
Search for "Bernie Bray harmonica" in Google and you will find many interesting links.
There are quite a few Harmonetta players these days. It is frequently used in Harmonica groups as accompaniment. The fact it can play jazz chords makes it very interesting also.
I have a Harmonetta which is in excellent condition and it is for sale.
If you are interested in buying it please write to me at fmajor7 at xxxxx

> Hello, I was reading about the harmoneta while looking at Wikipedia’s list of similar piano-type instruments. While reading the article on the harmonetta, it says that perhaps Bernie Bray owned one at one time. The references for this article list two harmonica publications, but I wonder if the text was simply copied from them, because there’s no link pointing to who Bernie Bray is. Does someone know the reference, and perhaps if you have a Wikipedia account you could edit the article? I have been intrigued by the harmonetta for a few years, but haven’t come across one, and as the article says they are prone to some failure.
