Blue Moon Double Reed Plate Special 20

Important Announcement

Effective April 17, 2017, I will take a break from building harmonicas to order.  Blue Moon Harmonicas is not a giant company with 100’s of employees.  It is one guy, in Clearwater, FL, building harps, one at a time, as they are ordered by you - my customer.  Summer is rapidly approaching.  The kids will be out of school.  We’ve got some trips and vacations planned.  I am already backed up with orders for harmonicas.  It will take me a month to get caught up as it is.  I see no point in allowing customers to design and purchase harmonicas when I know that I won’t have time to build them until August or September.    I apologize if this has caught you off guard.  If you have already placed an order prior to today, fear not, it will be built and shipped within the next 3-4 weeks.

Custom Combs are Available for Immediate Delivery
This break does not apply to Custom Combs.  I have 100’s of custom combs in stock.  They are prepped and ready for immediate delivery.

Harmonica Kits

I will begin offering Harmonica Kits within the next couple of days.  If you want a Hohner Harmonica, a Harmonica Kit will consist of your choice of a Custom Comb and a New Harmonica.  If you want a Suzuki, you will receive a Custom Comb, a set of Reed Plates and a set of Covers.  I buy complete harps from Hohner. I buy individual components from Suzuki. 

Along with the Harmonica Kits, I will also post some How-To Videos on YouTube which will provide instructions about how to do some basic work on the Reed Plates.  This will include:

  • Flat Sanding the Draw Plate
  • Gapping the Reeds and Adjusting the Profile
  • Tuning

These things are fairly simple and greatly improve the responsiveness and tone of the harmonica.

Ready-to-Go Custom Harmonicas

Lastly, I will be offering small batches of “Ready-to-Go” Custom Harmonicas.  I will offer 10-15-20 harps at a time.  The “Bad News” is that you will not have the ability to choose the Custom Comb but the “Good News” is that they will be ready for immediate delivery.  No waiting!  I will post announcements on Facebook, Modern Blues Harmonica and harp-l when another batch of Ready-to-Go harps is available.

Thanks for your support.  Thanks for understanding that we all need a break every now and then.

A Blue Moon Double Reed Plate Special 20 harmonica begins with a brand new a Hohner Special 20.  We then attach an additional plate that increases the thickness of the reed plate.  By making the chamber formed by the reed slot larger, the amount of air moved as the reeds swing through the slots is greatly increased.  The result is increased volume and improved responsiveness. 

Finally, the Double Reed Plates are mounted on a specially designed Custom Blue Moon Comb. 


The Double Reed Plate Special 20’s are available in the keys of G, Ab, A, Bb, B and C.  They can be ordered with you choice of Brass, Aluminum, Corian, Fancy Acrylic or Hogany Combs.
