Double Reed Plate Special 20 with Brass Comb
Blue Moon Double Reed Plate
Special 20 with Brass Comb
The Blue Moon Special 20 is built with one of our CNC Milled Brass Combs and Hohner Special 20 Reed Plates & Covers.?ÿ We then add an extra plate (essentially a reed plate without reeds) and a Blue Moon Special 20 comb that has been custom designed to accommodate the thicker plates. The extra plates are mounted on top of the blow plate and between the draw plate and the comb to create reed plates that are thicker than stock Special 20 reed plates (not quite twice as thick). The principle behind this design is that the Double Reed Plates create larger chambers in the reed slots. Therefore each time a reed swings through the slot it will move more air than as compared to a standard reed plate. The result is increased volume and responsiveness.
Keys Available = G, Ab, A, Bb & C
