Double Reed Plate Special 20 with Corian Comb

  • 17495


Blue Moon Double Reed Plate
Special 20 with Corian Comb

The Blue Moon Special 20 is built with one of our CNC Milled Corian?ÿCombs and Hohner Special 20 Reed Plates & Covers. 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.

At present we have four colors of Corian Combs to choose from:.

  • Black
  • Glacier White
  • Hot Red

Keys Available = G, Ab, A, Bb & C

Keys Available = G, Ab, A, Bb & C

Our Double Reed Plate Special 20s will be built according to your instructions.  You can choose from the available Keys, Custom Combs, Set-up and Tuning to personalize your harmonica.  

The Standard Set-up for our harmonicas is a "Blues Set-up".  These harmonicas are designed for playing Traditional Blues, Rock, Country, Gospel and Folk music.  They feature the following upgrades:

  • Installation of a Custom Blue Moon Comb
  • Draw Plate flat sanded and tapped for screws
  • Covers opened in the back
  • Gaps adjusted for optimum response
  • Reed profiles checked and shaped if necessary
  • Cover Brace Installed (See Pictures)
  • Tuned to Modern Compromise Temperament @ A=442Hz (alternate tunings available upon request)

Our Standard Blues Set-up is the harmonica of choice for most players.  These harps are airtight, responsive, in tune, very comfortable in your hands and on your lips and tongue.  Although we don't promote them as "Overblow Harps", it very easy to Overblow the 4, 5 and 6 on these harps (assuming you know how to overblow).  If you want a full blown custom harp that can be played chromatically by use of Overblows and Overdraws, this will require an extensive amount of additional reed work and customization. Consequently, there is an additional charge to produce such a harmonica.  In addition, we offer a number of alternate tunings, some which do not carry an additional charge and some of which do.

Custom Set-up and Tuning Options:

  • Equal Temperament (No Additional Charge)
  • 19-Limit Just Intonation (No Additional Charge)
  • 7-Limit Just Intonation Tuning (No Additional Charge)
  • Country Tuning ($5.00 Additional Charge)
  • Paddy Richter Tuning ($5.00 Additional Charge)
  • Natural Minor Tuning ($20.00 Additional Charge)
  • Harmonic Minor Tuning ($20.00 Additional Charge)
  • Overblow/Overdraw Full Chromatic Set-up ($50.00 Additional Charge) (Extensive Reed Work to facilitation Overblows on holes 4, 5 and 6 and Overdraws on holes 7, 8, 9 and 10 which enable the harmonica to be played Chromatically
