Manji Harmonicas

Our Custom Blue Moon Manji Harmonicas will be built according to your instructions.  You can choose from the available Keys and Custom Combs 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
  • Tuned to Modern Compromise Temperament @ A=442Hz (alternate tunings available upon request)

If the harmonica in question is a Classic Marine Band 1896, in addition to the above, the nailed construction will be converted to one with screws.

Our Standard Blues Set-up will be the harmonica of choice for the vast majority of players.  Although we don't promote these harps as "Overblow Harps" the airtight construction and reed adjustments makes it very easy to Overblow the 4, 5 and 6.  If you want a harp that can be played chromatically by use of Overblows and Overdraws, there is an additional charge for the extensive reedwork required to produce such a harmonica.  In addition, a number of other alternate tunings, listed below, are available.

  • Overblow/Overdraw Set-up - $50.00 (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)
  • 7-Limit Just Intonation $ 0 (No charge) (Original Marine Band Tuning which features a flattened 5 and 9 draw to create rich full chords)
  • Country Tuning $5.00 (5 Draw Reed raised one semi-tone)
  • Paddy Richter Tuning $5.00 (3 Blow Reed raised one full tone)
  • Natural Minor Tuning - $20.00 (2, 5 and 8 Blow Reeds; 3 and 7 Draw Reeds, lowered one semi-tone)
  • Harmonic Minor Tuning - $20.00 (2, 5 and 8 Blow Reeds; 6 and 10 Draw Reeds, lowered one semi-tone)
