  • Tuned to Equal 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)
