Ready-to-Go Double Reed Plate Manji, Key of Low C, Aluminum comb
Double Reed Plate Suzuki Manji
Key of Low C
Black Anodized Aluminum Comb
A Blue Moon Double Reed Plate Manji harmonica begins with a brand new a Suzuki Manji. 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. The Low Tuned Manji also includes a larger bottom cover plate which eliminated reed rattle on the 1, 2, 3 draw notes.
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
- Covers opened in the back
- Gaps adjusted for optimum response
- Reed profiles checked and shaped if necessary
- Tuned to Modern Compromise Temperament @ A=442Hz
Our Standard Blues Set-up is the harmonica of choice for the 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 reed work required to produce such a harmonica.
