Double Reed Plate Manji

Black Anodized Aluminum Comb
The Blue Moon Double Reed Manji is built with one of our CNC Milled Combs and Manji Reed Plates & Covers. Combs are available in Brass, DuPont™ Corian®, Aircraft Grade (6061) Aluminum, Phenolic Resin or Fancy Acrylic. We then add an extra plate (essentially a reed plate without reeds). 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 Rocket 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.
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
- Gaps adjusted for optimum response
- Reed profiles checked and shaped if necessary
- Tuned to Modern Compromise Temperament @ A=442Hz (alternate tunings available upon request)
- Low Tuned Manjis feature an oversized bottom cover to eliminate reed strike
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).
