Blue Moon Videos
On this page you will find a variety of videos which show how our combs are made. In additon you will find endorsements and demonstrations by some prominent professional harmonica players.
Several examples of some of the great harmonicas and parts I've been using the past few years from Tom Halchak and Blue Moon
D harmonica in 3rd position (kinda) Key of Em. Harmonica is a Suzuki Manji by Tom Halchak at Blue Moon Harmonicas (no tweaks or customization at all http://www.bluemoonharmonicas.com .... Amp is a Harp Gear HG 50 through Lone Wolf effects and a Stigtronics chorus and a Maxon auto Wah. Mic by Greg Huemann http://www.blowsmeaway.com I finally watched the Jaco Documentary and then sat down inspired and emotional and had to do something.
Jason played this song on a Suzuki harmonica that I built for him. It is a combination of components. At the core is a set of Suzuki Fabulous Reed Plates which have been flat sanded, tuned and gapped - nothing more. The comb is a prototype Teflon comb. That's right - pure Teflon. And I used Manji covers. The modular design of the Suzuki components allows me to mix and match combs, reed plates and covers to create some interesting combinations.
JD Taylor is the front man for Little Boys Blue. He is a monster harp player. He's been wondering about the Double Reed Plate Special 20s that I build so I sent him one. Here's JD showing it off. If are wondering whether or not you can overblow and overdraw on Double Reed Plate harps, this video will answer those questions.
Jason Ricci recorded this awesome testimonial for Blue moon at SPAH 2015. He is a great guy to work with and a fantastic partner.

Ronnie Shellist is a great friend of Blue Moon Harmonica. In this video he shows off his Blue Moon Double Reed Plate Special 20 with a Brass Comb.
This video shows four Fancy Acrylic Seydel 1847 combs being CNC Milled.
This is a very nice video of JD Taylor talking about two harps he built with some custom Blue Moon combs he ordered. I had no idea who he was when he placed his order and the next thing I knew, he posted a video on my Facebook Timeline. I was floored. What a great testimonial! Thanks' JD.
Jackson Kincheloe is the harmonica player for Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds. This is a high powered funkadelic rock band that is playing about 200+ gigs a year.
