All my custom harmonicas are Richter tuned to 441hz with a compromised temperament. However, I can accommodate your preference for an alternate temperament or tuning. Most players are happy with my compromised temperament.
The Tuning in Cents
The standard case is made from high quality leather with laser engraved logo and key.
The optional artisanal case is CNC milled from the finest jatoba wood and fastens with neodymium magnets. The case is laser engraved with logo and your name between the magnets. Then it's finally vacuum infused with linseed oil for water resistance.
