The J.A. Custom Discovery 48 Top of the line has incredible response and tone. It features the most extensive and advanced reed work possible. Every reed responds to the same small air pressure and the tuning lasts much longer than on a stock harmonica. The slide and mouthpiece is upgraded to a 3 part mechanism, which gives the player much better response and dynamics. The harmonica is assembled with screws instead of nails for easier maintenance. The valves are modified for a much smoother action.
When Hohner punches out reeds and reed plates, it creates burrs around the edges. To achieve the best performance from a harmonica these burrs needs to be removed, therefore all valves and reeds are removed, the underside of the reeds and reed plates are then flat sanded. Every reed is re- profiled for a smoother playability. Reed slots are modified and embossed, finally every reed is re-attached using screws.
