Basic

reed work


The Basic reed work is like it sounds like, it's basic. It is better than a stock harmonica, but its far from the Master reed work (which we recommend). Bends are not as leaky (diatonic) and the tuning is better. The overall response in regular blow/draw notes is improved and the harmonica is louder than a stock harmonica.

  • Better tuning than stock
  • Bends are easier than on a stock harmonica (diatonic)
  • Overall response is better
  • Louder than a stock harmonica

Technical specification


Below you will find some of the technical specifications for the Basic reed work.

Reed plate (diatonic)

The draw reed plate is flat sanded to ensure better airtightness.

Tuning

Chromatic harmonicas are tuned to Equal temperament and Diatonic harmonicas are tuned to my own type of compromised tuning, see chart below.

Reeds

Reed curvatures are adjusted and corrected.

Tuning


All my custom diatonic harmonicas are Richter tuned to 442hz with a compromised temperament. However, I can accommodate your preference for an alternate temperament or tuning. Most players are happy with my compromised temperament
