“...Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best.”
Same Name, New Voice...
We studied other diatonic harmonicas made by great companies, such as Hohner, Bushman Music, Hering, Lee Oskar, Suzuki, and Seydel. We've tested everything, and came up with, what we believe, to be a superior harmonica.
We also noticed while doing our research, how their asking prices kept going in a less than desirable way - once, twice, maybe even three times a year. I know we're not the only ones asking "why so much?" every time this happens. Unfortunately, the rising costs of production is just something these large manufacturers can't avoid while maintinaing the high quality of their products.
This is where we come in. We're not a large company, we understand the value of a dollar and the need for quality in what we buy. We also need it to last. We had enough luck to get the necessary resources together to produce what we were looking for, and followed it all the way through to bring this harmonica to market ourselves...while keeping it affordable, for you.
We wanted to produce something, not just capable, but easier to play on top of an excessively long lifespan.
This is our goal.. And while offering accessories and spare parts to keep things in optimum condition, we hope to build a feeling of reliablility with this new harmonica line as we expand on our base model here.
We started with a brass reed plate and did away with the old brass reed in favor of a new phosphor bronze set up. Recessed the reed plate into a black ABS comb and finished it off with stainless steel covers.
It's a simple set up without the flash or any gimmicks. Void of any outrageous claims and features, it does what it was designed to do... It shows up, and kicks ass. If it doesn't live up to this simple statement, call us (1-877-602-4277), and we'll fix it.
It is similar to some others, kind of... This one is actually a lot better than those others in it's class.
We built it to compete with the very best harmonicas ever created - We packaged it with you in mind, and won't inflate it's price with its ego - We stand behind it and will fix whatever problem, however unlikely, that you may have with it.
By the way, in case you were wondering... This harmonica was single handedly brought to reality by Doc Belcher, and is hand built in the United States of America, one at a time
