The Maverick Diatonic Harmonica
The Maverick diatonic harmonica, is a brand new instrument developed, built, and released solely by Buckeye Music LLC.
It's our very first sandwich style harmonica built off of a billet aluminum comb that has been anodized in a satin silver finish.
The reed plates are carried over from the Soul's Voice diatonic model, but with the screws relocated to the forward position as to minimize any obstruction to one of the harmonicas other features. As a result, the Maverick and the Soul's Voice are not modular. The reed plate itself has also been nickel plated for added durability.
Buckeye Music only uses phosphor bronze reeds in our harmonicas. Why do we prefer phosphor bronze over brass?
Phosphor bronze (sometimes sold with the shorter name Phos Bronze) is an alloy of copper with 3.5 to 10% of tin and a significant phosphorus content of up to 1%. The phosphorus is added as deoxidizing agent during melting.
These alloys are notable for their toughness, strength, low coefficient of friction, and fine grain.
The cover plate has been the reason for most of the delay in getting this thing put together. It was a bit challenging. But, it's finally finished and ready to go. It features a vent on either side, and a wide open back.
With all the great attributes and individual characteristics from several fantastic harmonica models over the years, we've combined what we feel are some of the best of them together in an affordable package.
This thing promises to be very strong and very loud.
Maverick, just like the Soul's Voice is backed by a one year warranty guaranteeing it free of defects and failure within that time period through normal and non-abusive play. We assemble and inspect each one before they leave our house to ensure its quality.
