Mission StatementFor most of their history all diatonic single-reed harmonicas had only two reeds per cell: a blow and a draw. X-Reed harps add extra lower-pitched reeds in the chamber that are passive under normal playing, but activate when the bend embouchure is initiated to give more soulful bending possibilities to the harmonica.
X-Reed harmonicas have emerged onto the market only recently, and come in two types: triple-reed (one x-reed plus two active reeds per cell) and quad-reed (two x-reeds plus two active reeds). Because they are so new, their development and applications are still in the early stages. But I believe they have massive potential, and this website is all about offering specialist X-Reed harps to help early adopters of these exciting, super-expressive types realise new musical possibilities.
