 Be among the first in the world to order the amazing ChromaBender, a brand new all-bending harp invented by X-Reed Harmonicas, and only available to buy here. The ChromaBender has the outward appearance of a chromatic but sounds like a diatonic! Its parts and standard Solo tuning come from the chromatic, so chrom players can play it straight away. But the sound and playability is like that of a 10 hole blues harp! Instead of a slider, the ChromaBender uses internal x-reeds and simple draw/blow bending to give you buckets of soul - plus full, easy chromatic scales over three octaves.

CURRENT STATUS

Though our MB30 and MB30S took the small 10 hole x-reed type harp to a new level, they were really tough to make! The nesting lower reedplates required some very intricate milling, quite aside from the complex comb and valving. That meant the harp was very time-consuming to make and therefore expensive. After we shipped the initial 50 units we decided not to release a new batch of harps until we improve our processes considerably. Our aim is to make an affordable, great-playing harp as good as the MB30 available in all 12 keys, and we are still exploring a wide range of state of the art technologies, designs, materials for OVPs, valves, combs, reeds and reedplates to that end. It's not simple, and it won't be rushed. We don't have a release date yet, but will announce on the harmonica forums when the new version is ready.

The Initial Signed and Numbered Edition of 50 MB30 and MB30-S harps sold out, and we have received great reviews from our customers.

X-Reed MB30/MB30-S

This amazing new harmonica won't break the bank! We are offering it for just £75 (about USD$97) including International Tracked Postage. That's very little to spend to get yourself an incredible new harmonica sound using your existing note-bending skills. It makes ANY melody sound great - try it and see for yourself!
