Hi there, was wondering if any of you have tried one out & what your thoughts are. I'm probably gonna order one up we play a lot rock songs & I'm high register challenged to say the least !
Thanks
Lou

I have only had a look at the layout. From memory I think it kind of replicates the low end layout just in the higher octave? I can’t remember whether it doubles up on a note or discards one. For that matter, maybe I just don’t remember much!
I thought it looked a possibility but also I like the top end as it is and high draw bends I just don’t know what I think. Would have to try it out I guess, with intent. Will always looks to be really hammering the harp but looks can be deceiving. I don’t know it’s possible to play as well as he does and play as hard as he appears to.

This site says:
"Holes one to five are exactly the same as standard tuning. Holes six, seven and eight are the same as holes two, three and four (just an octave higher). Hole nine is the same as hole two (two octaves higher) and the reeds in hole ten are reversed (so that what was a blow bend is now a draw bend)."
Haven't built one yet . . .

So that's:
C E G C E E G C E A
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
D G B D F G B D G C

I think . . .
Edited for accuracy
