I play mostly Suzuki valved promasters harps and want to get a set of Gold Promasters.
As far as I see they're not being made anymore and stores who have them sell them for discounted prices.
Which seems like a good moment to buy :)

The thing is, I managed to find C,G,D,A,F but still struggling with finding Bb for some reasonable price.
Any idea who could have them in stock? Preferably newer stock, preferably in Europe.

The reed plates are RP-350V, you can always buy them separately and install them into the others.
The combs are like the Hammond, so you could even craft your own if you could find the cover plates.

Thanks Gnarly,

I didn't think about Hammond' comb - they do look similar except there's no key and no 'suzuki' writings on hammonds.

Something to think about I guess.

I like the fact that many parts are interchangeable on the Suzuki models.
I have several “HamManji” harps, ProMaster plates with a Manji combs.

Looks like he’s only got them in A.

yes, Ron only has an A.

harmonicaland.com has two in Bb, I ordered one from them but when it arrived it was looking weird, gold on the covers damaged, gold on the screws damaged.
Also, it has riveted reeds which I've never seen on Promasters - I guess it's very old stock.
So I had to send it back.

I have one set of the Gold ProMaster covers and tons of Manji Reed Plates, which will fit. Not exactly what you are looking for but it would work just fine.

Thanks Tom

I can actually buy gold harmonica in another key to get covers, and I can get the reedplates separately, the only thing I cannot find now is proper Bb comb
And I would like it to be proper.

What do you mean by "Proper Bb comb"?

sorry, wasn't clear enough - I meant the comb with Bb markings from Suzuki
Anyway, I ended up ordering another key of harmonica and I'll just replace the reedplates
