Harmonica set - CLASSIC - Wilde Minor Tuning - ideal for Rock in minor keys

The special tuning Wilde Minor Tuning is directly derived from the Wilde Rock Tuning. Like the latter, the Wilde Minor Tuning enables the fluent playing of hard rock and blues rock licks, dedicated to minor-heavy pieces of music. The Wilde Minor Tuning Set consists of five 1847 CLASSIC instruments in the keys of Cm, Dm, Em, Gm and Am (label in 2nd position).

The key designation describes the root note of the minor key played in 2nd position (more details, see below).

It comes with the proven gig bag/belt pouch that fits six harmonicas!

 

 

Features of the 1847 CLASSIC

• full and loud, overtone-rich sound and extremely fast tone-response due to stainless steel reeds

• very long durability - even when extremely powerfully played; stainless steel reeds and stainless steel rivets

• less air-loss due to fine-cut reedplates; optimized flatness and extremely small tolerances between reed and reedplate

• friendly to beards and lips; coverplates with rounded edges, no cuts at the moutpiece hand ergonomically built hole openings and rounded dividers

• the overtone-rich sound can spread out undampened, covers made of extra strong stainless steel sheet (0.4mm), opened wide at the back and crimped and therefore a good stability and rounded edges; special Will Wilde Logo on the upper cover plate

• moisture-proof, swelling-free maple comb, sealed with multiple layers of food-safe finish

 

Both WILDE TUNINGS in detail:

Holes one to five are unchanged compared to the Richter tuning. Holes six, seven and eight have the same tones as those in chambers two, three and four (one octave higher). Hole 9 has the same construction as hole 2 (two octaves higher) and in hole 10 the blow and draw notes have been swapped compared to Richter tuning, so that the expressive bending in 10 is now a draw bending! This setup makes playing the minor pentatonic and the blues scale much easier: you don't need overblows/overdraws to reach the minor third and the diminished fifth in the upper octave. These notes are now easily playable draw bends.

In Wilde Minor Tuning, the note arrangement is the same, but all thirds of the blow and draw chords are tuned one semi-tone lower than in the major version (2,5,6 & 9 blow and 3 & 7 draw). As with all SEYDEL harmonicas tuned in Natural Minor, the key abel designation of the minor variant is based on the fundamental of the "Natural Minor" scale to be played in channel 2 draw (2nd position):
