In October only: the #harmonica_of_the_month_10:

SESSION STEEL - DiMiNiShEd LF# ...play chromatically in 12 keys on a single instrument!

Diminished is actually the name of a chord and a scale. For example the diminished chord in C contains the notes: C, Eb, Gb (and A). The scale contains C, D, Eb, F, Gb, Ab, A and B.

The Diminished-Tuning for diatonic harmonicas has the same symmetrical order of notes. This layout makes it possible to reach all chromatic notes with simple semi-tone draw bendings alone - not too difficult to learn!

> find out more and listen to the sound examples played by Alfred Hirsch


Check out the Half-Valved Diatonics from the PT Gazell-Series

The valves are put on the draw plate of 1-6 and on blow plate of 7-10. This leads to better air-tightness of the instrument - bending notes are still playable...but this is not everything!

In addition the player can get the blow-bending notes in holes 1-6 blow and the draw bendings in 7-10!! So as the result all notes of the chromatic scale become available without overblowing!
