The Full Custom packs a lot of power. It's a responsive harp that is loud without needing a lot of effort. It’s extremely easy and satisfying to play.
This harp enables you to play from pp (pianissimo - very soft) to ff (fortissimo - very loud) and everything in between - all with very little breath.
Can this harmonica play overblows "straight on"? Overblows and overdraws can be played as passing notes but this harp is not specialised for overbends. If you want easy playing overbends or to sustain or use vibrato with overbends, I recommend an Overbend Custom.
