Andrew's harmonicas

Custom Harmonicas:

I customize diatonic harmonicas to be remarkably responsive, have amazing tone and tuning and be adjusted to your playing style. I offer superior all-purpose harmonicas which have loud, rich tone and allow easy bending of notes.

I also offer harps specialised for overbending which feature stable, expressive, bendable and sustainable overblows and overdraws. Overbends allow extra notes to be played on a diatonic harmonica providing the full chromatic scale on a standard-tuned diatonic harmonica.

My custom harps are perfect for anyone from beginners to seasoned performers who need a durable and professional grade instrument.

Custom Harmonica Combs:

I offer world-class combs made for demanding players. My Dark combs™ are measurably better than factory-made combs. Dark combs™ are made from environmentally-responsible materials. They are beautiful, durable, airtight, waterproof and comfortable to play.

My combs allow for a much better air seal than most stock combs. A hermetic seal between all components will offer more control and power to connect with the instrument's full potential.

My combs are made to precision specifications using my CNC-mill. They are flattened by hand to a tolerance of .000025" per 6" (25 millionths of an inch) to ensure optimal performance, increased power and control.

These combs are not mass-produced. Each comb is promptly made to order. This improves the quality of the final product and reduces production costs.
