This warranty applies to my Basic, Full and Overbend custom harmonicas.

Warranty includes one reed replaced for free within the first 30 days of reception. Reed replacement service is $10 per reed for the next 11 months after the free 30-day period. Customer pays for shipping. After 12 month warranty period, regular service charges apply. My custom harps get lifetime service priority which means I attend to them as soon as I can once I receive them.
It is acceptable to take apart your custom harmonica for regular cleaning. Any other work to the instrument will likely void the warranty. The reeds and reed plates are set with precision. Installing a different comb than the one provided or that I have not flattened myself will void the warranty because this will warp the reed plates.

"The bends are mind blowing and so precise." / "Les bends sont hallucinants et tellement précis." - Martin, Québec, Canada

"They are wonderful! The tone is fat and smooth and the notes bend easily. I found myself playing runs I had never played before as I was fooling around and getting acquainted with the harp. I feel very comfortable playing it and I appreciate your correspondence concerning my playing style, breath force, etc. You were able to dial the harmonica in perfectly based on that information." - Michael, USA

"I must say that it is truly astonishing and this harmonica is indeed a subtle and precise musical instrument; probably the best I have ever acquired in recent years." - Jean-Luc, France

"Great response across the entire instrument and just a joy to play." - Matt, Illinois, USA

"I'm delighted with it. It has that slightly raspy sound I was seeking." - Ian, United Kingdom

Basic Custom

My Basic custom is a pro-grade harp that is tailored for second position playing.

This harp offers fantastic response. It's ideal for players who require a great instrument but feel that their playing style may not make use of everything a full custom harp has to offer. Overblows on holes 4,5 and 6 are playable as passing notes.

My Basic Custom harp is "one-size-fits-all".

Full Custom

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.

Expect superb control over all blow and draw bends needed for playing in multiple positions. Overblows on holes 4,5 and 6 are available as passing notes.

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.

Overbend Custom

This harmonica features overblows and overdraws that are sustainable and bendable using regular breath force. Blow notes, draw notes, bends and overblows/overdraws all play with the same breath force; the overblows do not need any extra breath to play than any other notes.

For most players, the enhanced control of an Overblow harp allows for expression you
can't experience from any other harmonica.

This harp enables you to play from ppp (pianississimo - very very soft) to fff (fortississimo - very very loud) and everything in between - all with very little breath.

NRW Harmonica™

Reconstructed - No Reed Work. A Reconstructed NRW harmonica™ is not a custom harmonica because it does not feature high-performance reed work.

Whereas a custom harmonica does most of the work for you and is played with little effort, an NRW harmonica™ is played with regular breath force. As such it is the best choice for players who cannot use breath control.

Every player secretly hopes to "win the lottery" and get a "really good one" when they buy a new stock (non-customized) harp from the music store.

A Reconstructed NRW harp™ exceeds that expectation because attention is paid to every detail of its foundation as it is rebuilt. But it does not feature custom reed work (reed shaping). It aims to be powerful, consistent from top to bottom and in perfect tune.

My Reconstructed NRW harmonicas™ are CAD$150 to $175.
