Basic Custom Harmonica
My custom harmonicas are beautiful but not flashy. The cost reflects the hours of meticulous work on all parts of the instrument, especially the reeds, to provide deep tone and unmatched responsiveness.
- Special 20
- Marine Band Deluxe or Crossover
- Golden Melody
My Basic custom is a one-size-fits-all instrument. Its tailoring focuses on second position playing.
Play it soft to loud. This instrument has a much wider dynamic range than a stock harmonica.
This harmonica packs a lot of power. It very easy to control and bend.
Standard features include:
- Marine Band Deluxe/Crossover or Golden Melody using my custom Dark comb™
- Special 20 or Rocket using upgraded stock ABS comb
- Covers fashioned with two stainless steel screws in the front
- Marine Band choice of cover plates (Deluxe, Crossover, Rocket, Rocket AMP, Rocket Low)
- High-performance work done to every aspect of the instrument, including sympathetic reed work™ and high-precision Analog Strobe tuning.

- Free shipping to Canada and USA
- International shipping - please contact. Expect up to $25 extra for Europe and up to $75 extra for tracked shipping to other countries.
Can this harmonica play overblows "straight on"?
Yes. Overblows and overdraws can be played as passing notes using slightly more breath than regular 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 my Overbend Custom.
