Fits the following harps:
Suzuki Manji, Promaster, Suzuki Olive.
- Dabell Contender
- Dabell Noble
- Suzuki HarpMaster, BluesMaster (*)
- Bushman Delta Frost(*)
The stock Manji comb is slightly smaller than the reed plates. My comb is a hair bigger than the plates so that the harp is more comfortable to hold.
* Note: For best overall performance, don't change the comb of a HarpMaster or BluesMaster harmonica. I recommend using the stock ABS comb and work to get better performance by using The Reed Plate Claws™ to straighten reed plates. However, some hobbyists like to experiment with the tonal qualities of switching from an ABS "recessed" comb to a solid surface "sandwich-type" comb and these combs will work with a little help.
HarpMaster and BluesMaster harmonica reed plates were designed to be used with a recessed comb. These reed plates do not have a groove into which the coverplate can lock in. Although you can install these reed plates onto a "sandwich-type" comb, you may experience a loss of airtightness if the coverplates become bent. You will find some useful tip on converting these harmonicas here. (Sandwich-type harmonica tips and tricks)
Older versions of the Bushman Delta Frost used Harpmaster reed plates. The current reed plates are of lesser quality and are usually warped. Instead of trying to improve them with a comb upgrade, I suggest straightening the reed plates. Please see The F tool™.
More information and instructions for installing my combs are found on the Combs page.
