"Proudly Serving the Harmonica Community Since 2008"
Customized Harmonicas by Chris
harps I got from Chris really blew me away. They are extremely
responsive harmonicas, for the bends, overblows and overdraws as well.
Chris' attention to detail ,tuning and set up is apparent.... Oh yeah,
they're pretty nice to look at as well." - Sandy WeltmanDavid Covill
"It is hard to believe you finished these two harps in a little more than one
month. The first thing I notice is how responsive the harps are. I have always
worked on tone and breath control But I can get a full rich tone with even 30%
less breath than normal and still have good volume, which really makes these
harps a joy to play. Absolutely every blow, draw, bend over blow and over draw
is where it should be and extremely controllable and the extra weight is really
nice and they look great. This first week I will only play shuffle rhythms and
single notes, the second week I will start bending and the third I will begin
overblowing after that the gates are open. I know it sounds like a bit of over
kill but I haven't blown a reed plate in well over a year.
You can expect me to order again in the near future. Your craftsmanship is
with no doubt shown in your technical skill. Thanks so much for two outstanding
"I received my harp today and it is superb..I could not be happier..
Thank you so much for your beautiful workmanship..I am sure this harp
will be with me for a long long time.. best regards Mike"
Thought I'd drop you a note to let you know my impression of the
harmonicas I bought from you and your style of business.
I really appreciate your website because it provides tons of
all the info a person needs to place an order, you make it easy...and
after placing the order I really appreciate your quick shipping and
your high level of customer communication....and I really appreciate
your modest mailing fees......very professional!
After receiving the 2 harps I ordered, both with stainless combs, I
was taken with the highly polished edges of the combs, they are so
smooth and beautifully fitted to the reedplates which makes playing
them easy on my mouth and tongue! Also I like the shape
the pieces of the comb between holes. they're very slightly rounded
from one hole to the adjacent one and are ever so slightly raised above
the edge of the reedplates so they are easy on my mouth and tongue
making it easier to move from one note to the next.....I think you've
made an improvement over the original in that portion of the comb
design.....however, I'm no expert;o)
One thing that surprised me was how much I like their heavier
weight compared with plastic or wooden combed harps. They
solid... and substantial. and they do sound slightly
the same reedplates on a plastic comb....I don't know if it's because
they're more air tight or if my mouth and tongue more easily conform to
the shape of the between hole portions of the comb or if it's something
else, such as my mind playing tricks on me;o) Whatever the
like the way they sound.
Thanks for your fine design and craftsmanship......I really
appreciate it! I find it's a delight to play the 'Chris
I received it today..........It
is a work of art!! very beautiful work. nice and solid, good
have been messin' around with it in the garage for the last hour or so.
I will take it out this Thursday night for a Live situation.....I would
be happy to testify!"
that Chris made for me has the most clean sound and workable
action I have ever had. Heavier than most, I find it wonderful to play
and you can really notice the difference. I am a relative beginer at
playing, however found I can get some great sounds from my harp that I
thought would take a significant amount of time to achieve.
"Hi Chris !
I just received my harp today and I was very
impressed by the quality of your work. The sound is very different from
the original in the good way of course ! The design is beautiful and
And I would like to thank you for the good customer
contact service that you done. I hope it is understandable. Continue
that way !
I received my comb today and wanted to give my thoughts on
First of all, I can tell from the pictures that you do beautiful work
and although the pictures on your site are well-done, there is nothing
like holding it in one's hand. It is heavy and the polish alomg with
the craftsmanship is unmatched. My wish and hope for you is that
tons and tons of more business because I selfishly want you to stay
around so that I can continue to do business with you. Your
communication was superb during our business transaction and from
care that you took in creating my stainless steel comb also shows me
your respect and love for the harmonica, which I appreciate more than
anything. The harmonica is often looked at as not a 'real' instrument
but now with the professional look and feel of my comb, I am sure that
it will catch the eyes of many. You have done your part and now it is
up to me to continue to keep that attention with my playing. I
played it yet because I have to go home tonight and put it all together
and I can't wait to get it done. Again, thank you Chris and you will
hear from me again when it's time for me to order and replace my other
keys of the harmonica. Just please, don't go anywhere! You're awesome!
