Hohner will be releasing a new line of harmonicas this summer. The word is it contains new digital technology that Hohner has been working on for several years now and has begun mass production. The new harmonica allows you to control vibrato, trills, and even has a delay that is controlled by the microprocessor in the comb. These settings are accessible by a couple of buttons that are countersunk into the front of the comb with an adjoining display. I don't know the price point yet. Hohner is going to make an announcement in the next couple of weeks.

Seydel has been working on this technology for years. Seydel managed to make it work in a beechwood comb, so the microprocessor has a woody tone.

I had a button installed on my suziki promaster - when pressed - makes green flying monkeys shoot out of my ass. BTW - all of the monkeys are playing promasters too. It's like getting 12-17 harmonicas for the price of one!!! (you can never control how many monkeys fly out of your ass).

They are working on getting the monkeys to have buttons on their harmonicas too so that you may have what they call "an infinite monkey ass progression." Most modern astrophysicits agree, "it might destroy the universe, or be totally awesome!"

Hello from an old newbie to Harmonica Space.

I'm a member of Harp-L list, and am looking for a way to publish a study I recently made on the properties of the harmonica cover.

There's lots of pics and text, I'm thinking that also a few sound examples would make it more understandable

Please, what is the procedure?
