Some of you may already know about this, but it was a surprise to me.

Has anyone ever purchased one of these or even heard of them?

The ergo harmonica kind of looks like a metal turbo lid. I like the little harp satchels they sell

Those sidevents shaped like whales are the most awesome thing I have ever seen.

I had to add the picture so others could see for themselves. Still very expensive.

Still waiting for a reply. Not the way to sell stuff.

I just ordered 12 of them with stainless plates: Ooops! That was a dream. Fun link. d

Well Arnd got back; a stainless steel comb, his special covers, mini-Steve Baker tuning and overblow setup is 260 Euros plus shipping.

Sounds worth a punt to me.

Perhaps he is using 1847 plates???

I still would want one if I could afford it.

Here is a thought...

Get Brad Harrison (Harrison Harmonicas) and Ergo Harmonica to join forces and produce a Production model of the Ergo which would in-turn lower the price.

Well he wants a bank transfer up front. 268 Euros is pretty much 250GBP. Up front? With a three month wait? Hmmm.

That is really expensive without even knowing how they sound and feel.

Are you going to do it?

When I think what else (specially harp-wise) I could spend 268 Euros on, I think not, and even if his harps play like magic, they'd really only be unplayable collectors' items. That's a full set of Hohners after all. But direct bank transfer is the deal breaker. PayPal and I probably wouldn't have thought twice - I mean, it isn't real money is it:)

It's a shame that there is a potential for these harps to possibly change the way the world thinks about harmonica but instead they merely become a collectors items for the wealthy of us harmonica players. If the designed was patented and a contract was made with one of the major manufactures, he would end up withresidual income for the rest of his life and his children.

I need to ask him about his reeds and plates - if they're stock, then it doesn't matter how fancy the comb or covers are, it'll play like a stock harp. Waiting on Harrisons anyway. I guess if all harps cost $200 the world would think differently about them!
