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?

Here is another unique customizer
The ergo harmonica kind of looks like a metal turbo lid. I like the little harp satchels they sell
for me this stuff is all post-win-the-lotto.
Thanks for the link. Sent for a quote.
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!
