Think of it as the harmonica with a Whammy Bar! The TurboSlide is custom made from the fabulous Seydel Session Steel (Silver) featuring our patent-pending magnetic slide system that allows the player to bend either one or all the notes at once. With up to one whole step of bending power it’s like having both a diatonic and chromatic harmonica in one. But wait, there's more! The TurboSlide Session Steel also lets you introduce your very own tremolo so you can achieve the unique sound of a Hammond organ. The possibilities are endless! It is a genius design for an already amazing harmonica.
*You can download the “TurboSlide Session Steel User Guide” from our User Guides section under the Resources Tab.
**The Turboslide is custom and requires time to make before we ship. Please allow 2-3 weeks for all custom harmonicas. We do not charge until shipment.
What's A PowerBender?
The PowerBender tuning builds on the best parts of the traditional Richter Tuning, while altering the scale to make the real juicy and important notes much easier to obtain throughout the whole three octave range. Same familiar breathing pattern in the upper-middle registers. All draw notes bend everywhere, holes 1-10! On the un-valved version you can overblow every hole 1-10, for full chromatic playing. Overdraws and blow bends are no longer possible or needed on a PowerBender - they are replaced with simple draw bends. On the half-valved version, a mix of normal draw bends and valved blow bends gives full chromaticism. Top octave easy to play (intuitive) as many familiar phrasings can be adopted from the bottom octaves Easy to play in the common positions: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 11th, and 12th
You've got nothing to lose... there's always a 30-day satisfaction guarantee!
