SUZUKI SUB 30’S

Using parts and optimized upgrade technology obtained from some of the cutting edge Sub 30 Aux reed pioneers (Brendan Power, Richard Sleigh, and Tom Halchak, among others), I am now able to offer two different models of this high end Sub 30 Ultra Bend, as an optimized, custom, fully chromatic diatonic Harmonica.   For more information on the history of the auxiliary reed harmonicas Sub 30 check out these  links:

SUB 30 LEGACY VERSION

(Old School- “Tin Sandwich Design”):

This is the legacy “Tin Sandwich” Design of the customized Sub 30 which utilizes a custom BMH / Brendan Power comb, External Valve Plates, Full custom reed work, Suzuki Manji cover plates, tuning and setup of the auxiliary reeds.  The current evolution of this model is reflected in the MB 30 and MB 30 RS based on the Marine Band platform.  For some players the closer proximity of the reeds in the “Tin Sandwich” design allows for a quicker response on the reeds.
