After reading another post where you were having problems making the conversion to chromatic I was kind of worried that it might end up in a dresser drawer.

Nope....not hardly.  I'll be spending the afternoon with this jewel.  Build an A,  and I'll be first in line.

Yeah, I have to say that it's more enjoyable to play than any of my Seydels. My Hohner 260s are still my favorites, but not because they are any better. And the valves seem never to stick, though I have one that buzzes a tiny bit.

Yikes!!    :)    Scary how good this Caberet is.   Just took delivery 40 min ago.   Danny even told me it was to be in my mail box shortly, by text.  And it was.  That's scary.

My first impressions of this fine instrument is that it's beautiful, and plays easier than any of my other three chromatics.   

One of my favorite songs to play is "La Boheme".   I just could't seem to get it right on the other three, not even close to right.   Well, this baby hit it the very first time.  Grand slam homer.

Even my wife said, "Hey, that was really pretty".   

Thank you Danny.

PS:   The other two diatonics you sent me, low F and D, at a cost of $25.00 each, are great.   I will be ordering some other keys from you.   No bad notes.  Gotta be the best bargain out there.

Somehow I just knew you would like it.  8)

Well, EB, you were the one who tempted me.  You devil.

You were right, I do love it.  Awesome.

I like my Caberet as well, but is there any chance Danny, that they would be offering you, a square hole mouth piece for it?

Hi Danny,

Any chance for a Tenor C option for the Caberet?

Easttop's  12-48 Tenor is a really great, high quality Low C harmonica. I don't see me or anyone else being capable of profitably competing with it

That 12-48 Easttop Tenor from Danny is my favorite Harmonica at the moment.
I really like it. Smooth and easy all the way up.

Hey Eric, have you put the wood to the tenor yet?
I think after the first of the year sometime I'm going
to want to get a set of woods for my ET Tenor.
I got to thinking how nice that would look and wound up
convincing myself that it's the thing to do.

Eric's right--despite some claims that the covers don't affect the sound MY wood covers give a muted, softer tone to my Super 64. A whole other
'flavour'. It depends on what chromatic they're installed on. I imagine with full-throated chromatics it would make them mellower (something I'm
very partial to). I haven't yet tried my extra set of wood covers on my Easttop brass (because I really like the black covers)....but might do that soon
just to hear how it sounds.   Go ahead, Ed --make them a [Christmas]/New Year's present for yourself. You deserve it.  ;D

Update:   The Caberet is now my favorite, today.   Yesterday it was my Suzuki SCX 48 C.     

I find I can work the right hand more comfortably on the Caberet,  vs SCX.  Feels smaller.  By golly it is smaller.

New Caberet owner here. Also new to chromatics although I played diatonics a bit over the years (bad Dylan impressions etc).
Just got Caberet yesterday - still trying to get the feel for the harp - I play guitar (mostly electric) for over 40 years. I also play
tenor sax (beginner level). I hope that chromatic harp will be a way to work on jazz solos away from guitar and sax - and maybe
in a few years I will be able to perform with it.
As almost complete beginner - I cannot judge the fine points of Caberet - but it definitely seems like a quantum leap from a 14 hole
Swan I bought online and promptly returned - compared to my diatonic Marine Band Hohners it was rather bad harp. Caberet seems
very beginner friendly - it responds in a predictable way - if I do not get right sounding note immediately it seems easy to adjust your
technique to make it sound better. There is slight "stuffy" feeling in 12th hole and also 7 and/or 8th hole seem to have some slight
resistance (pressure has to exceed certain level for reed to start sounding) but that is very likely just lack of breath control or
incorrect "attack" (if there is such thing) on my part. Overall I am very happy with this purchase - I think it will get a lot of miles
out of it.

The highest notes are always cranky on just about any Chromatic. The best way to treat the top notes is just to play them a lot; they love that! ;)
