Hello folks!
I'm Zvika from Israel,
I joined after many debates with myself whether I alert the webmaster about the lack of security before I join or after - I'm in the PHP world and security is a strong side of our offering (been working with the commercial company behind PHP for more than a decade, so its hard-coded).

My harmonica background starts with high-school first chinese harp, played oh-suzana and its friends, got my 3 Hohners after army duty and played a bit here and there in first position boring scales (C major and harmonic minor, which together BTW - creates a fine Czardas - try it). I also got me a Hohner 260, which is with me for 25+ years, and now fancy a new comb I ordered and set-up from Hohner headquarters.

Since a year now I play Blues, Irish and lots of Israeli music, and starting to slide into more exotic music genres and scales.
I got in this period about 50+ harps, mostly from China but some German and Japanese as well, and retuned about 30% of them to the most common tunings you can find on overblow.com.

I also own 2 chromatic 10, one lousy 12 and one EastTop chromatic 10 which I converted to Irish (D scale up and down, parted by one scale level, meaning - bottom is C with tuned C# and F#, top is D tuned from the original C# scale - those where 27 hard changes to a single 40 reed harp, which gave surprising results playing Irish and Folk, but, lousy harp so... will do this again for sure on a REAL chromatic).

Lately I'm trying out Brendan Power specialty harps, been fun so far, but it even encourages me more to tweak my harps better and come up with new ideas for new harmonica types and designs - trying to build me a workshop to make that stuff happen from paper to reality.

That's all folks,
happy harpin and chatting
