1/ Select a comb material for your Custom harmonica :
Acrylic: A good go-to comb durable with a nice round sound
Aluminum: Anodized aluminum also available in brushed (matte) finish. Fantastic look and pure sound.
Brass: Very heavy, deeper and rounder tone impressive resonance. Electro-nickel plated finish.
Wood: Maple or Walnut. Light and loud, Organic feel and sound. Add your text on the back (optional) for an even more customized harmonica.
2/ Choose your cover type and material :
Aluminum: Anodized aluminum mix and match your comb color.
New cover design by David Herzhaft with no gaps on the sides for optimum air-tightness, thicker cover material and Wave shape for maximum Projection
Brass: Same as Aluminum but electro-nickel plated. Brass is very heavy compare to aluminum so it's a good way to go if you're looking for a deeper tone, more resonance and something heavier to hold.
Wood: New cover design by David Herzhaft this shape differs from Aluminum and brass covers. No air gap on the sides for maximum air-tightness, fantastic sound and tone. Round shape on the mouthpiece to make it as smooth as possible.
3/ Pick a Reed setup :
Classic harmonica: This is recommended for beginners and intermediate players and for players of all levels who mostly play Folk and Blues. We do a classic manual reed adjustment in our US workshop to optimize the reed response in typical playing situations.
Ultimate harmonica: This setup involves several additional steps of manual reedwork done in our US workshop that makes the harmonica more airtight, more responsive and fully optimized for overblows. This setup is recommended for any style of music : Jazz, Blues, Country, Classical, Folk, Reggae, Funk, Rock … mostly for advanced and pro players who will no doubt enjoy the extra manual individual reed fine tuning.

We use the best material and manufacturing process available for our Custom shop harmonicas to offer you the best quality harp and a unique design. Our comb is CNC milled and we use quality phosphore bronze reeds that are loud and very responsive. The covers use a proprietary design created by David Herzhaft . The shape and thickness of the covers is much better than standard harmonicas because our covers allow no air to escape on the side and focus all the sound towards the audience. The specific shape is optimized for better projection and the thickness of the harmonica cover offers a richer tone.
