Why overall 8/10 score for silverstar?
12 November 2017
Purchased it after throughgoing many harmonicas and have been using it for 2 weeks:
- Packaging by amazon was great.
- This small size (10 x 3 x 2.5 cm) richter tuned harmonica succeds in giving excellent response with great sound.
- What is Richter tuned? : Single note having undivided channel openings, which allows the airflow to pass over both blow and draw reeds simultaneously enables to produce bluesy wailing sound by bending - i.e. by lowering the pitch of certain notes.
- Overblowing produces the missing chromatic notes lying in between the notes of the major scale 'c'.
-Need to spare more air for upmark sound.
-If just beginning to learn bending, you can use it before wasting bucks on expensive ones.
-cannot expect it to go for too long with same sound quality.
In short, Go for it if you want good sound in minimum bucks. Silver star can play pop & rock, folk, speciality while blues band will only be able to play blues.
If budget is more go for blue harps, special 20 or crossover.
