Suzuki Overdrive harmonica – review and tips

In this video, I review the unique suzuki overdrive harmonica, and give you some tips for how to make the most out of it’s innovative design. Sorry that the video ends rather abruptly(!) – I apparently ran out of disk space on my phone! 🙂 All in all, I’m happy to own this harp, but I wouldn’t buy another. I see it mainly as a learning/practice tool, rather than a practical solution to the overbend technique. It’s a fine quality instrument, and perhaps future refinements to the design will make it more practical to play in real performance situations.

So, you mean you snip-snapped out a few dividers that the comb has between and below the cover plate holes on the low end?

Hi! After watching your video I also tried to buy overblow harp. (on the Amazon) This is my first trial:

Great review, although I could never see myself using this harp in concert. I don’t think I would have the coordination to even hold it – LOL    –   FLOYD

Muito bom! Poderia me tirar uma dúvida? Com uma overdrive posso tirar facilmente a escala cromática completa ou ainda fica incompleta ou difícil de ser executada? Vc indica essa gaita? Ela pode ser usada no lugar de uma cromática tranquilamente?! Obrigado! (from Brazil)
