After receiving many requests for the Lucky 13 in PowerBender and PowerDraw tunings, I decided to bite the bullet and order a substantial batch of them to be specially made at the Easttop factory. They are now in stock and available to order! PowerBender and PowerDraw Lucky 13s come in all twelve keys, a first for these increasingly popular tunings. These alt-tuned Lucky 13s have chromed coverplates including another requested feature: closed ends. This gives them a a different look/mouth-feel and a mellower tone than the stock Richter model with black side-vented covers. They will give all Lucky 13 players a chance to customise their harps, as of course the two types of coverplates will be interchangeable.
 
N.b. The photos have open-side covers. The new harps will have chromed covers with closed ends. 
 
POWER-DRAW
 
 
This is a great tuning for traditional blues harp players, because it retains ALL the familiar Richter scale in hole 1-6. Holes 7-10 are the same as PowerBender tuning, with the ability to draw-bend every note! The high draw bends are the same notes you can bend lower down the harp, which makes them great for cross-harp Blues style. PowerDraw is very easy to learn and gives good tongue-block double-stops for most of the range, plus overblows on every hole. Now on the Lucky 13 you have all that PLUS the extra low octave, in all 12 keys!
 
POWER-BENDER
 
PowerBender is a more radical departure from standard Richter, but it's becoming increasingly popular among players who like to jazz up their playing with easy draw-bending technique. My personal favourite, it gives you more useful draw bends throughout the range to make chromatic runs simple and intuitive. Great for switching positions, PowerBender allows you to play in 11 keys with draw bends alone (as shown in this video). Overblows are available on every hole, so it can be played fully chromatically. And the Lucky 13 version has that extra grunty low octave added on, in all 12 keys. Heaven in a blues harp!

Guarantees & Repairs
If for any reason you find fault with an item after receiving it, you must inform me in the first week of ownership. Email me if it is concerning a harmonica, and please attach an MP3 sound clip and/or photo of the issue you're experiencing.
 
If the problem can't be fixed by email or phone, the harmonica or other item must be returned by you in as-new condition no later than 3 weeks after it was received. Once I receive it I will examine the reported issue. If there is indeed a problem, I will then repair or replace and re-ship at my expense, covering your return postal cost in addition. If there is no problem with the item, I will either re-post at your expense (with postal payment up-front), or offer you a refund minus 10% of the original price. This is because used harmonicas will require ultrasonic cleaning to return them to a hygenic condition.
 
Assuming either way that I post the harmonica or other item back, if you decide then not to keep it, it must be posted back by you in as-new condition no later than 1 week after it was received the second time. In that circumstance, once I get it back again you will be due a refund minus 30% of the total cost of your order. 
 
How you play is important for the long life of your harmonica! Some players blow out reeds very quickly due to bad technique. You should be careful not to blow and draw too hard, or bend any notes so low that the pitch is flat. Some reeds should not be bent but in the case of those that can, just bend to the note you want, to stay in tune and not over stress the reeds. Let the harp dry out after playing and keep in its case.

Nice Change

As usual Ron gave me good service. If you are good at picking out melodies (which I'm not) this is a very good harp to get. The tone of this is very good. I especially like the three lower ones. And oh yes, on the Low C they are bendable and I'm not a great bender. The mid range notes sparkle and highs lack shrillness. The other quality about the Power Bender is its sturdiness. Just picking it up you know by the heavy weight it is solid. If you put it in your back pocket it will not break if you sit down, though you may get one heck of a bruise on your bottom. I also like the key labeling on the ends. Looking at the initials PB for a moment I thought the Chinese got got Brendan Power's name backwards then it occurred to me PB stood for Power Bender. All in all, I'm satisfied I received something different, challenging with quality. The $60 was worth it.
