The newly released Will’s Make A12 (Advanced) is a new
state-of-the-art 3 octave chromatic harmonica.
The parts were manufactured using modern production processes:
CNC, 3D printing and lasering
Except for the reeds and slide stopper the A12 does not utilize any screws.
There has never been a chromatic harmonica easier to dis/assemble and maintain.
The Grenadilla (African wood) covers are extra thin (0.8 mm) with smooth coating for easy lip movement and plenty of sound holes for additional sound distribution.
The inside covers are half channeled and include added silver sheets for reinforcement and added tone color.
Both covers can easily be de/attached via magnets.
The two piece slider system includes lasered channels to prevent a sticky slider. The half moon shaped mouth piece includes semi square holes. Via rails it slides onto the body and is completely air tight. That way the slider can be removed and re-attached within seconds.
The custom 2 mm thick reed plates come with screwed on Seydel Symphony extra polished stainless steel reeds. Both reed plates are attached via a removable rail and 2 clamps (for each side).
The trapezoid shaped TI body allows for extra wide openings between covers and body.
There is also a fourteen hole version (A14) available.
