Subject: RE: 24 Hole Harmonicas Wanted
G'day again "The GUEST who was called BUTTERFLY",

Thanks for passing on the contacts you have made. I had a quick google round the www and found a number of interesting sites - including one that seemed to have similar sets of organ / octave tuned harmonicas ("octave" is the better word to search) ... but I haven't been able to get the search result URL to open ... even though the last examples in the "Cache" were as recent as early December 2006.

I'll try again, when I have a chance.

I didn't find any Australian dealers ... generally I find it simplest (& cheapest) to buy direct from American dealers / sites. Service is generally good, prices low (often, in other areas, such as books, less than half the cost of UK sites!) I did buy a complete 12 major keys set of vamper harmonicas (10-hole / 20 reed vampers) ... all in a reinforced, fitted, cloth case and it came in under Aust$100 ... about Aust$8.00 per harmonica. That was an American site ... but they don't advertise and sets of tremolo harmonicas, let alone octave ones!
