My newest acquisition just arrived!

Although not as crazy cheap (in terms of percentage of discount) as some of my diatonics, this was still a great bargain at about $80.00US. Chromatics don't come on sale very often so you have to strike while the iron is hot.

I really like the Suzuki SCX chromatics. They are very well-built and innovative. However, all Suzuki chroms (including the very pricey models) have a reputation for noisy windsavers. This tends to be an issue on the lower notes. Because this D is extremely low, the valve rattle affects more notes than usual.

I don't know how other makers designate the keys on their chromatics but, in Suzuki world, the "C" is the highest chromatic key and everything else is low. I think the D is the lowest key chrom that they make. This systems only applies to their chromatics.

I will post a demo song soon.

Sheesh...even my MOTHER says I didn't do a very good job here! Tough crowd!

OK...ignore my playing. I just wanted to show that the harp works. It does. Here's my unpopular version of Sealed With a Kiss.
