My goal is to provide affordable custom Hohner harmonicas (and maintenance/repair services) to UK residents,
but international customers are more than welcome.
Note to my regular customers: I've just moved house. Please don't send me anything until you get my new address from me.
"Hohner make a great Harmonica, Henry makes them special." - David P, UK
"...It's simply wonderful. I barely have to blow to get a tone, especially the high notes.
You are one helleva customizer. You surely know your stuff. I am so pleased.
This harp is sweet." - Steven B, Chicago USA

Contact me for rates on customer-provided harps.
UPDATE [22.03.13]: My `custom comb` of choice is now Blue Moon Harmonicas' black c0rian (an extremely durable material more commonly used for kitchen surfaces, etc). These combs are milled extremely flat, making the harmonica more airtight, thus maximising performance.
Different colours, materials, or thicknesses available on special request and, unfortunately, at increased cost.
For more info, please email.
