The Suzuki Gold Promaster harmonica is a limited production version of the Promaster Valved. This revolutionary harmonica features precision crafted reed plates for easy note bending and phosphor bronze reeds. The draw cycle valve system circulates air to allow note bending in the blow as well as the draw cycle. Its note bending abilities will make your music magical. Comes with a soft lined hard shell carrying case. The Gold Promaster Valved harmonica features a CNC-machined billet alloy comb, the ultimate in precision air tightness and lasting quality. The phosphor bronze interchangeable reeds are built using Suzuki's computer-controlled laser cutting system, producing unheard of tone and sound projection. Plated in 18 karat gold with satin black anodized combs, the Gold Promaster is a top-of-the-line handcrafted harmonica. The Suzuki harp comes with a soft lined ergonomic carrying case.
Valves-also known as windsavers-are typically used in chromatic harmonicas to prevent air from going into the reed that is not being played. For example, air from a blow reed does not escape through the slit for the draw reed. On a diatonic harmonica, valves make it more airtight and it becomes easier to bend the lower blow notes and upper draw notes by focusing more of the air to a single reed.
