Please buy me this MIDI harmonica

Please buy me this MIDI harmonica

Get. Out. This is a Lekholm Instruments DM48 Digital Chromatic Harmonica, a MIDI harmonica that plays just like a read reeded instrument but that can sound like anything.

I mean just watch this:

Now for the bad news. This crazy instrument is quite difficult to master – the company recommends extensive experience with synths – and it costs “7500 SEK (~750 EUR) including Swedish VAT plus shipping (~25 EUR). Non-EU customers avoid VAT and pay 6000 SEK (~720 USD) plus shipping (~30 USD).” That’s right: almost a grand for a harmonica that can resurrect the ghost of Charlie Parker. You can check it out here.

On second thought maybe I’ll just stick with my Hohner Marine Band.
