Where can I find someone who custom tunes or sells pre-tuned chromatic harmonicas in London UK?

Brendan Power's web site is pretty cryptic & only has an email address for contact, anyway it probably costs more than I can afford.

I need a chromatic harp modified to Bebop tuning, could it be done DIY with interchangeable reeds? or maybe bought off the peg.

You might try enquiring of the National Harmonica League. They're quite likely to know of someone.

Hi All:

Brendan's products may cost a bit but they are worth every penny.
Don't hesitate to contact him by email. He is very down to earth, extremely
approachable and delivers top notch service. If he is out of your budget
range I'm sure he'd be more than willing to suggest other customizers or
discuss other options or methods to get the harp you want into your hands.
