Reed plates

Irregularities in the reeds are carefully honed. The draw reeds sit evenly and compared to the instruments commercially available, less air escapes. The foundation is the Marine Band crossover reed plate.


Instruments that have been customized by Andersson have a well balanced sound and they are tuned to 442 Hz (compromised tuning).


These high-end harmonicas have been fitted with special performance combs developed by Andersson. The aerodynamic chambers provide an improved airflow. JA Performance Combs are made from FSC certified composite materials. They are thinner than the commercial combs and fastened to the reed plates. The materials used are certified ‘food safe’ and extremely durable.

Why a custom harmonica?

One thing right from the top: a warm and full sound can only be achieved by the harmonica player.

The harmonicas that Joel Andersson has carefully customized will help every player realize their potential and personal sound on the instrument. With handcrafted precision Andersson brings the best out of every instrument. The optimized reed plates and combs on JA Custom Harmonicas aid beginners when learning playing techniques. For professional players they are reliable partners enabling performers to concentrate completely on the musical elements of their performances.
