In order to play a chromatic scale on the normal 10 hole harmonica (Below: 10H), you have to use difficult overblow/overdraw techniques, which require harmonicas with very delicate reed setup. The new Suzuki SUB30 Ultra Bend changes all that! Now you can get a chromatic scale by normal playing using a simple bending technique. With the SUB30 Ultra Bend, you can easily play phrases and music styles that you gave up on before, because you could not get some notes. A normal 10 hole harp has 20 reeds: two reeds in each hole (one blow & one draw). The 30 reed SUB30 Ultra Bend harp has an extra Sympathetic Reed in each hole, one tone below the pitch of the lowest note. This reed is normally passive. It only becomes active when the player wants to bend the low note in each hole. (1-6 low & 7-10 draw). On a normal C harp in hole 4, you can get a bent note C# between C and D, but you cannot bend the C note. To bend C, you need a reed lower then C. That is the 3rd Sympathetic Reed of the SUB30 Ultra Bend! In hole 4, this reed is tuned down to a Bb. That means you can now bend the C down to B! The same applies throughout the range. Every single low note in each hole can now be bent down a semitone! It is these 10 extra Sympathetic Reeds which allow you to play fully Chromatically by bending technique alone. The revolutionary new SUB30 Ultra Bend harmonica gives you 18 bends of a semitone or more (instead of the usual 8 on a normal harp)! And these are all stable bends, easy to control at the correct pitch, bend up and down, add vibrato etc. - just the same as the bends you're use to already.

BAck to the Suz. Ultrabend: By "lacking power" I mean you need more air to begin to approach the volume of the XB 40. The sound is "true," It seems to me the bends are more controlled.
I take the Suzukis with me when I play. Just can't seem to feel comfortable with the reliability of the XBs.
Finally, I have valved and non-vaulved Promasters. Get the valved! So much more expression through these ultra bends...
Not only the sound is great, but also it is much more ergonomic than the bulkier Hohner one.
I certainly recommend it!
