Marine Band 365/28 SBS

The legend with special Steve Baker tuning

In contrast to the Marine Band models listed above, where the tonal range is simply extended upwards, this model designed by accomplished harp player and author Steve Baker features a tonal range which is extended downwards by repeating the note configuration normally found in holes 1-3 one octave lower (except in the keys of G and A, where the lower holes are the same as standard tuning and not one octave lower.  In these two instances, the note range actually extends higher). This permits draw note bending over a far greater range and enables the player to use all registers of the instrument.
