Product Information

"Wow! What a difference your comb made on a Big River. ... man this harp really sings now. It has been hard to put it down. ... I would like to order some more. These are really worth every penny, great combs." - L.C. Colorado, USA.
 
Custom combs for Hohner Marine band, Hohner MS-series, Hohner Golden Melody, Special 20/Rocket,  Seydel 1847, Solist Pro, Favorite. Suzuki harmonicas, Lee Oskar,  and Delta Frost. For more info on models. see below in bold.
 
Earth-friendly, high-performance combs made for demanding players. Ideal for all musicians who want great tone and "overblow-level" response from their instrument.
 
Dark combs made from an earth-friendly composite of 100 per cent recycled paper, resin produced from naturally occurring raw materials and selected natural pigments. This material is strong, dense, waterproof, hypoallergenic, and does not emit any volatile organic compounds. It has been certified food safe, contains no petroleum-based chemicals and doesn't have an odour. You can submerge the whole harp under water to clean it.  I do.  You can't do that with a wood comb - even if it's sealed.  That criteria was on the top of my list when I went looking for a material from which to make combs.  The material is made to get wet. I spray coolant on them as they get cut. They are sopping wet when I cut them because the material is so tough, the drill bit heats up.  I found out I had to do that after I started a small fire in my shop once...  We learn by making mistakes and I "learned" a lot! All info from Andrew Zajac.
I do not know of any material that is better suited for harmonica combs. These combs have all the benefits of a flat, unsealed Pearwood comb with none of the drawbacks. This material allows me to focus on flatness without compromising the look and feel. The affordable price reflects how manageable it is to produce excellent combs out of this material. But don't be fooled - these are my very best combs.
 
Dark combs have a glossy smooth front for comfortable playing. The sides and back of my Dark combs are lightly polished to a matte finish which has a nice appearance and feels comfortable to hold. Over time and with use, these surfaces will develop their own natural shine as they become worn in.
 
My Dark combs are superior to combs made out of Corian. They do not shatter when dropped on the floor, and their production has a much lower environmental impact.

Some harmonica reed plates were designed to be used with a recessed comb. These reed plates do not have a groove into which the coverplate can lock in. Although you can install these reed plates onto a "sandwich-type" comb, you may experience a loss of airtightness if the coverplates become bent.

AZ Combs

I never been able to get a good seal with stock combs until I purchased one of AZ's comb for one of my Marine Band. These combs are amazing! I've already tried another one for a Big River. If you do anything to your harmonica, this would be the first step! Will definitely be back for more...

Super Seal on This Comb

Without doing any gapping, I sanded the draw plate and installed a Zajac comb on my OOTB Golden Melody and immediately noticed a difference in responsiveness and volume! RockinRonsMusic is the USA dealer for these great combs.

Zajac Combs

Andrew Zajac's combs are exceptional in every detail. Extremely flat, made from an evironmentally friendly fully sealed composite that more than captures the essence of the Hohner tone for me. I own two of AZs' combs for Hohner Marine Band diatonic, one is ten hole the other a twelve hole for 364. If you work on your own harmonicas you know that one of the first improvements to an instrument is a flat comb, Andrew's are top drawer.
