When Bushman revealed their Delta Frost harmonicas at the 2003 SPAH Convention in Dallas, Texas, they instantly made waves in the harmonica-playing world. In just seven short years, this small company (located right down the road from Sweetwater in Indianapolis) grew from a simple retailer to one of the world’s premier harmonica makers. They accomplished this by paying very close attention to what gigging players really need and supplying them with products that offer superior value and playability.
At first glance, Delta Frost harmonicas look like any other harps, but under the traditional-looking stainless-steel faceplate, there’s a world of cutting-edge innovation. For instance, Delta Frost harmonicas feature reeds made from phosphor bronze instead of regular brass, steel, or aluminum. This not only allows Delta Frost harmonicas to keep their tuning longer, but it also gives them a distinctly sweet and soulful sound. Anyone who plays harmonica should have a collection of these harps!
