So, I was browsing some harmonica sites the other day when I found that a Chinese company, Easttop is making Paddy Richter tuned harmonicas and selling them for under $20. Normally I would have completely ignored this since so many Chinese branded harmonicas are not very good. But then I found out that Brendan Power teamed up with them to make his Lucky 13 harp and their standard diatonics seem to be gaining a reputation in the Blues Harp community as serious bargains. I have never really tried Paddy Richter because the Seydel Harps are relatively expensive, and Brendan Powers are as well, and I never relished the idea of risking a $30-50 harmonica with trying to do it myself.

In any case, does anyone here have any experience with them?

I have an Easttop Paddy Richter in G. It’s a nice harmonica, much better than expected given the price.
You can also get Easttop Lucky13 double Paddy Richter Harmonicas for about the price of a Seydel Paddy Richter. On those the first three holes are repeated an octave lower than normal.
