I also find hard to play the 2 highest holes rather hard but Toots Thielemans gets a beautiful sound from the 11 hole draw in many of his tunes, including when he's jamming the blues in C.
I'm sure the 260 will be easier to cup with a bullet and to do some hand effects on a normal microphone too
: The 260 is the same as the 270 except that it is missing the upper 2 highest holes and tends to be a bit more airtight. I finally gave up thinking I would ever play the 2 highest holes because, dammit, they're just too damn high.
: : Can anyone tell me what is the difference in the note layout between the 10 hole 260 and the 12 hole 270 chroms? i.e what half octave is missing in the smaller chrom (or are there any other changes)
: : What is it like to play, tone, bendability etc? I have small hands and it may be much easier to cup than the standard 12 holes for me.
: : This question is for everybody who has one, in particular to Stan (I think you play them)
: : Thank you
