    It\'s becoming a cliche almost, but:

    It says \"Fake\" Glass Harmonica, but I would try it anyway. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    The VSL Pro Edition will have one with their percussion set.

    Maarten-

    The original Donizetti scoring is for Glass Harmonica. Flute was substituted because of his inability to employ one in the first performances around Europe.

    Hardly a cliche. I rather like it in the Mad Scene myself. I think flute is the real cliche in the Bel Canto cadenza.

    (My opinion,only)

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">I perfecly know what\'s happening here: it\'s called a misunderstanding. Maarten ment going to Tob site is a cliché and Samarco understood that using a glass harminica in an opera is a clichée. I\'m so sensible in understanding people!!!

    Try Best of Bolder (also mentioned recently in the Autoharp post) - it has loads of \'crystal glasses\' patches with a variety of glass sounds - both hits and sustained bowing sounds.

    There\'s some great stuff on this CD.
