 Don't sell yourself short. There is a world champion harmonica player in 
Toronto by the name of Carlos Del Junco and he uses a Radio Shack mic with 
analog tape echo and a fender bassman as his gig setup. This guy can blow 
the doors off most pro's I have heard. I am told that Carlos thinks that 
that mic has a real nice sound.
