        Hohner Blues Blasters and Astatic JT30s are identical - made at 
the same plant with the same parts. Kevin no longer sells the Piazzas, I 
don't believe - instead, he sells his own similar "Crystal Balls" mod. I 
have one of these. It's a good mic but not worth twice the price of an 
un-modified JT-30. The best thing about it is the heavy-duty volume 
control (the cheesy ones on the JT-30s tend to crap out).
