I was so happy to find another harp-ler in San Diego that I invited Dane
over by phone as soon as I read his post. He came over a couple hours later.
The timing was good, since I had time to fix my wife breakfast beforehand,
and time to load up for my gig afterwards.

I want to clarify that I don't really have a "bunch of his mics" if you are
thinking of the one that Vince mentioned. I have a selection of mics, some
have more gain than others, some crystal, some CR, some dynamic. I have a
small selection that are available for sale at $100 each. Once I establish
an ebay account, there will be pictures, but if you want to take a chance on
one before that, send me a PM.

Thanks for coming over, Dane, and for the very kind words. You are a prince.
