Hi Don,

there must be someone who has played the Turbo ELX, because there are
some soundsamples on the website. ;-)

But - sorry Mr. Turbodog - I think that those samples are rather "poor",
this means: not a good example for the revolutionary concept of this
harp: the playing is quite "slovenly", and too much "playing with the
knobs" of effect devices instead of just demonstrating that it should be
easy to "use" effects in a better way with the ELX. And I am also
missing a demonstration how it works with a tube amp without any
additional effects for a -say- Chicago Sound (only to compare).

But aside of this: I agree with you, that this could be a very
interesting new harp. Especially if you are looking for new sounds for
the harmonica and / or new directions. Maybe I am wrong, but that is the
imagination that I have with the ELX and I think that this should be its
main purpose: new sounds for the harmonica not trying to copy existing
sounds (because they are good the way they are).

I know that I'd need a harp that goes in this direction.
