[Harp-L] Re: Volume control
As a general rule harp players spend an inordinate amount of money on
We buy vintage mics, new mics, custom mics, crystal elements, dynamic
ones, CRs, CMs, amps galore, various brands of off the shelf harps,
custom harps, tuners, toolkits, cases, effect pedals. Not to mention
CDs and DVDs, books, etc, etc. We spend vast amounts of cash travelling
to see other harp players perform.
I mean compare some of these prices:
Boutique amp approx £1500 plus shipping
Custom JT30 approx £100 plus shipping
Custom harp Qty 1 approx £80 plus shipping
Now we pay these prices for gear because we want to use quality
equipment and while we balk a little at the price, we still pay it. Why

things and appreciate the end product.

a quality product and that a lot of time and effort has gone into
creating the final design. I would say that it's a well thought out
design and is constructed to a very high standard.
Now imagine how long it takes to produce, I bet it doesn't work out at
a great hourly rate of pay for Greg.
I personally think that the cost (approx £40 plus shipping) is pretty
If you could find an original Astatic volume control I'll bet it would
cost you a hell of a lot more.
