[Harp-L] RE: Peavey Harp Mic

I saw the Peavey Harp Mic at the NAMM Show in
I looks just like the ?Superlux D112C?.  As I
recall, it was green like the Shure, and it has a
special connector that connects the cable to the
body.  I didn?t get a chance to try it out, but
then again, I?m pretty happy with what I?ve got.  

As an aside, I was told by the head of the audio
dept that Peavey has a team of engineers in the
amp dept. working on a harp amp.  A short time
later I was contacted by Peavey for input as to
what I thought a harp amp should have, or be?I
told them to get hold of a Sonny Jr. SJ410 and a
Harpgear II.  Study those, and come with something
about the size of the Harpgear amp, with the power
and tonal palette of the SJ410 for half the price
of the Harpgear amp and they wouldn?t be able to
make them fast enough to keep up with demand.
Since then I have not heard anything...

Axe Music's web site has a placeholder for this
They don't have it in stock, nor a photo of it.
Peavey's web site 
doesn't mention it.

So it must not be out there yet.  I'll be
interested to see it.  A mic 
is the second-to-least expensive thing you can buy
(the least expensive 
being a decent delay pedal) to get a new,
different, and usable sound 
out of the harp.  This one will apparently sell
for about $109.  I hope 
it's not just a re-packaged Audix Fireball--I've
already got one of those.

This is the second mass manufacturer (Audix being
the first) to release 
a mic designed expressly for harmonica players in
the last year or so. 
Pretty interesting.  We talk a lot on this list
about how harp players 
don't have prospects, don't get no respect, etc.,
etc.  But two major 
manufacturers have apparently decided that there
are enough harp players 
out there to make investing in product development
for harp players
