When I met Paul at SPAH in 1996 he was using a ZOOM effects unit.
It was about the size of a Walkman. Now, we can't be sure that he was not just using higher quality studio versions of the same effects type. Maybe the ZOOM was his portable live rig.
He had it inside of his harp case (anvil style briefcase.) It was wired to in/out jacks on the outside of the case. He either plugged it into an amp or the PA.
He called it his "Space Case." I think that is what he was talking about marketing, maybe in jest.
What a great guy and player he was.Michael Peloquin http://www.harpsax.com
