[Harp-L] Brad Harrison won big for the harmonica

Hi all, just wanted to pass this news along.  Whether you like Brad or other customizers in general, this is a big win for the harmonica.  He pitched his idea to people who had no interest in music or the harmonica in general, and convinced them that they could make money on his ideas.  He competed against inventors of products in the medical field and airport security and took first place.  Here is the message forwarded from his e-mail list:
