Re: [Harp-L] Harmonica Amps and Harmonicas


Good harps are essential, but they don't amplify themselves, I don't any 
recordings of Manjis or Crossovers, in the grand scheme of things they are 
somewhere between rarer than rocking horse shit & non existent. Yes, have 
responsive instruments, but if you want to fill even as mall room, you need an 
amp (a PA is an amp).

Lots of posts about amps. Lots.

There are some terrific products now, for sure, built by people who really know 
their stuff. Some on this list lay down serious money for these amps, fiddle 
about with new tubes, change amps, fiddle about some more. I've done likewise.

For anyone thinking of doing this, first look in your harmonica bag. When did 
you last update your instruments? If it's been a long while, then try a Hohner 
Crossover and a Suzuki Manji. Chances are they'll blow the socks off the 
instruments you've already got (custom instruments excepted), and will make a 
far bigger difference than yet another amp change, at less cost.
