Re: [Harp-L] Approaching an unfamiliar PA

The tiresome thing is that the harmonica player rarely has any CONTROL over 
 the PA.
It is often the luck of the draw...
But fellow harmonica players, I suggest you make friends with the sound  
man. They can make or break your performance.

When  you´re in a jam situation going through a vocal mic and just barely 
have the  time to make some adjustments to a PA, the conventional wisdom, so 
I have  thought, for harmonica players is to set full bass, no treble and 
mid to  somewhere round 11 o´clock.
However, I just read that this setting  could actually cause a more shrill 
kind of sound than giving a bit of treble  and backing down on the bass.
As usual, I have no idea -- and  not very much chance to experiment; I only 
know that one of the most horrible  noises known to mankind under the 
general caption of "music" is a harmonica  with insufficient equalization. It 
pains me to think that I may have  unwittingly been a contributor to this kind 
of environmental  hazard.

Anyone with thoughts on  this?
