When I play in a bar, I mostly just use my 1990's 40 Watt Fender Blues
Deluxe without additional amplification, with a JT-30 Crystal Balls or an Audix
Fireball V mic. If I play in a big venue, with a proper sound system, my
amp is mostly miced through the house multi kilowatt PA, by an SM57 or
similar. (Controlled by the venue's sound man).
For recording, I mostly play un-amplified, or I use my trusty old Pig Nose
(The smallest one). This is great for a Chicago sound in the studio. My
Fender tube amp "hums" too much!
For more than 25 years I used a Vox JMI Supreme 100 Watt transistor amp
(Retailed as 200 Watts) for EVERYTHING... It was a wonderful harp amp! But it
wore out. Then I used a Fender Bassman 100 Watt tube amp top with two
2x12" cabs... But that was too "clean" to get a Chicago sound, and "fed back"
very easily. So I down sized to a Blues Deluxe.
For "electric" gigs, playing with guitarists using 200 Watt stacks, or
Fender Twins... I usually request the guitarist to "Please turn down". LOL.
The BEST harp amp I have played through was a Sonny Jr...
John "Whiteboy" Walden
Just now in bonnie Scotland.

Just would like to take an informal survey. How many Harp-L players mic
their amp through the PA no matter what?
thanks, Chris Mastakas
