Re: [Harp-L] Harp-L] Toots

I believe that I have seen a photo of Toots playing on Greg Heumann's
Ultimate 58.  This makes a lot of sense since he is on record saying that
he prefers to use the Shure SM58.

I have no connection to Greg  Heumann, except that I personally
prefer the Ultimate 58 and my daughter prefers the Ultimate 57  See Greg's
products here....
