Re: [Harp-L] Amp for Guitar and Harmonica?

I use a predecessor of the Quilter 8”.  It has a channel for the guitar with appropriate controls and a separate “clean” channel for a mic that I use for harmonica.  It has reverb that can be assigned to either channel or to a mix of the two.  I assign the reverb to the harmonica channel to “sweeten” it just a bit so that it doesn’t sound too harsh.

I also use an AMT harmonica microphone on my harp holder.

I use a Hands-Free-Chromatic harmonica but the setup will work just as well with a diatonic.

I tested out a Fender Blues Junior on my guitar at guitar center, which sounded great, but after doing some research it seems the consensus is a Blues Junior should be modified before being used for harp.  My budget is maxed at $600, with the understanding I may have to get a pedal or two on top of the amp.
