RE: [Harp-L] Popper and Fender Harp

Thanks for the reply, Mike.  I actually use the 1847s regularly.  I was raised on Special 20s, moved over to Golden Melodies when I fell across overblowing, and tried an 1847 at a SPAH around 7 years ago, and havenât looked back since.  I try different harps on occasion, but the 1847 just fits me best.  I like the Session Steel, too, but not as much as the 1847s.  And, for what itâs worth, my 1847s are now all over 5 years old, and still going strong!

I hit on this in another post, but the harp isn't out until May and JP isn't even gigging with them yet.  It is a Seydel Antique Blues Favorite with Session Steel reed plates.  The only modification is the lacquer on the covers so they are smooth (well, I guess the coverplate stamp is different too).


Try a Session Steel. It is near the same thing.  If you typically play Special 20's like I do, you'll find the SS covers to sit higher and slightly change your embouchure.  I've sound using 1847 covers to be beneficial.  The Session Steel is a fantastic harp, and cheaper than the Fender version (well, in theory).

Cool video of John Popper.  Thanks to whoever took it.  His style certainly 
is recognizable and fluid. 
Has anyone tried the new Fender harp he's hawking?
