8/8/07 *** As
a follow up to the Mandolin picture, I heard from it's owner. It
is a long time customer Ken Barry. He sent some more pics of him
and some friends jamming using his HG1. Also there is a video
today that was shown to me that has me in it jamming on harp with
didgeridoo and taiko drums. I didn't know I was being recorded
but it was a pleasent suprise. I warn you this isn't
your standard blues.
8/7/07 *** I
just got a call from John Schaman out of Canada who is at a festival
where Carlos del Junco is teaching and performing. Carlos used
HG2 today at the seminar and plans to use it tonight at his gig.
just got off the phone with Carlos and he is interested in getting one
of my amps. He said he has never heard a small amp sound so good
the voicing of the amp is right on for harmonica. It was a
talking with Carlos and hearing from John again! I am eager to
from him after his concert with it tonight.
8/7/07 *** I
got back from St. Augustine, FL yesterday and now I am getting ready to
go to New Orleans, LA. If anyone is in New Orleans and knows of
good jams going on August 14th - 20th please let me know. I will still
be able to handle orders while on the road and there won't be any
delays because of the trip. As of right now I have an HG30
in green and cream available for immediate shipment. If anyone is
coming to central FL and is ever looking for a good jam or some thing
to do while in town let me know and we can get together. John
Sturm of John's Music in Hilton Head, SC recently sent me this cool pic
of a Flying V mandolin leaned against a HarpGear amp. He found
it on Mandolin Cafe.
It's always cool to see people use the amps for other
instruments. It's a nice looking mandolin too.
8/2/07 *** I

there. The camp was great and I learned a lot. For my
