The HarpGear Hurricane:

The HarpGear Hurricane is HarpGear's next step in building a mid sized amp which achieves 15W using a fixed bias 6V6 setup.  This is based on a Fender Black Face Princeton Reverb .  This amp is setup specifically for harmonica and uses all of our standard harp amp modifications we have become known for.  This amp was designed to add flexibility to our amp line and allow you to play in a small to medium sized venue with the confidence of knowing you will have great one and a lush reverb without any need for pedals.  The Hurricane uses two weber signature series straight cone 8" speakers.    The amp has three adjustable tone controls being Bass, Middle and Treble.  This amp  has an oversized output transformer like the other amps and even more great bass to really accentuate those low notes while you're playing.  This amp will generate 15 watts of power which comes across quite loud and with a lot of punch.  This amp is available in Carbon Fiber Tolex with a silver grill.  The amps size is 16"Hx19-7/8"Wx9-1/2"D and weighs just under 25lbs.

Deak Harp playing the HarpGear Hurricane

All HarpGear Amplifiers include:

-Solid pine finger jointed cabinet.

-Solid 3/8" Baltic birch baffle for the best sound reproduction.  The baffle acts just like the sound board on a guitar and unlike particle board baffles which absorb the tone the Baltic birch reproduces your tone accurately.

-High quality transformers for a truly awesome sound as well as oversized transformers to add more honk to your amp and give you plenty of sweet round distortion.

-Mil Spec G10 Garrolite eyelet boards to prevent both tweed disease and moisture absorption common on pressed fiber boards which produces false capacitance and causes crackle and hum.  You will not have that problem with our boards and they will last a lifetime.

-Highest quality components including Sprague Atoms capacitors, Xicon Capacitors, Sprague Orange Drop, IC or Mallory 150 tone caps, phenolic sockets, switchcraft jacks and custom transformers.

-All amplifiers are hand wired one at a time with the utmost attention to detail.  All component leads are straightened and cleaned before the are soldered to the G10 board.

-Values of components are increased in key areas to make the amplifier more responsive with all the bass and crunch a harp player needs. 

-Weber VST speakers, Real Vintage and Jensen vintage speakers.

-An additional line out jack to run to the PA so you will never have a problem being heard over the rest of the band.  You can still use your amp as a monitor to hear yourself while plugged into the PA.  The line out can also be used to record directly into your computer line in or into a sound board.

Please feel free to contact me and discuss your playing style as there are options which can be customized to enhance your sound.  These amplifiers can be fitted with international power supplies also to allow overseas customers to use them also.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
