Harp Gear harmonica amplifiers for
harp amp players.
7/24/07 *** I
am on my way to Philadelphia now and I won't be back until 8/1.
have any questions please feel free to call (number below) or email.
I may be slow to reply to emails this week but I will do my best.
can still take orders from the road and there will be no delays in new
orders shipping being caused
by the trip. I hope your week is good and I will be back soon!
7/22/07 *** Yesterday
was the Suncoast
amp taste test. We all got together and tried each others amps
a great time. We spoke a little on amps and what makes them
also played some jam tracks and jammed for quite a while. It was
great time. You can see
pictures of the meeting here.
I will be leaving for Philly on 7/24 and I will be back on 7/31.
may cause a delay in my answering of emails because I don't travel with
a laptop. My hotel should have a business center where I can
email. If it doesn't there could be a small lag in
answers. I have
been keeping my ship times under 2 weeks from payment and this
shouldn't cause any problems with that turnaround. Please know
reach me at my cellphone while I am gone. It is the number at the
bottom of the page. Please don't hesitate to call me if you need
anything or have questions. It will be more reliable than email
week. As of right now I still have one HG30 left in stock ready
ship. It can go out Monday before I leave if anyone gets with me
before then. As always please
ask any questions you might have
and I am always happy to hear from you. Last but not least, I am
looking for jams in Philly between 7/24 and 7/27 if anyone knows of
7/18/07 *** Philadelphia
is drawing nearer and I have been working on getting some amps ready in
advance so I don't have any shipping delays. Right now I have a
Tweed and an HG30 in green
and cream tolex ready to ship. I also am selling one of my Dennis
Gruenling microphones. It is a 60's white label controlled
green bullet in excellent shape. You can find
the auction here.
I have been playing with JT-30 mics lately and I just like the feel of
them a little better. I still use CM and CR elements in my JT-30
shells. I just like their tone better than the MC-127 or MC-151
elements in the JT-30. I will also be listing a good ceramic
element for sale soon. If you are interested in the element
feel free to get in contact
7/15/07 *** Been
thinking about getting an HG2 lately?
Well I have a new
one listed on ebay
you can get slightly discounted! If you are thinking about
HG2 then now is the time. I am going to be in Philly and
24-31 and I will be looking for a blues jam at that time to
go to. If
you are from either of those areas and can recommend anything I would be
most appreciative. I will mainly be looking for the Philly area
from the 24th-27th.
7/14/07 *** For
those of you looking for something different I have a Double Trouble
head and extension cabinet combo I am going to be offering for sale
this week. It is a one of a kind in gold and black tolex.
cab is seperate and can be used with any 8 ohm speaker cabinet and the
extension cabinet is a 1x10"- 2x8" 3 speaker ext cab. It has 2
signature series 8" straight cone speakers and 1- 10" weber signature
series ribbed cone in it. I am going to sell this one for
shipping which is the same cost as the normal Double
this extension cabinet the amp is louder and has better cut. The
extension cabinet is 20"x20"x10". The cabinets will have the
nameplates on them when they ship. Please feel free to ask any questions you might
have. On a different note the used HG2 is sold. Thanks!
7/11/07 *** I
just took in a "used" HG2
on trade for a bigger amp and it is now for sale at a reduced
rate. This amp is in like new condition and looks like the day I
shipped it. It is in the older style cabinet but is
otherwise exactly the same as a new HG2 with a Weber Signature Series
straight cone alnico speaker like the stock HG2. I went
through the amp and tested everything and put new tubes in it as a
precaution and now it's ready to go. The price for this HG2 will
be $600 plus shipping and it is available to the first taker.
Please contact me if you are
interested in this or any other amp.
7/6/07 *** The
Sonny Jr 1 sold to my friend Brian A. in MN. For my friends
who also play shakuhachi
I will be at the KiSuiAn
Shakuhachi Camp in West Chester, PA coming up July 24th-31st.
It is hosted by Grandmaster Nyogetsu
and will be a great event and learning experience. I will not
have amps with me while I am in PA but if you are in the Philly area
and want to meet let me know. I will still have harps there and I
will be on the lookout for any local blues jams.
7/4/07 *** Happy
4th of July! I was just surfing over at JT-30.com and I found an old article
that really helped me with my tone and I wanted to share it. It's
an old page on his site but a good one regardless. It's
Tone - What it is and how to get it. It was one of the
first article I found when I was learning to play. I hope
everyone is safe today and have fun!
7/3/07 *** Recently,
I took a Sonny Jr 1 on trade
and I am probably going to sell it. If anyone is interested in
adding it to their collection let
me know. It is the export model so not only will it work in
the states (120v) but it can be used overseas with the flip of a
switch. Up for 120v and down for the 220/240v selection. (I do
ship overseas). It is a 4x8" amp
in lacquered tweed.
It's 48# and is 22"w x 24"h x 10"d and has great tone. It is the
same kind of amp that Kim Wilson used to record the albums "My Blues"
and "Tigerman". It is in great condition and you can see the pics
here. Besides a small
superficial scratch on the faceplate (see pics) it is in almost new
condition. I have laminated copies of the instructions, old ads
for it and the original receipt. Last but not least it comes with
the heavily padded custom tuki cover it came with. I got it from
the original owner
who took great care of it. There was only #167 of these amps made
and they are rare. If you are interested in it please drop me a line. Happy 4th
of July and be safe.
7/1/07 *** I've
had a few people asking about the HarpGear shirts lately. So I
thought I would repost this link for anyone interested in ordering a
shirt. It is handled by Zazzle and the shirt quality is very good
and they ship quickly. If you get a shirt please feel free to
send me a picture of yourself in it for the site if you would
like. I'll post it in the news section. The front has the
slogan"got tone?" and the back has the HarpGear logo and info.
Zazzle will even let you customize the shirt and move the graphics
around to your liking.
