A lot of newbies try to get that wailing sound from the reeds before they learn that it actually comes from the mouth and diaphragm of the player.

Once you figure out how to shape the notes using your body, the wear and tear (and the replacement cost) goes down exponentially.

On the other hand, we all know that no matter what instrument you play, an instrument that feels, looks, and sounds good can be an inspiration and a motivator to you for the purpose of advancing your abilities.

Force destroys harps, and it also slows you down and makes your playing less nimble. Practicing without amplification is preferential to wailing away through an amp. If you develop the tones you want acoustically, you'll only sound better amplified. You can always hook up the gear and get your ya-ya's when you've finished a good acoustic practice session... at some point you gotta learn the gear too. :)

if i were starting out, i'd go with sp20, big river, or suzuki bluesmaster. all pretty well made and dependable if one doesn't draw too hard too often!

and btw, grteg heumann is a hero of mine- an ace mic builder and modifier! he's a go-to guy for your mic needs.

I am a guitar player so I have several amps and my dad used to play harmonica back 20 years ago, so I have an old JT30.

What do you think?
