Fender Pro and Blues Jr. vs. Harmony 304A

The lowdown on the Mississippi Sax. Just for Google, this section is about harmonicas.

When Little Walter started, there were no PA's like what has evolved today as we now know it and most of the time, the vast MAJORITY of bands didn't have one at all, and the PA's were either those chepo Bogens like those used in schools or they were the guitar amps and most of the amps made in the late 40's to the mid to late 50's carried two inputs, one foir instrument and one for a micropohone clearly marked and so this is what the PA was back then and it was something that evolved out of necessity and that's the truth.

In the early 60's,I remember pluggin' mics into whatever amp we were playin' through. I played a Farfisa combo organ through an Ampeg Portaflex,so I had to plug my mic into my buddy's Magnatone. We did drool over the Shure and Bogen PAs that were available at the time,but money was an issue.
