[updated:LAST EDITED ON Jan-22-03 AT 07:52 PM (EST)]Hello Big Road Blues Members!

I just got back from the winter NAMM session in
Anaheim and saw a lot of new stuff that I'm hoping to
add to our web site after all of the details are
ironed out. For now we have two items I want to let
you know about right away.

The first is the reissue of the Hohner Trumpet Call
harmonica. This is the cool looking harmonica with
the five brass bells that is much sought after by
collectors. We now have the reissued model in stock
for immediate delivery. You can see pictures and get
all of the information here:

The second is the Hohner XB-40 Omni Bender. I saw
some at the show and Rick Epping played his for me - a
lot of notes there on that small harmonica! For those
of you that don't know about this one, it has a
special reed setup that allows you to bend at least 2
half steps on EVERY hole, both blow and draw! We
expect to be able to begin shipping them around the
end of February. I have put the XB-40 on the web site
for pre-ordering, so you can go ahead and reserve the
ones you want. You can see details detalis and
pictures here:

I'll send out another note in a few days to let you
know about the other new stuff we will have available soon.

Regards,
PappyJ

The Trumpet Call is one of the maddest things I have ever seen - I love it.

I suppose playing the Trumpet Call through a bullet mic is out of the question...you would have to have some awfully LARGE hands! Too cool.

Separate mics for each bell...

The Trumpet Call looks pretty cool. It would be a great novelty item for a gig. I could imagine Whammo (from the Asylum Street Spankers) playing one.
