What was a girl to do while he played the harmonica? Well Harp Widow was created out of the support and love of my "harmonica player" husband Jack. Passion or Obsession.. what's the difference? To this day I still don't know but whatever it is were having a great time. Traveling and sharing harmonica music with so many friends!! This year at SPAH 2012 I'll have some things for "her"....T shirts, hats, harmonica jewelry and earrings. Please stop by and say hello. It will be another great convention! See you soon!
Lone Wolf Blues Company is proud to offer a quality line of effect pedals for the harp player. The all original HARP ATTACK designed around a subminiature pentode tube producesses Bassman like tone, the HARP BREAK a distortion pedal that produces a tube-like distortion and has a bass boost for an awsome fat tone. The HARP TONE+ an outboard two band equalizer and volume control to fatten tone, add or lower volume and trim highs. The HARP OCTAVE a cool pedal that produces a raspy tone with a rich midrange that really cuts through a mix. The HARP DELAY is an awesome delay that adds a range of echo from the tiled room effect to slap-back to a distancing echo reverb. The lightly filtered echo produces a rich dark tone. Last but not least is the HARP V2 DELAY that passes an uneffected dry signal and adds an unfiltered echo effect to produce an unchanged tone for your highs as well as lows. These are the only effect pedals on the market designed specifically for harp.
