Wood vs Plastic
Oh boy, This is just my opinion based on my experience. To me its like the ford chevy argument. I have yet to hear someone say to a harp player, "man you would sound so much better if you used a wood bodied harp" in reality almost no one can tell them apart. I know that wood harps swell and can cut you like a saw blade. I know they leak like a sieve, if not why is there a cottage industry in sealing them and making them air tight? People dip them in everything from pair wax to owl shit to wiskey to try and seal them up. The bottom line is if it makes you feel good playing the same harp Little Walter played, Go for it. When you reach the point where a wood bodied harp is all that will make you sound better and you can play everything, you will know enough you wont have to ask this question...................All the best to ya..bluz
