: : : : I speak only from Philly experiance. The harp is never loud enough. It seems that it's mid range qualities get drowned out and don't cut through the mix. I watched 3 harpists last night playing through a amp/shure set up and I could barely hear them. I thought I would be slick and go right through the PA but that too was 'solo we couldn't hear.' It seems if the drummer plays hard everyone turns up. If you play through an amp a crowded stage causes feedback. Sooo from now on I sing and play,that way I have the loud vocalist mike.
: : : : Any thoughts harpmen?

: : : : on your amp, do you have a place to put a foot switch so you can mute the feed back? I tried this the other day and it works really well, it doesn't really feed back while you are harping only when you stop. also try micing your and, maybe that will work, I do that when I use A amp and smaller than two 10's. I hope this helps

: Turns out I heard later that the sound man is kinda jealous and purposely turns harps down! Can you believe that shit ? This is a premier blues club in the City! (Life in the competitive Northeast..oh how I miss the South!)
: I'm considering buying the POD line 6 and pushing it through the PA. Next time I'll buy the sound man a beer. ;)
: That's some mest up crud. Yes the line 6 POD is very good, That's what my Bro Usis when he don't fill like carying in his AX2 in everywhere.
go for it, you might wanna check out the POD*2
it's got some new sounds in it. or you could buy the POD*1 and later have it upgraded. Whatever you wanna check out .
