Just so you know….

I’ve spent a good deal of time and energy writing about the new Mission Chicago harp amp. Just so you know, I have no financial or business interest in the amp. If you buy one, I don’t make any money. If you don’t buy one, I don’t lose anything.

I did have a lot to do with the development of the amp. I spent many hours over several months researching and helping design the amp, and in particular testing the amp with different components and configurations to get that perfect natural harp tone. I am very excited about the way it sounds. The thing rips. It is EXACTLY the amplifier that I needed but could never find.

The builder of the amp – Bruce Collins, the owner of Mission Amps – is a good friend of mine. He is also the drummer in my band, Roadhouse Joe. And I own the prototype; I bought it, and it is now my regular gig rig.

Rick - Do you know of any stores in Denver that sell Harmonica amps? I had the Hohner Hoodoo Box Harmonica Amplifier in mind - but am at a loss on where to go. Thank you. Russ, radhole@gmail.com

Russ, I can't think of any stores that sell harp amps. Certainly at Guitar Center you can find guitar amps that will work okay for harp, such as the Epiphone Valve Jr Half Stack. I don't know of any Harp Amps sold in any stores... they are all sold by the builder.

My strong recomendation would be the new Mission Chicago harp amp, made by Mission Amps here in Denver. www.missionharpamps.com

If you'd like a demonstration, let me know. Or, just come to the Blues Jam at Ziggies next Sunday.
