About Honkin Harmonica

Welcome to Honkin’ Harmonica Shop. It all started…….

A long time ago I visited the grave of the late great Little Walter; the best blues harp player there ever was, period.  I closed my eyes and spoke to Walter; I said “Walter, how can I ever be as good a blues harmonica player as you?”

He said “Son, you can’t, but what you can do is spread the word of the most unique sounding instrument known to man, tell people about the Harmonica, tell people how great it sound when it’s amplified, you do remember I was the first to play harmonica using a mic through a guitar amp don’t ya? “Yes I replied”.

Walter continued “Help em to learn how to play, , help em choose the right microphone, make sure they look after their equipment, answer their questions, but there is one golden rule you must stick to; if they ain’t got the blues you can’t help em”.

I understood what Little Walter was saying and nodded to myself whilst muttering under my breath “If you ain’t got the blues you ain’t got no place foolin’ with it that’s for sure”.

Back home I thought long and hard about what Little Walter had said to me that day, how could I spread the word? Then it came to me suddenly,  ‘Honkin’ Harmonica Shop’, that’s how.

Hopefully I can help all blues harp players with everything they need, but don’t worry, I know you already got the blues, that’s why your here!

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of harmonica do you play to get that bluesy sound?

Easy, ditch your cheap 40 hole round the camp fire harmonica that you tried to play the Rocky theme tune on, it ain’t gonna work, you need a diatonic harmonica, they only come with 10 holes. This is all I play and pretty much all I sell.

Why does my amplifier feedback?

This is the harmonica players curse, it is difficult to control but here’s some tips. You may have either too much Hi or Low on the tone dial maybe but more often than not your too close or facing your amp, take a step back. Also you may be trying to play too loud, see next question.

When I play with a band I am never loud enough, why?

Bands with  drums and strutting guitarists will always smother the harp player, if you try to crank up the volume of your amp it will feedback, fact. Your band simply won’t turn down you set your amp to its best tone and mic it up, run a lead to the PA where the singer is screaming his guts into and trace your harp out the speakers, but remember don’t stand in front of them or face them either.

How do I clean a harmonica?

Some leave their blues harmonicas in a glass of water over night but if you forget you have a wood comb harp you will wake up and it will be twice the size. Simply tap and wipe your harmonica during and after use. Don’t go poking too far but you can remove some build up with a small screw driver of something of a similar shape.
