Remember when I said the whole 5 watt amp thing was a trend, and showed how lazy these music companies are.

here's another one but voiced for Harmonica players.




Will probaly be good for some guitar players too, with the lower gain pre-amp tube, the spring reverb and hand wired construction. Eventhough for $279.99, god knows who is doing the construction.

I'm curious about the tone control. Could be that counter-clockwise is a simple hi-pass-to-ground deal like in a guitar, and clockwise is like the mid resistor in a 2-knob stack where the hi-low knob values are fixed. The XLR output is interesting. Celestion speaker too.

If "hand-wired" means point-to-point, these are just begging to be modded a million different ways. If it merely means that they connected the printed circuit board to the transformers by hand.... well then.
I wonder about the low-gain tube. More crunch at lower volume, I guess?

I dig the spring reverb in the 5watter..... could be a cool buy for practice.

Same here.

According to this site, Hohner's also offering a wireless harmonica mic system that's basically a tiny mic and antenna you strap to your hand. Nothing to do with guitar, but mildly interesting.
