    Thanks for sharing this Udo…that just makes me smile looking at it! I have been listening to you all play amplified and loving the sound so much! But I guess I have been wrapped up in my own harmonica process to think further on it… Till now that is…Way to light me up! I know I said it but seriously that just looks exciting especially cause I have never plugged in my harp before. Is that amp specific for harmonicas? I don’t know anything about amps… Can you plug another instrument into it as well? And Mitch’s DynaMic… What do the knobs do on it? Thanks Udo and due to my lack of knowledge on the subject…please feel free to answer any questions that I don’t know I should be asking!

    Shawn,

    I got my first amplifier last Friday and unpacked it on Saturday. I never played amplified before _üé_
    The recordings I have posted all went straight into the MacBook either via built-in microphone or the DynaMic.

    The amplifier is a Spark model from Positive Grid. What I like is the combination with a really powerful app.
    For me this is a perfect match, which gives me much room to explore new sounds while playing my harp.

    The DynaMic is dead simple and very powerful at the same time. It has an on/off switch and a distortion switch. The sensitivity is controlled by the potentiometer.

    I am interessted to learn what gear the others are using.
    Hey guys: What’s your setup?

    Congrats on the amp and whatever you were doing pre-amp it sounded great! So am I understanding you right that you can hook up the DynaMic and play it through your computer? Your playing always sounds so clear. And thanks for the inspiration I am going to have to eventually get an amp and explore this new arena. Have fun on your amped harpin!

    The adapter has a plug that combines microphone and headphone wiring.

    You can even record the DynaMic with your phone if it has a 3.5mm headset interface.

    You can hook the DynaMic through an analog interface to the computer input/output jack. I use an iRig adapter designed for electric guitars and the like.
