There really hasn’t been any usable products on the market that provide effects for “acoustic” harmonica playing. Now I have a Pro solution I carry in my harp gear bag – the Harp Wah. The Harp Wah is a product that I originally developed just for myself, out of a need to find an easier, […]
I love using the Harp Wah on Funk tunes. It’s way more than an effect for “old-timie” tunes.
Simple demo showing how I use the Harp Wah in a tune like this. Not too much, just to add a little “something”.
Hear the difference between regular hand cupping and the Harp Wah™ “cup mute” in a side by side comparison.
“Roly Poly” w/ the Harp Wah Always loved country swing. Asleep At The Wheel, one of my favs.
“The Harp Wah is a cool, expressive tool for acoustic harp players, with a learning curve near zero.”

It takes harp “muting” possibilities to a new level. Thanks, Roly!”
“Every harp player needs a Harp Wah to express themselves to the fullest!
Thank You Roly!!!”

Sounds Like a Trumpet Mute…
“Very much sounds like a trumpet mute… produces very crisp wah-wahs when you want.”
“Everyone loves it!”
“In my Intermediate Harmonica Course at Niagara College, I include the Harp Wah as part of my gear seminar.”

“On tour, I use the Harp Wah.
It’s just a great muted effect for harmonica! A great invention and a beautiful device!”
Marko BallandFrance's great
“This is THE sound I’ve been looking for in a cup style wah.”
I just received my Harp Wah, and I already love it!
It’s waaaay more comfortable to use than a coffee or tea cup, plus it’s much easier to direct the sound into a mic. I look forward to recording with it.

“I was skeptical … but this is a different beast with its own rich tone.
Definitely a valuable addition to the harp player’s toolkit.
Nice one Roly!”
As a Female Player…
As a female harmonica player with small hands, I found the Harp Wah very similar to the grip for holding a microphone and I did not need to use the grip tape provided.
Love it love it….love it. Cant say enough about it.

Do you need to practice harp at a lower volume?
I live in an apartment and use the Harp Wah to play quietly in the evening. It works!

A great investment!
It (the Harp Wah) arrived this morning and it is brilliant, everything promised and more. It adds a lovely tone to the playing, much better than cupped hands. I would certainly recommend everyone to get one, a great investment.
What a Wonderful Adaptation!
I always wanted to find a way to get the “wah” sound with a mug but got discouraged. This really makes it easy. Thank you!
