I want to provide the very best service to all my customers. Here is some information on shipping options which will help you make the best choice for your needs and expectations.If ordering from countries other than Canada or the USA, I recommend "Tracked Packet".
Small Packet AirSmall Packet Air for shipping is less expensive but has no tracking and no guarantees on how long delivery will take. I've seen this method take as little as 5 days and as much as 6 weeks (rarely).
Tracked PacketTracked Packet is more expensive but does send tracking info to your provided email address. Depending on the country, it can take between 5 to 10 business days. These products ship from Canada and on both of these shipping options, Customs can hold things up on occasion unfortunately.
- The Harp Wah was specifically made for acoustic diatonic harmonica playing BUT, have a look at this demo of a Chromatic being used.
- The design and "input slot" width will accommodate any standard diatonic model, (including 12, 13, 14 hole models) with a total cover height (thickness) of less than 23mm – all major brands tested fall well within this slot width and include standard models from: Hohner, Seydel, Suzuki, Lee Oskar.
- Thicker harps: Even the overly thick models such as Seydel’s “Low Low” tunings with their wider cover plates work using a slightly modified grip.
- Higher notes on a 12, 13 or 14 hole model will extend beyond the Harp Wah's slot length – but the most important holes 1-6 work great.
- The higher notes (above holes 1-6) on any harp are not as "affected" as the lower notes by the nature of the higher frequency, less resonating reeds.
- The Harp Wah can be used by left or right-handed players but is not generally recommended for players who play with the low notes towards your fingertips (as opposed to the typical way – low notes towards the palm). In that case, success would be dependent on your grip and adaption.
- The Harp Wah™ was designed to work with what I call the “classic grip” hand positioning – with the harp held between the index finger and thumb. It may also work for players with a alternative grips, but please keep that in mind.
- Customized harps and harps with customized covers will also work.
- As with using any new device, some adaptation and practice is suggested to maximize the all available tones and effects of the Harp Wah.

“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!”
“On tour, I use the Harp Wah.
It’s just a great muted effect for harmonica! A great invention and a beautiful device!”

“Every harp player needs a Harp Wah to express themselves to the fullest!
Thank You Roly!!!”

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.
“Everyone loves it!”
“In my Intermediate Harmonica Course at Niagara College, I include the Harp Wah as part of my gear seminar.”

“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.

“Best harmonica innovation in a long time.
It takes harp “muting” possibilities to a new level. Thanks, Roly!”
“It’s just perfect. Fantastic sound and very expressive!”
It’s the best wah sound effect I’ve ever tried – beautifully designed and easy to hold in your hand.

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!

Sounds Like a Trumpet Mute…
“Very much sounds like a trumpet mute… produces very crisp wah-wahs when you want.”
“The Harp Wah is a cool, expressive tool for acoustic harp players, with a learning curve near zero.”
Richard HunterBest-Selling Harmonica Method Author – US Session Player
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.
