Harmonica Vibrato “Embouchure” Style: Roly Platt
There are several ways to get vibrato on Harmonica.
The “embouchure” style vibrato is probably what I use the most. Here’s some tips on how I achieve it and use it.
“In my Intermediate Harmonica Course at Niagara College, I include the Harp Wah as part of my gear seminar.”
It’s just a great muted effect for harmonica! A great invention and a beautiful device!”
I live in an apartment and use the Harp Wah to play quietly in the evening. It works!
“Very much sounds like a trumpet mute… produces very crisp wah-wahs when you want.”
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.
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.
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.
It takes harp “muting” possibilities to a new level. Thanks, Roly!”
Definitely a valuable addition to the harp player’s toolkit.
Nice one Roly!”
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!
Thank You Roly!!!”
“The Harp Wah is a cool, expressive tool for acoustic harp players, with a learning curve near zero.”
