If you’re looking for a gift idea for a harmonica player, here are a few of great products.
Aston Stealth – Dynamic Studio Microphone
This is the microphone I now use for my harmonica session work and videos.
- Very solid/quality build – great detailed sound quality
- Stealth’s active mode boosts the signal by a colossal 50dB!
- Four switchable voices allow you to change mic tones, without changing mics
- Aston Stealth’s competition comes in the form of the Shure SM7B, the Procaster and the RE20, but none of these alternatives match the versatility of the Aston microphone.
AKG K701 Open-Back, Reference Studio Headphones
- They sound like you’re listening to speakers in a room – very natural sound.
- These are amazing. So comfortable you’ll forget you are wearing them.
AKG K 240 MK II Studio Headphones
The workhorse of 1000’s of top recording studios around the world.
- Semi-open back design for solid bass and airy highs
- Best headphones in this price range
- Built to last and very comfortable
Caline 20W Rechargeable Harmonica/Guitar Amp
I love this little gem. The amp looks like a toy but the sound is just great and the built-in delay is awesome as well. Loads of features.
- For Practice or Performance
- Great for practice, teaching, smaller performances (surprisingly loud)
- Delay and Distortion
- Aux in (play along to music from phone or music player)
- 2x10W Speakers (surprisingly loud)
- Headphone Jack out (pleasantly quiet!)

Roly’s CD – Inside Out
What Folks Say…

– Mickey Raphael
“Best Recordings of the Year” (Début CD – Inside Out)
– MapleBlues Magazine
