South Jersey Guitar Show and Flea Market


I made it late to this show and left early. I had to make it Harpin' Help to check out what was happening. I did come away with a Samson Wireless Guitar transmitter for $20 and pocket full of really odd microphone connectors plus some cheap tubes.

Here's a table full of odd mics. Most of these went for about $3 each.

They had a grab bag of mic connectors including some of the weird Cannon types. I bought a handfull for $10.

Here's a Premier 120 in great shape for $225. Luckily I had $60 in my pocket so I couldn't buy it.

The same guy had a great Silvertone Twin 12 for $300. When a guitar player tested this amp the other tables begged him to turn down.

Here's a picture of my favorite tube amp tech. Mike Dombrowski. He's out in Budd Lake, NJ. 201-400-0271. He's in the center. My weird friend Butch is on the left. He is acting strange, because I caught him the act of paying for something - this has been reported before, but never actually verified.

The show was a little small, but it only cost $5 to get in (and $30 worth of gas).

Here's some pictures of the show.


 

 

 

 

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

A collection of songs and riffs that I’ve worked out over the years, plus some libraries of stuff I’ve converted to tablature. I’ve included most of the notes and instructions that helped me when I was learning to play blues harmonica.
