Mark Baier at Victoria Amps sells them, both bare and loaded with components.
I think you can also find a limited selection of them in the Mojo Musical
Supply catalog.

Most large CASE makers, e.g. Anvil, etc also make black fiber drum cases.
This material, although slightly thinner than original will serve well.
It is very tough, and you will have to drill holes for the grommets
(eyelets) which are ordinary brass grommets available at complete hardware
stores. Make sure they are solid brass and not merely brass plated. Get
an eyelet “setter” too, the tool you smash them down with. Tally Ho.


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 in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

Harp Tab

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.
