Here’s what I posted to AGA on the subject. BTW, I didn’t mention that
it could be reconed with a “standard” style surround. Or, if one were
skilled enough, just the surround could be replaced.

Same as P12N except surround has more flexible “accordion” style
surround. High frequencies are rolled off- not sure exactly where,
but it’s above the highest primary frequency of a guitar. Since I
find very high frequency harmonics very undesirable with electric
guitar, the sound is ideal for me (I use one in my 65 deluxe).
A very thick, rich tone. NOT a great speaker for someone who prefers
to emphasize a twangy, glassy tone.

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.
