For just moving things around town and such, Try The Le Cover Co.
(800-228-3878) or if you are looking for road cases, Discount
Distributors (800-346-4638) is a good choice.

< > this type of accessor>>

I found out a little something a few years ago that changed the way I buy amp

Most of the commercial covers ary vinyl or plastic. They stink. They are
brittle when cold, tear easily, and don’t last long.

I went to a local place that makes boat covers. They have nylon, canvas, and
other materials that are thick and wear like IRON. They usually have a few
colors, too. I brought my amp with me, so they could measure. They made me a
cover…..yhou know, the kind that fits over the top pof the amp and allows the
amp handle to come through. Kind of like the cover on Mom’s toaster when I was
a kid….

The last one, for a Matchless SC-30, cost me $45.00. It’ll outlast any of
the mass produced ones by YEARS.



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.
