Some years back, I had the opportunity/necessity to do some busking at Granville Market in Vancouver. A great place to busk, loads of tourists & pedestrian traffic etc.. My friend on Guitar and vocals had no problem being heard, but my harp just faded into the background noise.
Since then, I have often thought of creating a solution to that problem. In the 90's I played a 'busker festival', and made a megaphone out of carboard and coat hangers. It attracted some attention, but didn't really do anything audible.
Fast forward to 2020, the time of covid. I spent a good deal of my lockdown time learning 3D modeling and drafting and put them to use to create bbq bo's HarProjector, coming soon to ebay. Check it out in my Youtube demo:

Music and travel destroy prejudice.

That is cool. I think there's a market for it. Both for buskers and those playing off the mic through an amp or PA. Could be used for good effect I think.

I'm workin on it. I'm workin on it.

You could probably fashion some kind of mute attachment similar to a trumpet mute

For me this is a case where YouTube's compression of audio has probably misrepresented this product as I hear no difference. I would love to see / try this out at the next in person SPAH convention.... whenever that will be
