“Little Walter didn’t need any stupid pedals.” “just plug your mic into tube amp” Well, here is Little Walter kind of sound made by using modern equipment: quilter 101 (solid state amp), Nocturne Brain Junior Barnyard, Midnight Drive by Rodrigo A. González (rogonzab), Keeley Memphis Sun and cab with 6.5” speaker.

Sounds very convincing! How did Walter do it without any pedals? Maybe he was a time traveler and brought this gear back from 2021.

A great job Konstantin as usual.
I find it hard to wind up the reverb to the kind of levels Little Walter used.
It's not a sound you hear many harp guys use at all these days in my experience.
I like it, I'm going to have to have a rethink about using it, but very sparingly and with the right track!

I've been wondering how the Keely Memphis Sun would sound with harp. It's definitely more of a Sun/Chess studio reverb than a Fender tank. I like it.

thank you all for kind words!
Rhartt1234, it has built in filters and colours the tone, but I like the final sound.
