Vintage Japanese high impedance dynamic mic, volume control, with 15 foot cable. The shape of this mic makes it really easy to cup and get good compression ($40+ shipping)
Turner mic shell chopped, volume control with indents, crystal element, high impedance, paint in good shape, ¼ female connector ($60+ shipping) (note crystal elements are fragile, this mic works well and has been a backup in my gig bag for years, but I cannot guarantee it will survive shipping)
Shure Green Bullet 520DX shell, with 20 foot cable attached. Well used but connections in good working condition. Vintage crystal element ($50+ shipping) (note crystal elements are fragile, this mic works well, but I cannot guarantee it will survive shipping, I will send with a second crystal element that exactly fits the rubber gasket in the mic, and would just require a bit of soldering to replace element)
Audio Technica Freeway 200 VHF Guitar Wireless System 170.245 mhz. Used three times, did not end up using it in gigs like I thought, but it works just fine, and is in new condition. With original box and all parts sells for $100 new ($70 + shipping)
Free stuff (for shipping costs)
Bottle of blues-style (imic) microphone. Cobitone element, volume control, high impedance (already spoken for)

I have a Hohner 10 hole Chromonica that is prewar judging from the star on the cover plate. It is in very very good condition. There are a couple of valve flaps missing but overall this thing is nice. Is anyone interested in it?
I have a few brand new harps for sale in the UK (or states but not sure about postage etc!). I put them on ebay but can take them off! They are completely brand new (not even breathed on!).

I posted a Jimi Hendrix Octavio pedal on Ebay. I'm not sure if this is a good pedal for harp. I didn't care for it for harp, but I rarely use any amplification, distortion, etc. Perhaps it would be of interest to those of you who also play guitar? Here's the link:
I have a like new- played maybe 20 minutes- Hohner Chromonica 270, key of C. This was given me as a gift recently. I tried it out and decided I prefer other brands of chromatic harp better. It's been gently cleaned with 91% alcohol and is ready to0 go to a home where it will be better appreciated. Interested, message me and make an offer.
I have a stock of MB combs - some that will fit the classic MB and some that will fit the Deluxe/Crossover - coming from Dick Sjoeberg in the next two weeks. I have built harps with the GM model, but not the MB. I have no idea what colors I am going to be sent.
That being said, if anyone wanted to try a custom MB with one of the combs as a guinea pig, as I have way too many personal harps right now, let me know! I want to offer MB's using the Sjoeberg method, which includes a very cool brass piping, but want to have a few test driven before offering them through my site.
The main difference between these and the harps I do now are cosmetic. The reed work is pretty much the same although there are some unique to MB tweaks. When ready to go "public", I will have to charge over $200 for the final product to make money. The overhead and extra time are fairly large.
I am willing to build a handful at $180 plus shipping to get my feet wet and get some user feedback on the final MB product. I have no idea the turnaround time, but would estimate 3-6 months TOPS. While you can pick the key and tuning, the harp will be built to OB using Dick's specs, which is the only way I will ever offer these.
Also, I have a Buddha harp I am maybe willing to part with. I used it for one song at SPAH and maybe 2-3 times since. It is a Low F Special 20 with a reddish dymonwood comb. I don't really know why, but it was assembled with two bottom coverplates instead of a top and bottom. It is an EXCELLENT playing harp. It was made to order for someone else that ended up not having the funds for this Zen harp. I took it in place of a Low F Marine Band I had ordered due simply to the reduced wait time.
I am not a SP20 player, and although this is a fantastic harp, I have no need for it. I now have two other custom Low F's (which hardly get played) and several other Buddha harps that were built specifically for me I am holding on to. If the cover plates are an issue, I will order a new set and open them up for the buyer. Money from the harp is going directly to funding resources for my custom harps.
If you are interested in the harps please email me at mikefugazzi AT gmail DOT com.
I am about to get nailed with medical bills. I've had stomach issues for a few years now and had to go in for a wealth of testing in the last two weeks. The good news is I am fine, there is nothing life threatening, and the issues I am currently having are treatable. The bad news is I am not going to have enough if my flex account to cover the bills and we just paid to have our basement finished...and the endoscopy I had yesterday hurts like a $%^# still.
With a bit of reservation, but the desire to pull some weight around the house, I am going to put up three Buddha harps for sale here.
Marine Band in Db with striped comb - $300 (Other harps are no longer available)
I will offer free future maintenance on all these harps. I'll also share that radioactive eggs aren't all that bad and neither is radioactive Tang unless you have to slam 40oz in half an hour. Giving up caffeine, even when you only drink a can of diet pop a day sucks - double true when your kids are under three, lol.
Hi and thanks for letting me into your forum. I build custom effects pedals mostly for guitarists and recently a harp playing friend of mine asked to use one of my mini-valve preamp boxes for a gig. Torsten used his Hohner blue bullet mic thru the pre amp into a PA and easily dialed in a great sound where before it was hard for him to get some grit without maxing out the input of the PA. I have since tested it thru several tube amps and it really gives a fire to the sound. Warm-to-hot switching drives the front end of a tube amp from a creamy clean boost into a thick overdrive. It uses a normal -9vdc power pack (No battery) that drives a 18v charge pump to power the B+ voltage for the tiny 5840 tube. It has Pentode/Triode switching that is most notable in loud live situations with the triode setting giving a darker tone. It really gives life to the fuzz and wah pedals I have run into it. I heard it in a live situation pushing a Faustone Custom 30 watt amp last week and it really was impressive. The enclosure is hand-etched with a design by Edu Castles of London. It is called the Old Glass Fuzz, though not truely a 'fuzz' pedal it does fuzz out a bit at extreme settings. I am asking 250USD/155GBP/185Euro shipped. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post here with any questions. I will get some sound clips up soon if anyone is interested. Cheers, Chris
Just to let any UK (or any infact) harpers know that I have put some items on ebay. An RE10 mic, which has no reserve and is currently at 99p, A Masco MA25, a Lonewolf Harp Delay and an Eminence Lady Luck speaker. Only selling as I have to save up and buy a Levinson Blade guitar. Email me at lukejones33 at hotmail dot com
Ive got 4 Lee Oskar minor tuned harps I've barely touched. Am and Am natural, Em and Em natural. the 'natural minor' harps are labeled with the cross harp key, the regular minors withtthe straight harp key. Make me an offer. email@example.com ----------
I'm customizing more than just the 1847 now. I'm also offering the Seydel Blues Favorite and Favorite Black for $135.00 and the Seydel Blues Solist for $100.00. The Favorite comes in over 200 different tunings so there is something for everyone. The Solist is a really great platform. Very comparable to a Marine Band... and it makes a killer custom harp. Of course I still offer the 1847 and the price is $150.00. Shipping on all models is $5.00 Please feel free to contact me through my site: www.customseydels.com with any questions you might have.
Here are two videos of my valve premap pedal with harp. My playing has a lot to be desired but you can get a bit of an idea of the pedal. I will try to make another video this week thru a better amp and thru a PA also. Cheers, Chris
@El Musico Loco,No offense intended dude,I know you said your playing has alot to be desired,and I do appreciate your honesty,but if I were you I would try to seek out a harp player with skills to demo your product.Its hard to hear the nuances of the pedal with the playing that was demonstrated on the video.I could hear it with the guitar but with the harp I really couldn,t hear it.I,m just giving you my honest opinion.I just think it would make for a better presentation of your product.Good Luck,BTW it looks real solid and is definately a cool looking pedal.

As of February 1, I will be launching a new custom harmonica site and it will reflect changes in both materials and price. I can take on a couple of builds before the price change if anyone is interested. Even with the price change, my prices are still going to offer extreme bang for the buck and unrivaled reed work for their price point. Prices will range from $50 to $225. This includes a $75 Crossover model!
Changes will also include offering three stages* of Sjoeberg combs for Golden Melodies, Marine Bands, Marine Band Deluxes, and Crossovers. The Stage 1 will be available on my Flash GM's and MB's. Stage 2 will be available on the Chameleon GM's and MB's. The Stage 3, which will include a choice of silver or brass piping, will be the comb on all Mercury models - including MBD's and Crossovers.
All models except the Mercury offer a choice of comb types including standard design woods, composites, and acrylics.
In addition, I will be the US supplier for Sjoeberg combs and will have all three stages available through my site. I should actually have several dozen in stock and am hoping to be able to ship within a week or ordering. I cannot take orders on these for a few weeks until I organize the stock and finalize pricing.
Honestly, to keep my sanity, even after just a couple of months of going fully public, I am going to try and offer finished combs for sale rather than taking too many custom comb jobs. My hope is to be able to do custom work full-time in the summers, so in order to stock pile around those months, I will be taking limited builds the rest of winter/spring.
*Stage one is the Sjoeberg design composite comb. Stage two includes metal piping. Stage three has the piping and finish on it.
PS: While I pride myself in my overblow set-ups, I have quite a few options for all types of players...www.mikefugazzi.com/customharmonicas ---------- Mike Quicksilver Custom Harmonicas Updated 1/23/11

Hi NiteCrawler, No offense taken. :) I suck on the harp! I have a real good player coming over this weekend and I will do some good videos. Thanks for the constructive criticism and I hope you all can get a good idea of this preamp with new videos. Cheers, Chris
