Rackit!™

“At last! Big-time blues harp amplification for rack players!
This is going to be a game changer.” --Jon Gindick

Jon Gindick is an American best-selling musical instruction author. His books, CDs, and videos on playing the blues harmonica have sold over 2,000,000 copies.
He owns and operates Blues Harmonica Jam Camp, a 5-day blues harmonica retreat for players of all levels in Clarksdale, Mississippi and Ventura, Califoria.


Most players know that cupping a harmonica microphone fattens your acoustic and especially your amplified tone. Unfortunately this is impossible for people whose hands are busy doing something else – like playing guitar, or for people with disabilities that prevent them from cupping a traditional mic. Rackit! cups the mic for you! And the built-in Bulletini™ mic has already earned high praise from beginners to pros. You get world class tone, hands-free! rackit

Don't believe it? Listen to these videos! You've never heard harp in a rack like this!

TJ Klay is an extremely talented musician dividing his time between Nashville, TX and San Diego CA.

TJ says:

I have been chasing an amplified rack tone set-up for years. Rackit! is the answer to my prayers! Even in a low volume acoustic setting you'll get a Big, Fat,BossHarp sound.”

In this video, TJ is running through a Lone Wolf Blues Harp Attack pedal into a 1965 pre-CBS Fender black face Princeton Reverb.

 

Juzzie Smith is a marvelous multi-instrumentalist juggling rack player and street performer from Australia. His one-man band performance videos on YouTube have millions of views and should not be missed.

It was Jon's book and accompanying cassette tape, that started me on harmonica eons ago.

Jon loves his Rackit! He says:

“At last! Big-time blues harp amplification for rack players! This is going to be a game changer.”

 

Here's another video of TJ Klay, this time showing how the Rackit! sounds when played into a PA. He is again using the Lone Wolf Blues Harp Attack pedal, this time straight into the PA.

 

More praise for the Rackit! from the pros... Big Jon Atkinson, perhaps best known as Kim Wilson's guitar player, is a multi-instrumentalist phenom equally at home on harp or guitar. Big Jon says:

“The Rackit! is well designed and is a perfect fit for anyone wanting to fatten up their tone in a rack.” Jimi Lee is an outstanding entertainer from Austin, TX. Here's what Jimi has to say about the Rackit!:

“Finally someone created a mic for harp in a rack that has great tone, and it's easy to switch harps. BlowsMeAway hit a home run with the Rackit!”

All Rackit!'s come with removeable tone control end caps. One is solid, the other has a hole allowing "wah" hand effects. When no mic is installed, install the solid plug at one end and the hole plug at the other - the hole plug is for your "wah" hand. When the Bulletini mic is installed, use the solid plug for "Huge" tone. Install the (holed) one for a slightly brigher, but still "Fat" sound with the possiblity of adding hand effects. For the cleanest acoustic tone, remove the end cap entirely.

  • Hohner HH-154*
  • Hohner MZ-2010 Flex Rack
  • Konig & Meyer*
  • Farmer Footdrums ArchTop and SideNote**

*These racks may have L-shaped tabs that prevent a harmonica from moving too far rearward. In some cases you can rearrange the rack so these tabs are on the front side – in which case the Rackit! will fit just fine. Otherwise, these tabs must be removed or bent straight to accommodate Rackit! Rackit!. prevents your harps from moving rearward.

**The Farmer Footdrums magnetic racks require installation of an Adapter Kit, sold separately. The kit provides a small steel bar with double-face tape that you mount in the “well” in Rackit!’s lower jaw to attract the magnet.
