The Harp Wah™ by Roly Platt
Until now, the only way to get resonator “cup mute” effects was to raid the kitchen cabinets for cups, mugs or used tin cans.

I wanted something better.

Features:
  • Fully forward-facing design aims the sound directly out from you and into your mic
  • The Harp Wah™ becomes an extension of your regular hand cupping position – making it feel natural, with minimal effect on your playing style
  • Convenient to use – non-attaching
  • Shape focuses the sound into narrow, controllable field
  • Anodized polished aluminum – creating a safe, rock-hard and extremely durable finish – inside and out
  • Light weight and durable, for a lifetime of road-worthy abuse
  • Universal shape and gender-neutral size accommodates a wide range of harp players
  • For left or right-handed players
  • High-quality protective drawstring bag
  • Grip Tape (for players wanting a little extra torque while holding)
  • And of course, it sounds killer
 
Is the Harp Wah right for you?
The Harp Wah has been carefully designed to work for most diatonic players. Please read these considerations to ensure the best results.
 
Technical Considerations
  • The Harp Wah was specifically made for acoustic diatonic harmonica playing.
  • The design and “input slot” width will accommodate any standard diatonic model with a total cover height (thickness) of less than 23mm – all major brands tested fall well within this slot width and include standard models from: Hohner, Seydel, Suzuki, Lee Oscar. 12, 13, and 14 hole harps will work, but will have limitations. It is best used witha 10 hole diatonic.
  • Thicker harps: Even the overly thick models such as Seydel’s “Low Low” tunings with their wider cover plates work using a slightly modified grip.
     
Playing Style/Grip
  • The Harp Wah can be used by left or right-handed players but is not generally recommended for players who play with the low notes towards your fingertips (as opposed to the typical way – low notes towards the palm).
  • The Harp Wah™ was designed to work with what I call the “classic grip” hand positioning – with the harp held between the index finger and thumb. It may also work for players with an alternative grip, but please keep this in mind.
  • Customized harps and harps with customized covers will also work.
  • As with using any new device, some adaptation and practice is suggested to maximize the all available tones and effects of the Harp Wah.

“If harmonica was all he played, he’d still be a monster.”

Sandy is an incredibly versatile, high-level musician. If harmonica was all he played, he’d still be a monster, but incredibly, his talent extends beyond that, to Ukulele and Banjo as well. He is also a renowned instructor.

www.sandyweltmanmusic.comHey There Facebook Folks and Friends- Here it is, last post for 2017. This is my harmonica version of Auld Lang Syne. To add a little color into the mix, I’m also using my brand new harp mute designed and produced by my friend Roly Platt. Roly is a killer harmonica player and has come up with this brand new mute that I just got it in the mail yesterday and absolutely love it ( www.HarmonicaMute.com). I’ll be doing a future video dedicated to reviewing it more fully, but for now just enjoy the sounds. Have a safe happy and healthy New Year and many blessings to you for 2018.

“I just received my Harp Wah, and I already love it! This is THE sound I’ve been looking for in a cup style wah. It’s waaaay more comfortable to use than a coffee or tea cup, plus it’s much easier to direct the sound into a mic. I look forward to recording with it.”
