|The Astatic JT-30 microphone is the perfect Harmonica mic for use with a vintage tube amps. It was created about 70 years ago and went out of production around the year 1999. These pages are devoted to enjoying, playing and learning Amplified Blues Harmonica, so the name JT30 is appropriate. Today there are many cool harp microphones. In the long run, it’s not the mic that counts, it’s what’s in your heart!

History of this page.
In the dawn of the World Wide Web (1994), harp player Keith Graham created the JT30 page. It started out as a home page for modifying JT30 microphones. Eventually the page became a catchall for microphones and amplified harmonica playing. You can see these pages at:
The Original JT30 Page
Now I have three pages for harp mics, harp tab and harp amps.

If you haven’t been checking out BassHarps Gig list, then you are missing out on great harp playing. If you are gigging and not on the list then you are probably playing to a half empty house.
