Electro-Harmonix Tube Factory in trouble
It looks like the Russian vacuum Tube factory owned by Mike Matthews' company Electro-Harmonix, is having some political problems. The story is that some powerful Russians want to take over the factory and low-balled an offer. When Matthews wouldn't bite, they started harassing him by cutting the power. The factory makes the popular New Sensor tubes that I buy for my own tube amps. These tubes are better made and more reliable than their Chinese cousins. You can read the story as it appears in The Moscow Times

 

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

Harp Tab

A collection of songs and riffs that I’ve worked out over the years, plus some libraries of stuff I’ve converted to tablature. I’ve included most of the notes and instructions that helped me when I was learning to play blues harmonica.
