You too ? Ha ! Yeah I have a couple brass dan-moi's from Vietnam. Jews harp (and spoons) are some of my main things. Got two USA-made Whitlow j-harps, one in G and one in E, those are my gigging harps. I can finesse other keys out of them. Recently picked up this interesting resonator harp, made in IndiaDrumGerry said:Love the Washboard Serenaders/Rhythm Kings etc. I bought some thimbles, but never got round to buying the board! Too much clutter in my place as things stand. I play spoons and 'dan moi'. Started on Jaws Harp but chipped a tooth so went with the 'safer' (bloody lethal edges to the vibrating blade!) dan moi option.
As energy becomes more expensive, surely there'll be a drive for more folk/acoustic orientated performers? There's been a little bit of a folk revival among young kids in the UK, so things look promising.
Cool! I'll be looking for that for sure! I haven't actually got a lot washboard recordings, but I did pick up one by a US group called Juggernaut which is a great CD. Don't know if they're still around, I must keep an ear out...JoePasko2002 said:
It's not the loudest jews harp in my collection, but it does have a distinctive 'buzzy' sound. A good harp for melodic playing.DrumGerry said:Joe, that Indian harp looks pretty cool. Is it simply louder, or does it have a unique sound?
It was a helluva lot of fun .. and as I mentioned, I got paid to have fun.DrumGerry said:Looks like a lot of fun Joe!
