Hey my friend TJ Clay is looking to amplify his rack mounted harp...he dosen't want the Strnad mic cause he wants to be able to play acoustically instantly during or right after the song...so he's looking to get that amplified tone through the PA without cupping or a cupping like device then be able to switch to clean... were going to try the harp commander and a mod pedal (Bassman) pedal tommorow, if it works the idea is he can switch those off almost instantly then get clean tone through the same mic!. But any suggestions here would be great!

Those Bottle of Blues Mics could work, Jon Gindick has used on in some videos I believe.
The compress knob on my HC model 1 will take it from clean when right
off to very growlly at that sweet spot about 2 o'clock. Sounds good
just by itself, he may not even need the Bassman pedal unless he's
after some delay fattening.
Harp Commander, sorry!
Ask Richard Sleigh how he does it! I saw him use a device like a cup mounted on the harp rack and he would point it either at sm58 (acoustic) or a bullet mic (amped sound) as required. He had the two mics on stands of course. The cup worked great for the amped sound. I have a pic somwhere. To my knowledge no pedals were involved.
You can use a Lapel mic or clip on AKG instrument mic with fx or the harp commander.
