What is the difference between the One and Two? Is the One worth buying?

I wouldn`t either.I was just wondering because this Model One I saw was 60 bucks.The person claimed to not know anything about it.Said it`s been around the house for ever.

I do want an amp and mic from Greg.Finances are the issue right now.

If you can get a Model 1 in ANY shape for $60, buy it. If you don't want it I'll buy it from you for $75 for your troubles. You should assume, no matter WHAT the owner says or thinks, that it needs a rebuild to be right. I KNOW THESE THINGS TO BE TRUE.

Unfortunately it got sold out from under me. Finances are tight and I couldn`t get it all in time.Just found out it`s gone.

Harpaholic said a mouthful and he's right. They ALL need to be recapped. They should have 3-wire power cords installed. The main tremelo cap on Model 2's usually needs replacing. There are other things as well. Most importantly, if you haven't worked on a bunch of them AND play harp - how will you know whether they're "right"? I know it sounds self-serving but you really are better off to get them from me - or send it to me to make right.

Big Daddy Ray, I have a Mic and a Kalamazoo from Greg, not bought at the same time. In fact my wife surprised me with the amp and both Greg and Jason Ricci suggested the line out. I don't need anything else, but a harp teacher.

Abner there are so many good tutorial videos on Youtube.That`s where I learned a lot. Especially from Jasons videos.

Thats how I found Jason, then I heard he had a band, then I saw he plays down my way a lot, then I went to all his shows.

abner (BluEyes, man can you imagine a private one on one with jason teaching)

Greg I never really read the whole page about your Kalamazoos.Considering the average base cost of one and what you do to it yours are surely worth every cent.I`d probably also get the line out addition.

I`ve been trying to save up for one of your ultimate mics,now I have something else I gotta save up for,lol.
