What do you guys think of this product. I play a small-mid size room every week with a decent PA. I have horrible luck working outa harp sound outta my guitar amp that can be heard in there. When I go through the pa it's loudenough but I lose my tone and overdrive. This pedal sounds like it's the solution to that. Think it'll work? Would a Green Bullet sound good through it or should I stick with SM57? I hope someone can review this product because I'm seriously thinking about buying one. Thanks :)

I really like this thing. Not perfect for PA, but OK. Enough loud without feedback, bluesy, overdriven, but a bit rough. It's almost perfect when I plug them to big solid state guitar or bass amps!

... I think it'll work with Green Bullet, maybe even better than with SM57 (as GB has rolled off highs).

Right on, Harpaholic. That sounds promising. Does it make a difference if you have a DI or can I go out of the pedal directly into the PA and get the same results?

Okay... I just broke down and ordered a Lone Wolf Harp Attack! :) It should arrive early next week and I'll probablybe playing throughit by nextWednesday's jam. I'm excited! Maybe this means I wont have to lug an amp around that a doesn't give me much volume bofore feedback. We'll see how it goes. Thanks for your feedback fellas.

Ps: I didn't order the ac adaptor. You can play it with normal batteries, right? Will a single 9volt do the trick?

SWEET! My LWHA pedal arrived in the mail today! Upon first tweaking with it I'm finding that tone all the way down or almost all the way down is a good way to go. I also found that a 520DX through it is noisey and more proned to feedback while the SM57 is cleaner and able to get greater volume before feedback but doesn't sound as "Bluesey." What settings do you prefer, Harpaholic, anyone else with this pedal? WHat should I experiment with rig-wise and how can I get the most outta this cool little pedal?

What is a DI?

Thanks for rosponding, Harpaholic! I played it last straight into the pa channel, no DI, with tone alomost all the way down and drive at a bout three quarters, 3 o clock (I'll try lower next time, as you recommended). It sounded GREAT! It enhanced my tone and volume in that particular room through that particular pa. It's the place I jam most frequently so I am so far pleased with my investment. Yeah I found while messing with it at home that the Bullet mic is noisey and tricky to work with. I figured that's a real gamble in a live setting so I stuck with a standard 57 and it sounded fine. Thanks again for your feedback (no pun intended) on the HA. I'm sure it'll be a central component to my setup for a long time to come.

Peter H:

DI=Direct Input. It's an auxillary box with an input that connects to the pa. I originally thought it just made it easier to plug stuff in when playing live with a lot of people going through the pa or with bigger stages but now I'm hearing it has other functions in terms of balancing signals and what not. I don't know much about it but if you have sound guy or gear head friends you can ask them more about Direct Input or DI.
