THE NEW STANDARD IN HARMONICA MICROPHONES
It’s no secret that today’s harmonica microphones are sonically and physically lacking in comparison to their vintage counterparts. We set out to change that: Introducing the Harp Blaster HB52, an exciting collaboration between HOHNER and sE Electronics.
Instead of looking at competing products to sculpt the Harp Blaster’s sound, we took our inspiration from a select group of professional players. The goal was to create an exceptional mic ideally suited to their needs, engineered to uncompromising standards, combining fantastic sound quality with optimal ease of use and maximum durability. After all, if a microphone can become a seamless extension of the artist’s emotive output – rather than a distraction or an obstacle – the music can flow unhindered and achieve maximum sonority and expression. Together, HOHNER and sE chased down this ideal, creating a state-of-the-art product that will satisfy the most discerning harmonica player.
The Harp Blaster HB52 is a serious modern microphone using the highest quality components. Handcrafted completely out of metal, it boasts a specially designed dynamic element for the authentic vintage sound, a thick die cast body with zinc alloy parts and chrome detailing. Not only will it withstand the uniquely brutal conditions a harp mic can face on a nightly basis; it will do so while enabling vastly superior tone in comparison to other harmonica microphones.
