Lone Wolf Blues Company – Boogieman Effects Pedal
Our wonderful friends at Lone Wolf have provided this great solution for performing harp players who like to travel light but still play with crunchy distortion. Regardless whether you use a backline amp or going straight into a PA, players can be confident they will be able to dial in some downright scary tone. (RRP guide $389.00) Winner: Aron Woodall, Bucks, UK
Battle Plan Harmonicas – Bullet Buddy
The Bullet Buddy has been designed with hands free use in mind. It is comfortable to use in a Konig & Meyer 14615 neck rack, bringing the mic’s element as close as possible to the harmonica for maximum ‘compression’ of sound. It can also be hand-held with or without the appropriate Ammo Clip mic adapter. (RRP guide £50.00)
Winner: Chris Bird, West Sussex, UK
Marine Band Harmonica (Key of C)
First patented in 1896, this iconic instrument embodies the blues like no other and is the benchmark against which every other harmonica is judged.

[6 separate prizes to win]. (RRP guide £37.99)
