The Roly Platt Harp Wah evolved from Roly’s need for a device that could produce consistent and controllable wah and mute effects on the harmonica. After experimenting with various ad hoc implements (cans, cups and mugs) he decided that he needed something better, and thus the Harp Wah was born!
Constructed from anodised and polished aluminium, the Harp Wah not only looks and sounds great but will also stand up to a lifetime of use. Almost all ten hole diatonic harmonicas will fit in its input slot, and wider harmonicas, such as low low tuning Seydels will also work with a slightly modified grip.
The Harp Wah has great projection and allows the player to create a whole range of sounds that would be extremely difficult to achieve in a consistent and controllable way through standard playing techniques and mechanisms.
With a design that works well with all sizes of hands and is suitable for left and right handed players, the Harp Wah has a natural feel to which you quickly become accustomed.
In short, it’s a perfect way of getting a whole range of new tones and expressions from your harmonica.
