      Hohner Hoodoo Wireless Harmonica Mic and Amp with 5ft Cable (501769)

A 5W, Class A, hand-wired tube amp and wireless mic system expressly for harp.

This cost-saving bundle for harmonica players features the Hoodoo Box 5W Harmonica Tube Amp, Hoodoo Harmonica Wireless Microphone System, and a 5-foot 1/4" straight phone plug cable.

Hoodoo Box 5W Harmonica Tube Amp

The Hoodoo Box is a 5W, Class A, hand-wired tube amp combo designed especially for harmonica players. Built from the ground up to produce the fat, distorted tones that are the cornerstone of the electric blues harp sound, it is equipped with a single EL84 power tube and a 12 AX7 plus 12 AU7 tube complement in the preamp stage. Its classic spring reverb will add drama and air to your performances while the Celestion Super 8 8" speaker is especially suited to reproduce the entire range of harp tones. The XLR direct output can be used for recording or as a send to the front of house PA.

The Tone control helps you dial in the right sound with a range that goes from Dark to Bright to Scooped, the latter setting giving you a flat-out, heavily distorted sound. The Hoodoo Box will bring out the best in your harp technique as well as your mics. From growls and soulful wailing to dynamic virtuosity, the Hoodoo Box will bring these sounds and more to your harmonica playing.

The roadworthy Hoodoo Box cabinet features classic styling with rugged Tolex covering, white piping, and special Hohner grille cosmetics.

Hoodoo Hand Harmonica Wireless Microphone System
Consisting of a bodypack transmitter with belt clip, a dual diversity UHF receiver, and the innovative Hoodoo Ring microphone, the Hoodoo Hand Harmonica Wireless Microphone System frees you from being tethered to your microphone. You can roam the stage while enjoying perfect mic placement at all times.

The Hoodoo Hand system allows you to use your natural hand cupping and playing techniques while eliminating the need to deal with bulky bullet-style wired microphones that have traditionally been the primary choice for live performance among blues harp players. The patented Hoodoo Ring Microphone is a tiny Lavalier mic that's been tweaked to produce the low-fi, overdriven sound most blues players crave, while still being capable of producing relatively clean output when the music or your style requires it. The mic nestles in a clip with two finger holes that slip over your middle and ring fingers. Hohner includes two clips with different finger hole diameters to fit a wide range of finger sizes. The beauty of the design becomes obvious the moment you begin playing. Without a bulky mic occupying most of the cavity formed by your cupped hands, an acoustic space is created for producing a wide range of effects like flutters and tremolos. And because it's easy to create a tight seal between your hands and mouth, your sound has all the punch and dynamics you could hope for.

The dual-diversity UHF-band receiver has both 1/4" and balanced XLR outputs so you can send your signal to either an amp or the PA. The front panel has a convenient rotary volume knob for fast onstage adjustments and indicators for power, normal and peak signal levels, and lights that indicate which antenna is in use.

The system comes in a durable plastic travel case and includes a magic Hoodoo drawstring bag for accessories.

5-ft. Cable
This cable's flexible materials cuts down on kinks and twists for tangle-free performance and longer life. Quality soldering is very quiet. It has 1/4" straight phone plugs.

  • My compliments to Hohner

    As reviewed by Ed Thornton on 5/30/2010

    If I had any regrets about buying the Hoodoo amp and its Wireless Microphone it is that I did not buy it sooner, I could not be more satisfied with the quality of sound coming from this little amp. If I had it all to do again I would have saved considerable amounts of cash in my search for the ultimate, warm, fat, scooped sound, the ability to go fat and quickly clean is as simple as not cupping your hand or you can adjust the easy to use dials. I recently recorded 2 CD's, one without the hoodoo system! One with! ( I did not like the one without). The difference was night and day, the studio tech was very impressed, we used a 609 silver SENNHEISER Amp Mike and lost none of the sound quality. It was to say the at the very least amazing. I'm no tech as far as electronics are concerned but I do know sound, and when it comes to Harmonicas, even more! Yes it is a five watt amp, and that is exactly why I did not buy it for so long, I just did not believe I could get the sound I desired from such a small box! WRONG! The dials are great, set in the button are red indicators (not lighted) they do not need to be, any light whatsoever reflects, and on stage they are easy to read, making adjustments sweet! There is a direct out XLR and it is a choice for the artist. I am a musician who prefers to get the sound straight from the speaker but the direct out is I am sure just as satisfying . The Celestion super 8 speaker does the job very well. I Especially enjoy the appearance of this little guy, a strong handle, mat black metal protected corners, white piping trim, solid construction,. There really is nothing I do not like about this amp. Now the wireless microphone system is another remarkable little piece of creation, its 1 piece 2 finger ring is comfortable and the tiny mike is perfect for getting all of the effects we harp players tend to lose cupping a big green bullet in our hands, much better barking clucking ect... the ability to play without having to worry about dropping the mike while trying to do hand movements is fantastic. All in all I give it a 5 Stars without question!

  • OK for practice, Not Powerful Enough for Gigs

    As reviewed by Jack Spratt on 7/5/2010

    We have had guys bring this system into jams, and it is simply not powerful enough. Yes, you can run it through a PA, but you lose the grit when you don't use the speaker. This is not an amp a serious player would use and no one does.
