Now For Something Completely Different #1-Amplification

Happy New Year Riff Raffers and now for something completely different.

This year on the first of each month I will feature a short article(s) under the banner of, Now For Something Completely Different. It will be a little quirky while honouring the history of the mouth organ in Australia and beyond. Our first NFSCD’ (for abbreviation purposes) is a time honoured concern for mouth organ/harmonica players whether it be busking or blowing in a band, the need for more volume (without feedback!).

What about this one? It even has a mini drum for percussion.

How about making one yourself?

(The Age’ 11 June, 1937)
