Boris Plotnikov from Russia

Postby Boris_Plotnikov » Mon Feb 08, 2010 7:46 pm

I was born in 1984, July 29, Ekaterinburg, Russia. I start to play harmonica at age of 16. I play both diatonic and chromatic, but prefer diatonic. I customize harmonicas for myself, and use overblow technique and chromatic possibilities of diatonic harmonica. Sometimes I use a lot of stompboxes to allow harp to sound like a guitar or organ or any strange sound

I play with jazz big band and jazz-rap band Vinnebago.

I give personal harmonica lessons both offline and online by skype boris.plotnikov

My rig:

Harmonicas: diatonic Hohner Golden Melody (favorite) and Special 20 harmonicas, customized by me (embossing, arking, gaping, waxing), also some seydels, Hohner MS and Lee Oscars, but don't buy any of them anymore. Chromatics: super chromonicas for gigs, some chromettas and chinese chromatics for practice and some hering chromos for studio

Mics: Shure SM57 (for dirty amped playing, blues, rock gigs, usually stright to amp), Audix Fireball V (for clean and soft overdrived playing) , Sennheiser e835 (acousting playing, amp micking).

AKG Transformer (SO40+SR40) Wireless, Audix T50k impedance transformer

Stomps: Boss PS3 pitch shifter (for octaves), Lonewolf Harpdelay (want to buy V2), Electroharmonix Small Stone phase shifter, 2 (two) Lonewolf Harpattacks (one for backup), boss GE7 eq, mxr 6 band eq (as backup), ibanez pm7 phase shifter, ibanez de7 delay (have to replace with something better), yerasov pterodriver PD5 tube preamp if I have to play without amp, boss ls-2 line selector (to split to 2 amps).

Amps: yerasov gta15r (tube amp, replication of Fender pro JR) with Jensen c10q speaker and EHX tubes, sh*t solid state practice bass amp kustom kba10x (not so bad!), sh*t solid state 30w chinese amp Maniac 30, pretty sweet Danelectro Honeytone.
