hi everybody

Hello, I´m from Spain. First: sorry my poor english. I have just got a harp delay and a harp octave and I´m very pleased with both. It was very useful information and opinions read in this forum. Very good staff here! :)
I´ve only played amplified harp from one year and a half, usually collaborating with a couple of rock bands. Nice to meet high level harp players like people here!

regards

Hi and welcome to the forum. There's some really great people on here who are very generous with their knowledge and willing to share it with those of us who want to learn more. There are some very good harp players in Spain. The most well known is probably the great Victor Puertas from Barcelona. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBuS-XeU2z0

Hi and welcome to the forum. Hope you enjoy you new pedals!
What on earth was I thinking when I played THAT?

Howdy from Texas, Rafa. That Harp Octave is a good secret weapon for life in a rock band 8)

See if you can find a long delay setting that synchronizes with your natural vibrato--that is a rock delay sound that John Popper likes to use and makes the simplest things you play sound great. I use it on soul ballads too.

¡Victor Puertas! 8) Do you know Mingo Balaguer? He is closer to me (Sevilla) and I admire him from I was a teenager:

Thank you, Stephen, for your advice. I will try to get it. I´m novice with harp pedals (little more than a month) and still thinking about the order to chain the octave and the delay :roll:

I hadn't heard of Mingo Balaguer before. It's always good to discover new players. :)
