The Harp Train 10 is a 10 watt amp that drives a 10 inch speaker and is designed for harp. The amp is a singled-ended design and utilizes a 12AX7 preamp and a 6L6GC power tube. This amplifier offers plenty of overdrive, rich vintage tone and more than enough bottom punch. A dust cover is included.
The Harp Train 10 was inspired by a desire to offer a true harp amp for the masses, an affordable amplifier that is voiced for harp and provides the gritty, compressed tone harp player's love. At the heart of the amplifier is the BALLS circuit, a truly unique circuit not found in any other amplifier. This circuit replaces a traditional tone circuit, providing a boost to the bass and lower mid-range frequencies. The increase in this frequency spectrum allows for the balancing of frequencies within the spectrum of the harmonica; you can have the bottom fatness you desire without limiting your tonal range.
The first stage of the 12AX7 preamp tube drives the BALLS circuit and the second stage drives the 6L6 power tube set to 10 watts. The power section drives the proprietary 10-inch speaker with a 20-ounce magnet and a 1 ½-inch voice coil. This speaker is loud and produces serious vintage tone. Probably the loudest small amp on the market, the Harp Train 10 also features a LINE OUT jack to run the amp through a PA.
The rectifier is solid state, which reduces heat and improves an amplifier's response over a vacuum tube rectifier. This amp does not have an over sized output transformer like other harp amps. Why you may ask? Take a look at any vintage amp, and you will see an output transformer designed for the load and not over designed. The output transformer is a critical component to the tone the amp produces, and our transformer is selected to optimize vintage tone. Controls are simple, LOUDNESS and BALLS, or you could say volume and bass boost.
Although this is a small and inexpensive amplifier, do not think for a minute this amp is just for beginners. The tone produced by the Harp Train 10 is studio quality; and using the LINE OUT feature into a PA, you can play any venue. The Harp Train 10 is not an amp you will outgrow. This amp is affordable enough to buy two, and by using The Terminator to split the signal, you can produce stereo sound on stage and double your projected sound. The amp weighs 22 lb and measures 10" deep, 15" wide, and 15" tall.
Truly a unique harp amp, it provides a punchy, fat, vintage tone while being the most affordable harp-specific amplifier on the market.

I've had my amp for about a month. Haven't had a chance to play out with it yet, but I'm excited about doing so. I'm playing through a Bulletini and the sound is rich and just-right dirty. I'm setting the Balls dial below halfway and I really like it. I also like the simplicity of the 2 controls. Size of the amp is just right, and it seems to have plenty of volume. My other main amp is a Super-Champ x2 that is getting some mileage on it, not as dependable as I'd like. The Harp Train 10 compares very favorably with the x2 but looks like it's going to be easier to dial in. First place I'll use it is a jam with some pretty loud guitarists--I think it will hold its own rather well. I'm playing now in a room about bedroom size and I can get fairly loud before feeding back. I've got a Harp Shield to employ if feedback becomes a problem when I play out. The mic choice makes a big difference. An Audix Fireball-V sounds fine but not super exciting. The Bulletini is a strong marriage. Tried Shure 57 and 58 and they sound a lot like the Fireball. My Green Bullet is out of commission right now, but I expect it to pair well. No gigs for a couple more months. Final word: especially for the price, I am extremely pleased so far.
GREAT SOUNDING AMP. PERFECT FOR OUR BLUES BAND. Told my brother about the great deal on the blem, hopefully he will be ordering one too.

For the last few years I have been disappointed with the lack of affordable amps available for harp players. I was thinking about finding a amp head powered by 6L6 tubes and running it through a cab with 8 or 10 inch speakers. I had communicated with before about pedals but when I saw the Harp Train 10 and listened to the demo I realized Randy had already designed what I was looking for. The amp is built like a tank and you can't beat the price. All the staff at Lone Wolf are a pleasure to deal with as well. Thanks for a very pleasant buying experience. Dennis Smith
