Harp Shield

Shut the gate on feedback with the Harp Shield. The Harp Shield works by using noise gate technology to disconect the mic when you are not playing, supressing feedback.

ABOUT
Audio signals from the amplifier's speaker are picked up by the microphone and fed back into the amplifier where it is amplified again resulting in what we know as feedback; the Harp Shield will prevent this process from ever starting by using noise gate technology. The Harp Shield is designed to mute the microphone when you are not playing by decoupling the microphone from the amplifier, thus preventing feedback. With the Harp Shield, your microphone is muted when not playing. As you begin to play, the Harp Shield will unmute and allow your signal to pass through to the amp; when you stop playing, the pedal automatically mutes the microphone to prevent feedback. The pedal has a SENSITIVITY control to prevent background noises from opening the audio path and inducing feedback. In the event that feedback does occur, just press the footswitch (a momentary switch) to reset the pedal and stop the feedback. When using this pedal, it is still necessary to use proper microphone handling techniques to help prevent feedback while playing. The Harp Shield differs from guitar noise gates in that the gate range is set for microphone levels and the fact that you will not lose any tone.


POWER
The Harp Shield operates off of a 9V battery or a 9V DC power adapter. To make it all just a little easier Lone Wolf is offering a power supply for US and EURO customers to power your pedal. The DC adapter requirements are a 9V DC with a minimum 100mA output and a 2.1mm x 5.5mm connector with a negative center surrounded by a positive outside. The battery is switched OFF when an external power supply is used, and the unit is always powered whenever the mic is plugged in. The power adapter is sold separately.

I have 3 Lone Wolf pedals and am generally satisfied. Make sure you test both power supply options on your pedal when you receive it. I have had my harp shield for a few years and used it a handful of times using the adapter for power. I recently switched to using the battery option which didn't work; and the battery becomes extremely hot when connected. I emailed Lone Wolf explaining the situation and did not get a response. I assume I am stuck for repair costs as it is way past the warranty ti [...read more]
Useful tool for any player.

The Harp Shield works great in my setup. I play with a CMR 520 element into a modded VHT amp , the pedal allows me to get the necessary volume from the amp. I highly recommend this pedal. I have used it with many different amps and have had great results. Next on my list is a Lone Wolf delay pedal.

This is such an incredible pedal! I haven't found any other pedal that compares to this one when blocking feedback is necessary. If you play loud or frequently have to turn up your amp and keep getting feedback from the mic, this will solve your problems. No need in wasting time trying other pedals that claim to do the same thing, this is by far the best on the market.
