My New Favorite Place to Buy Harps

Well, dear reader, consider this my second official endorsement (though I’m not getting anything for writing this, so I suppose it would be an unofficial endorsement… bah, point being, I endorse these guys!).  It has long been my curse that I fell in love with a harmonica no one seems to carry on the shelves.  Well, about a month ago I found a solution to this particular quandary in a small brick building in Hamilton, Ontario called The Music Stand.  I’ve long known about The Musicians Web Store as a place to buy harmonicas, and  even purchased my first Seydel through them, but I only recently realized that they are less than an hour from my house!  So a few weekends ago, before my trip to New Zealand, I got in my car and made a little road trip to purchase another Seydel.  Oh how glorious it was!  This place is a fantastic music store.  It’s the kind of place with instruments on every wall, music and accessories filling the racks, lessons happening in the back, and a whole CASE of Seydel harmonicas!  There were others, too, but I was really only there for one thing so I didn’t think to see what else they kept in stock.  The young lady who helped me was nothing short of lovely and was very happy to let me see any and every harmonica I wanted.  So many choices!

In fact, I’d like to thank my wife for not being cross when I came home with, not one, but two new Seydels!  C’mon… how could I leave a place like this with only one harp?  I’ll write up a review on these harps soon (an 1847 Silver in Low D and a Session Steel in A♭) but for now, I just wanted to share the news that I’ve found a fantastic vendor for harmonicas.  If you’re in the Toronto area, hop in your car and go visit the lovely folks at The Music Stand.  And if you’re looking for a good place to order harps online, I highly recommend The Musicians Web Store, especially if you’re in Canada.  The people are extremely friendly and helpful, they were quick with delivery, and they had great prices, both for the US and for Canada.
Now go out and buy yourself a new harp!  I’ll be back there very soon, myself.  But in the meantime, here’s a video of me test driving my new Seydel 1847 Silver in Low D.  Enjoy!
