Ok, so the neck harmonica holder has existed forever and that's how long I've hated it. I used it because there was nothing else but I'm a strummer and I move around and the stupid thing would move and the next thing I know I'm trying to play harmonica with my head all scrunched up to the side. Miserable.

I tried mounting a harmonica to a mic stand on my own and knew that if someone could make it work I would be all over it.

I love this product.

My favorite way to use it is on a straight mic stand with a round base. I put up a e609 mic and the harparm right up to it. I can lean in on it and make it howl.

Between the magnet and the 2 arms in front I can lean in pretty good on it and it stays put.

Thanks for this. I've even bought one of these for a friend of mine who plays harp as well.

Arrived without important magnetic piece. Another piece floating in the box not in bubble holder on display card. Customer Service immediately corrected the issue by sending another one.
Works better than I anticipated actually. Good when you want to use two different harps in one session, or don't want to use a neck holder for some reason. Proabably better for short segments, not extended or rough play.

Comments about HarpArm Mic Stand Harmonica Holder:

I am still learning to use the holder instead of a rack around the neck, it allows easy play. It lines up well with the mic. Not sure I can use it for Open Mic gigs, it takes a minute to clip on the stand & I'm busy enough with guitar & sound checks. Once in place it allows easy access to the harp & swings out of the way when I am not using the harp. Also quick change of keys is faster than a neck rack. Will likely use it for traditional gigs when I have more stage time.

      Comments about HarpArm Mic Stand Harmonica Holder:

      OK, details... First, I think this is a long needed item for a harp player, singer and guitar player. A big problem for me using a traditional neck rack has always been getting consistently close to the microphone with the harp without bumping into it. Also, neck racks have always been uncomfortable and hard to keep adjusted in the heat of play. The HARP ARM solves those problems, but blocks me from getting close to the microphone for vocals, whereas the rack is more out of the way when not being played allowing me to close the distance for vocals. To remedy this with the HARP ARM, I use a T-bracket at the top of the mic stand and mount two microphones, one for vocals and one for the harp mounted in the HARP ARM. It took a bit of getting used to, but we gigged for the first time last night. I'm still in the learning curve, but after a few hours of practice, it worked well and should only get better. My old neck rack laid in my gear bag for the first time. I believe from here on, you will see my mic stand with a HARP ARM and two microphones, a FIREBALL V for the harp and my SM58 for vocals. So far so good. 5 stars for innovation and function. Peace.

        Comments about HarpArm Mic Stand Harmonica Holder:

        I'm no pro harp player, yet. But been a pro guitarist/singer for too many years. Always wanted to blow some harp and I have a neck holder from the 70s that I hate, but I see they haven't improved much since then. LOL Then I found this harmonica holder. I use a stand with a boom, and I was surprised this clamp worked just fine holding my mics in front of my mic. The magnet is plenty strong too.
        If it has a flaw, it does keep me from "eating" the mic, as I'm prone to doing with louder music. No more of that with the mic between my lips and the mic's grill.
        Otherwise, this is a great invention that was a long time comin'- sorely needed!

            Comments about HarpArm Mic Stand Harmonica Holder:

            I tried rigging various devices over the years (Been playing blues harp since 1963), and had settled on the Hohner narrow neck holder, and have gotten well-adjusted to that...but the harp always had to be "sung-around", and the holder would push away from me, requiring me to quickly reach up and re-position it.
            This works FANTASTIC! Places the harp right where I want it in relation to the mic, and can blow slightly below the mic if only using one mic, so I can sing over the top (I prefer two separate stands, however, so I can brush my lips on the separate vocal mic).
            My hands never have to leave the guitar to re-adjust, because it stays put...and that magnet is STRONG!
            This is one well deigned unit, and as soon as you try it you realize a harp player designed this.
            WELL DONE, HARP ARM!!

                    A long needed item that doesn't interfere with your vocals. Just takes 2 seconds to change harmonicas instead of the whole process with the neck holder t type. The only thing I can say negative about this is that being attached to a mic stand is a little unstable for aggressive harp playing. You have to adjust your style a bit. When I play I support it
                    laterally with a music stand and bungee cords which helps keep it more solid. This is the 2nd one I bought. I have one mounted to my shelf in my practice room and use the other one for gigs.

                        Comments about HarpArm Mic Stand Harmonica Holder:

                        I wanted to free myself from the neck harp holder which many times hits the microphone and gets in the way of my guitar strap so I purchased this cool little invention. This device also eliminates the distance issue when adjusting the neck holder type to be close enough to the harp to play it with sufficient pressure, and far enough to be able to sing without your lip touching the harp. Another great feature is that this device lets you get close to the mic when you want to sing lower volume or breathy and not have a hunk of metal between you and the mic. This device has a great magnetic holder which makes changing harps a 1 second non issue vs the 15+ sec process of using the neck holder type, and then readjusting the angle. MY MAIN PROBLEM WITH THIS DEVICE is that using it with a plastic tripod mic stand pretty much renders it too unstable to do any serious harp playing with the pressures required to hit a note bent a few holes away or jump to holes that are 3 or 4 holes apart. I even ran 3 stablilizing wires to the legs but in only helped a little. I read a previous review before I purchased it that said it should be used with a round weighted base type of metal mic stand and now I can see why. Having a metal base and a metal pole might make it more stable but being a guitar player, I need a boom stand (but I can probably just use a single pole with a flexible goose neck to give me the clearance I need for the guitar). If I obtain a metal base and pole stand, I will try to add another review with the results. In summary, if you are a guitarist and just want to toot some light harmonica notes or chords between vocal lines, or just play slower phrases without alot of bending, this will work great for that and if you keep your lips moist (so you slide on the harp easier), it will minimize the back and forth side ways motion. Or if you are a vocalist and not playing a guitar and want to keep a harp close and handy, this will be perfect for you (plus you can hold the sides with your hands for more aggressive playing) Again, maybe a solid sturdy metal stand will eliminate or at least greatly reduce the issue I have with it. For now, until I find a more stable stand, assuming that that will actually significantly eliminate the instability, it's back to the dreaded brace LOL ! And even the neck brace type holder is still not the same as wrapping your hands around a harp but I just love playing harp with guitar because it adds another dimension to the performance. Last thing is that this device in itself is sturdy and reliable and stays in place when set and tightened down. It's just the mic stand moving sideways that is an issue, not the device itself. Other reviews have said it is flimsy but I don't exactly agree. It is WELL worth the price IMNSHO. I mean you aren't going to get a high tolerance metal engineering work of art for this price ! I had to choose between recommending this to a friend or not so I had to say not but since I was forced to pick on or the other, I felt I had to give a full explanaion. Hope this helped, botarblues
