Harmony sounds

Soundfiles from Tad Wadhams
Tad wrote : "Please bear in mind that I am a BASS player and a marginal guitar player ! The songs were all done for a tv show, which is why they are all so different from each other style-wise. They were basically all done with Stratotone's H48/H49 but the solo on the second one is a 65 Stratocaster. The slide on song 1 is an H49 through my Silvertone amp !"

Lester plays the H1310 | link to file (mp3, 6069 kb)
Lester says : "I'm playing a 1953 H1310 Brilliant Cutaway made by the old Harmony Company when they still made their guitars in the USA. It's the "Skilbackacaster" that I bought from fellow Canuckster Sean Kilback. We did this at my buddy Eddie's house with his Tascam digital portastudio. The standup bass and 2 rhythm guitars are from a backing track CD that I use to practice this stuff and Eddie added the snare with brushes and I played the solo stuff. I did a simple rhythm during the snare solo just so the Harmony wouldn't disappear from the mix."

Key to the highway - H1310 archtop | link to file (mp3, 2259 kb)
This is the sunburst H1310 archtop acoustic... first take and a little ham-fisted. Strings are FLAT-wound nickel 11's because I also have a pickup on there.
H44 Stratotone | link to file (mp3, 407 kb)
H44 into a Fender Deluxe Reverb... shows the sweet clean tones you can get with these guitars... sounds like an archtop in some ways, but it's clearly a solidbody tone.

Next is the saturated overdrive of the H44 into a cranked late 1948 Valco Supreme - note the corpulent and undulating fat overtones this combination produces...

Here's yet another H44 clip with a small 5W Valco Spectator amp...
Newport or Stratotone ? H42 or H44 | link to file (mp3, 284 kb)
Finally, for those curious about this... Here's an H44 Stratotone and a H42 Newport playing similar riffs, into the same amp, with all the same settings. See if you can tell which one comes first and which one you prefer.

Soundfiles and video from Paco
Check this page for sounds and video, Paco compares some electric archtops, Silvertone S1320 (H54), Montgomery Wards 8884, and European guitars : Otwin Cabinet, Klira Penguin..

Videos from Malcolm Barclay
Mal made these to sell his H42 Newport... No wonder why it sold fast ! Asked about the amp, Mal said "I just plugged straight into my Victoria 5112 - a tweed champ with a 12" speaker."
