Description

To get to the heart of Valentine's Day, get a sense of the sound quality of the FlashHarp.

Hear me demo it on my About page here: www.etsy.com/shop/BackyardBrand/about

I handcraft FlashHarp® and its related geekery statement jewelry myself in Riverside, IL, using U.S. parts and high-quality imported parts.

Harmonica's body length is just 2-9/16th inches (this excludes the USB plug and finding for necklace). Total shipping weight with packing is normally about 5 ounces.

Item includes:

- 8GB FlashHarp Harmonica USB
- 28-29" ball chain with connector
- Plastic cap for USB plug
- Plastic box (NOTE, necklace box is different from the normal FlashHarp box; i.e., it does not permit access to USB plug while FlashHarp is inside box)
-Preloaded with harmonica lesson videos

Option includes:
-Personalization (32 characters max. Be sure to include text when you select this option. See below*, pic 5 and "Select an option").

This is a real working harmonica!
• Perfect gift for anybody who likes music—especially harmonica music.
• Great for storing outdoorsy songs, videos and pics.
• Song videos make visible the invisible obstacles that commonly trip folks up.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, please include phone number when purchasing (for Customs declaration forms).

*Process for Personalization:
I work with an outside engraver, which may add to the normal Process Time, depending on the engraver's workload (my source is extremely prompt and reliable and I keep you informed in real time as I learn of changes to Process Time). Using a precisely size-matched template, a self-adhesive-backed, black "strip" is made out of color-matched material that's specially made for laser-etching. The template was created by my engraver specifically for FlashHarp. I normally apply Personalization myself but PERSONALIZATION MAY BE APPLIED POST-PURCHASE BY THE BUYER OR RECIPIENT. Self-application is assumed whenever a Personalized item is purchased but no text is supplied, and whenever Personalization is requested but not paid for. In these cases I Convo and/or email the Buyer to request the necessary input. If I get insufficient input after 48 hours I ship the piece without Personalization assuming the customer intends to complete the Personalization later.

FAQs

I was in my backyard when the idea for my handmade, patented FlashHarp® harmonica USB came to me. Also, all 10 of the lessons I preload on the FlashHarp take place in my backyard, nine of which take advantage of the oversized FlashHarp I built—you guessed it—in my backyard.
Unlike ordinary harmonicas, FlashHarp has a unique set of feature/benefits to keep players—especially beginners—from turning into quitters...

1) FlashHarp's novelty delights all who see it. So learners stay stoked.
2) FlashHarp's usefulness keeps it handy. So players keep carrying, and playing, it!

I make FlashHarp with custom-U.S.-made and imported parts and pack and ship all items myself (in excelsior straw). I have 100% 5★ feedback.
Yes, here: www.etsy.com/shop/backyardBrand/about

Also, here's one of my nine preloaded "Play-Along" Song Videos:
♫♫ "Rock A Bye, Baby" (played "straight" harp style) ♫♫: www.etsy.com/shop/HarmonicaUSB/about
• A patented 8GB flash drive (U.S. Pat. Nos. D602,940 & D624,550)
• 10-minute 5-step lesson & 9 play-along videos
• A great-sounding, playable little harmonica (integrated with flash drive)
• A 26" - 29" necklace (necklace items only)
• Personalization (Personalized items only)

Specs:
- Full compatibility with USB 1.1 and 2.0
- Dual Channel Flash Memory Architecture
- Hot plug and play; functions like another hard drive
- Supports password protection
- No driver needed (Windows 98SE driver available)
Dimensions (in inches):
With USB cap on, out of plastic box: 3³⁄₁₆ x 7/8 x ¹¹⁄₁₆
• Integrates a harmonica and a flash drive in one
• Stores data such as pics, tunes, videos, just like ordinary flash drives
• Makes great-sounding music
• Makes a fun gift
• Looks fabulous (stainless steel, brass and black)
• Imparts the feeling of a musician carrying an ax to a gig
• Deflects any shame about your "sound" ("Hey, it's a flash drive—chill!"). Plus, even if you stop playing for a while (it happens), should the urge to start playing again strike—which is quite likely to happen with a FlashHarp since the USB gives you a reason to keep carrying it—well, I say go for it!
• End up in the back of a drawer like plain, old harmonicas
• Leave you with the vacuous vibe of ordinary flash drives
• Start playing when you plug it in (that's a techy taboo)
• Record audio (there's no mic built-into the FlashHarp)
• Require you to bend or play single notes (but you can if you want to!)

The important thing is setting free the musical spirit inside you. The harmonica has always been a great tool for that. If it was good enough for Abe Lincoln—http://bit.ly/109ch1g—it's good enough for us.
Yes!

The memory and musical workings are imported and supplied to me brand-new by market leaders. Additional custom-designed and -tooled parts are made just for me here in the state of Illinois, U.S.A. I carefully combine everything by hand so it all coexists peacefully. My video lesson and play-along songs, which demystify the obstacles that often trip folks up, are my finishing touch on a digital device with a hobo soul.

More about sucking than blowing, crossharp (blues) really crosses up beginners because it makes the 2 "draw" (and 3, 6 and 9 "blows") the tonal center. www.etsy.com/shop/BackyardBrand?section_id=13493203

Straight harp keeps the tonal center the 1, 4, 7, 10 "blows." It's how Billy Joel is blowing on "Piano Man." Acquiring do-ra-mi familiarity in the straight key is a necessary first step for any harmonica player. www.etsy.com/shop/BackyardBrand?section_id=13498720

If you know how to play single notes, you know it's like riding a bike—and your skill will transfer to a FlashHarp. If you've yet to master single notes and want to, I offer this: www.etsy.com/listing/55473256
1) DO NOT SEPARATE THE BOX HALVES! Returns are not accepted for FlashHarps whose box label-seal is not intact—so-called "Intimate items" that may have made contact with someone's lips. (See Policies.)

2) STATE TO ME IN A CONVO THAT THE BOX LABEL-SEAL IS INTACT AND ITEM IS UNUSED. I'll provide a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number.

3) WRITE RMA# CLEARLY ON OUTSIDE OF RETURN SHIPPING BOX. Refunds do not include the cost of shipping and are issued after received goods are confirmed unused. Cost to return to Buyer any goods I find unrefundable will be paid by the Buyer, in advance.
