Built by Hohner expressly to meet the unique needs of the harp player.

The Hoodoo Box is a 5W, Class A, hand-wired tube amp combo designed especially for harmonica players. Built from the ground up to produce the fat, distorted tones that are the cornerstone of the electric blues harp sound, it is equipped with a single EL84 power tube and a 12 AX7 plus 12 AU7 tube complement in the preamp stage. Its classic spring reverb will add drama and air to your performances while the Celestion Super 8 8" speaker is especially suited to reproduce the entire range of harp tones. The XLR direct output can be used for recording or as a send to the front of house PA.

The Tone control helps you dial in the right sound with a range that goes from Dark to Bright to Scooped, the latter setting giving you a flat-out, heavily distorted sound. The Hoodoo Box will bring out the best in your harp technique as well as your mics. From growls and soulful wailing to dynamic virtuosity, the Hoodoo Box will bring these sounds and more to your harmonica playing.

The roadworthy Hoodoo Box cabinet features classic styling with rugged Tolex covering, white piping, and special Hohner grille cosmetics.

Comments about Hohner Hoodoo Box 5W Harmonica Tube Amp:

This little amp looked great, but I could not get the gain level I wanted without unpleasant distortion, regardless of the control setting combinations used.

Comments about Hohner Hoodoo Box 5W Harmonica Tube Amp:

I am a gig musician with several amps. I wanted a reasonably priced tube amp that was easy to transport and had PA capabilities. The hoodoo box was well packed (double boxed) and in perfect condition when received. I currently have about 35 hours of break-in on the amp, and it gets better with time. I use a Behringer UB802 powered mixer for a strnad shp10v mic' and a Shure sm58 mic'. The mixer allows me to apply additional gain to both mic's. The amp overdrives very well with this set-up. I recently used this configuration in a studio setting with the amp output cable plugged into the PA system with excellent results. I would recommend this versatile tube amp to any harp player serious about how they sound in various venues.
