i want to start amplifying my harmonica, and i read that it helps if you put your microphone on overdrive. i have a vocal mic and a vox 10 watt guitar amp-not the best setup i know. can anyone suggest a good way to get a nice overdrive tone out of my amp, whether through a pedal or on the controls? i am planning on investing in a harmonica mic sometime soon, but since im living off a paper round it could be a while

The "green bullet" shown above is the classic harp mic. Fits nicely in the hand along with the harmonica. As to a bit of overdrive.. Depends on the sound you're looking for. Listen to a bunch of the classic blues-harp men. You'll see a variety of tones used from very clean to quite overdriven depending on the style of blues being played and where the player is from.

A lot of the Chicago bluesmen used a pretty "hard" sound to go with rather large and electrically-amplified bands.
