NAMM 2020 SPOTLIGHT | Harmony, Heritage and Mono

Posted by Tim Fogarty on

One of the first stands you walk into at the main entry was the well positioned Bandlab Technologies stand. Handling Harmony Guitars, Mono Case, Heritage Guitars and Teisco Pedals. One of the cleanest and classiest displays presented. It helped that the gear they have is pretty damn good too. As we are new dealers of Harmony Guitars it was a must see. The chance to hear and see the new Harmony amps! With two new amp series on show, the very cute 8418 Tube Combo (only available in USA at this point, we hope it changes) and the 600 series,...

Arriving to an industrial type area from Anaheim you would hardly know the factory was there, with a very unpretentious entry with minimal signage, you'd be forgiven for not finding the facility. The entry being a window and small holding...

MJ WELCOMES HARMONY GUITARS

Posted by Tim Fogarty on

We are excited with our newest guitar line at Music Junction. Harmony Guitars. We always aim to provide gear that inspires us, that we use and that is a little unique in a crowded market. Harmony Guitars ticks all those boxes. A re-branding and re-launch of sorts from the Harmony guitars we all stumble across in second hand stores, the specs are terrific, bringing it forward into 2020. Made in Chicago, USA, with gorgeous Nitro finishes, gold foil pickups that are hugely dynamic and have a nice compression and comes with a MONO case, they are hard to ignore. Oozing...
