A thing of great beauty - and it probably sounds pretty good too!

@stevenlois1 If it sounds half as good as it looks, it must be pretty darn sweet!

That is pretty! Congrats on a solid purchase. I have yet to dabble in amplification. I hope to have this taste when I do.

That is very cool Steven! I also just turned 70 and seeing your post, now I have sent Greg an email to get started ordering one of his too. Definitely a work of Art! Have fun!

There is a 6 month waiting list, but worth it. Take your time to explore the various options on the website. Talk with Greg for help in determining what will make you the happiest.

Amplification is another animal. Technique in playing is different. Check back when your ready, so the forum can help guide you.

Thanks Steven, in six months time hopefully my playing will be worth a better mic than my current Green Bullet (which I really like).

Looking forward to his creativity and Art! Thanks again!

I already have a stock bulletini and it makes all of my vintage Mics sound lame. It adds
bass and tone for miles.

I’ve seen Greg Heumann, founder of BMAPro, in many of the harmonica Facebook forums and have talked to him a couple times, he’s a pretty cool guy. He’s always showing the custom wood mics he’s built in those groups and, if I recall correctly, he was the first person to recommended me to check out my current teacher, Todd Parrott. I was extremely nervous to talk to him at first and worried about his reaction to me (plus add the fact that I’m very shy when talking to new people), but Greg gave me some encouragement to step outside of my comfort zone and to text Todd on Messenger. Greg has been commenting on my posts whenever I do my lesson updates or when I’m practicing a new song I learned and keeps telling me that I’m doing an amazing job.

She’s a beaut! Congrats and happy birthday my friend! Yeah, Greg is the man. How does the tone of this beauty compare to the bulletini?

Aloha,
Luke

Yes, the custom is beautiful- which is the ONLY reason to buy one since it is a lot more money to get one and the impact on tone is near negligible.
They are both very close in sound. The original bulletini is slightly clearer. The custom mellows the sound slightly. The custom has the new Bulletini
element since Greg no longer has the same material he had been using for the original Bulletinis, so I don’t know if the difference is just the element or if the wood body affects the sound.

Regardless, for gigs, after showing off the custom on the first tune, I will switch to the original bulletini, since it is much smaller and easier to cup and hold for long periods of time,
