Harmonicas are one of those things that pretty much every kid has, and virtually no kid actually knows how to play. Not that there aren’t those who go on to play them — Junior Wells and Fingers Taylor leap to mind — but in general they end up forgotten in the bottom corner of a toy box. However, if you add in a flash drive, then it’s a whole different ballgame. And this particular ballgame I kind of want to play.

The FlashHarp is actually a working harmonica with a USB flash drive grafted onto it. The base model is 2GB, but it is available in 4GB and 8GB versions. A plastic cap is provided to protect the USB connector while you’re fulfilling your blues fantasy. The really neat thing is that the drive comes pre-loaded with harmonica lessons in case you’re one of the majority of grownups who doesn’t remember how to play.

Prices range from $50.00 US to $85.00 US depending on the model, but if you’re willing to pay a bit more you can have yours personalized. And really…why wouldn’t you want to?
