For almost two decades, www.patmissin.com has been a source of reliable information about the harmonica, information which is mostly not available elsewhere and comes from years of research and working with the harmonica for a living. This information has always been and will always be completely free of charge. I do not believe in subscription-only web sites, nor do I like web pages that bombard the reader with distracting adverts. However, this web site does cost money to run, as well as well as requiring time and effort to be put into it. If you find the information on this site to be useful, or if you have emailed me with a question and appreciated that I took the time to give you an experienced answer, then please consider supporting this site in one of the following ways: Donate, Buy Stuff or Say Thank You.
Consider this to be the internet equivalent of a tip jar, allowing you to show your appreciation with a small (or not so small!) monetary donation using PayPal.

Also scattered throughout this site are various links which enable you to purchase from either Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk various books, CDs, DVDs, etc., that I personally recommend. Each link will take you to a page about that particular product where you will be able to find more information about it, reviews by readers or listeners and audio samples of CD tracks. If you decide to order any item after following a link from my pages I will receive a small commission, at no extra cost to you. In selecting these items, I have tried to go for quality, not quantity. Rather than listing any and every harmonica-related item in Amazon's catalog, I have only listed those which I think are of very special interest. If you do not wish to purchase any of these recommended items, you can still help support this site by doing your Christmas shopping or buying birthday gifts from Amazon, using these search boxes to find the items you wish to buy. Please use this box to search Amazon.com:
If you would prefer to purchase from Amazon.co.uk, please use this search box:
If you don't wish to purchase anything from Amazon and you simply don't have a dollar to spare to help support this site, that's OK. I've been a musician most of my adult life, so I certainly know what it's like not to have too much money lying around. However, there is still a way that you can help make me feel valued and encourage me to continue working on new stuff to add to this site. I regularly answer questions emailed to me by people who stumbled across this site whilst surfing the web. I try to answer each and every one of these queries as promptly as possible. However, would you believe that more than 90% of the people who contact me with questions never bother to say "thank you" after I help them? These replies are not written by a robot, I take the time to answer each one personally. Sometimes these questions only take a few seconds to answer, sometimes they take considerably longer, but a simple "thank you" goes a long way to making me feel appreciated!
