I visited Deak's during a recent trip and really enjoyed hearing him play a couple of songs and describe his business, which revolves around reconditioning harmonicas. The store is actually mostly a quirky museum of blues-related things.

Just happened to drive by and saw the word harmonic in the window. Talked to Desk and ended up buying custom harmonica from him. Expensive but plays so much better than a stock harmonica.

This is one of the coolest shops in Clarksdale! The owner was in the shop when I visited. He was repairing a harmonica, and he was happy to work, chat, and play music with his customers. It's a tiny little shop in downtown Clarksdale. Often,...More
