Silver Bullets Harmonica Microphones

Silverfish Bullets are small artisan quality harmonica microphones that are rich in tone and high in performance. This is a microphone range that has many of the features that a harmonica player requires. Perfect for practice or gigging the mics have been developed specifically for harmonica and their heavy duty compact design and reliability stands up to the rigor of touring!

There are three ranges of Silver Bullet microphones:

  • Dynamic Low-Z
  • Dynamic Medium-Z
  • Ceramic High-Z
  • All three are specifically for harmonica and suit blues and chromatic harp players. The dynamic medium-Z can also be used for vocals. Microphones are supplied in a variety of styles that provide you with a choice of customised look and as either a bullet mic with adjustable gain or as a very small bullet microphone with no volume control. Microphones are therefore available in three sizes:

    • Mini – very small bullet mic with no gain
    • Midi – small bullet mic with no gain | fits mic-stand/slightly more to hold when performing
    • Standard – bullet with volume control |fits mic-stand
    • Silver Bullet - "midi" without volume control Silver Bullet – “midi” without volume control

      All microphones are available in a range of custom styles or just go for the lovely hard-wood finish.

      The response and sensitivity of the ceramic and dynamic microphone ranges are different and the microphones have some slightly different characteristics but all sound terrific and are suitable for practice, performance and recording.

      Broadly these characteristics are:

      Dynamic Low-Z: Bullet-proof dynamic element, low impedance, rich-full sound characteristics (cupped and un-cupped), particularly suits rig with pedals and splitters; medium power so may need higher volume setting or pre-amp for large venue performance. Requires a medium or high impedance amplifier.

      Dynamic Medium-Z: Bullet-proof dynamic element, high power microphone with higher fidelity, medium impedance, rich-full sound characteristics (cupped and un-cupped), also suits rig with pedals and splitters; can also be used for vocal so ideal for mixed performance. Requires a medium or high impedance amplifier.

      Ceramic High-Z: Durable and reliable ceramic element, high impedance, rich-full sound characteristics that has a slightly sharper edge when un-cupped – but mellows beautifully when cupped. Can be used with a rig that includes higher impedance pedals and splitters. Requires a high impedance amplifier.
