Silver Bullet Dynamic – medium impedance harmonica microphones
Dynamic Medium-Z impedance
Silver Bullet | Dynamic medium-Z provide a more powerful microphone with a strong, rich and full sound across the dynamic range but with headroom for crunch-distortion effects. Headroom slightly higher, and sensitivity slightly lower than high-z
Dynamic 4,000Ω (4KΩ): medium-Z | widest dynamic range | sensitivity lower than 40KΩ but higher than 40Ω | higher head room to distortion | match to high impedance amplifier | gain control to avoid clipping distortion for clean sound | turn up gain for overload distortion
The Silver Bullet | Dynamic Medium-Z 4KΩ
The Silver Bullet | Dynamic Medium-Z 4KΩ This microphone produces a lovely rich tone with full harmonic content and great bass. This element has the widest frequency response and dynamic range of the Silver Bullets with a slightly lower sensitivity and as a result a higher headroom to distortion. This produces clear and rich low, mid and high sound without excessive treble. Alternatively, if you like crunch distortion – turn up the gain to drive the mic’ and achieve a crunchier sound when used in conjunction with reverb – producing a classic “blues” harmonica sound. Dynamic microphones have proven reliability and are ideal for practice or gigging – blues, country or chromatic harmonica performance. This mic needs to be matched to a high (=/>40KΩ or =/>0.04MΩ) impedance sockets on your amplifier.
This medium impedance silver bullets is an awesome little microphone with technology and craftsmanship that delivers a compact design with many of the features a harmonica player wants and needs and is very technique sensitive.
Note on impedance matching: The 4KΩ and dynamic microphone perform well on most amps with high impedance sockets and when used with PA systems. This therefore represent a safe bet for a Silver Bullet if you want to avoid getting technical on your impedance matching! Sub-optimal impedance matching (ideally amp input should be 10x that of the source mic’) may be compensated for with adjustment of microphone gain and amp settings or use of a pre-amplifier.
