Dynamic high-Z microphones

Silver Bullet Dynamic – high impedance harmonica microphones

www.silverfish-harmonicas.com

A slightly more powerful microphone with a courser, strong, rich and full sound across the dynamic range but with headroom for crunch-distortion effects. Headroom slightly lower, and sensitivity slightly higher than medium-z

Silver Bullet | Dynamic High-Z 40KΩ

For a dirtier distorted-blues sounding harmonica mic (and heavier distortion at high gain) – choose the 40KΩ dynamic microphone

For a combination of very clean vocal mic (high fidelity) and dirtier distorted-blues sounding harmonica mic – choose the 400-40KΩ switchable dynamic microphone

The 40KΩ dynamic microphone has a really “hot” signal that is packed with full harmonic content and great bass with perfect mid-sound without treble. This offers the highest sensitivity of Silver Bullet range with slightly lower headroom so 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. At lower gain the mic has a fairly clean sound across the harmonic range. 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 (=/>400KΩ/0.4MΩ) impedance sockets on your amplifier.

Check out Ben Hewlett’s video review comparing the 4KΩ (clean) and 40KΩ (dirty) Silver Bullets – which includes some cool playing showcasing the lovely tone of both these microphones when played by an expert!.

Silver Bullet | Dynamic Low-High-Z switchable 400Ω-40KΩ (variable)

For a combination of very clean vocal mic (high fidelity) and dirtier distorted-blues sounding harmonica mic – choose the 400-40KΩ switchable dynamic microphone

This is a switchable/variable impedance microphone that particularly suits mixed performance of both vocal and harmonica playing. This allows you to select between a high fidelity (sound quality) 400Ω or a high impedance output (40KΩ) for higher sensitivity and power as well as scope for driving the mic to produce crunch distortion effect for your amplified harmonica playing. With the highest sensitivity of Silver Bullet range this mic’ also has slightly lower headroom so 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 impedance sockets on your amplifier.

These high impedance silver bullets are awesome little microphones 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.
