Silver Bullet | Dynamic High-Z 40KΩ poker-chip (gain)
The Silver Bullet Dynamic | High-Z 40KΩ (with volume control) use a modified stainless/polymer poker-chip as a fascia. Apart from the novelty factor this creates an exceptionally nice looking and ruggedly constructed custom bullet-mic that is one of the smallest performance harmonica microphones on the market.
The high-z dynamic microphone is adapted from an acoustic element with a really “hot” signal that is packed with full harmonic content and great bass. The mic’ has perfect mid-sound without treble, with clear intonation. 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 (=/>400KΩ or =/>0.4M Ω) impedance sockets on your amplifier.
The microphone’s size and shape provides a durable design which is smaller than a Marine Band and fits neatly in your hand and pocket. It is a perfect size for getting a really good seal for amplified harmonica playing which is much easier than with a larger bullet mic. Another nice detail is the rubber around the head of the mic’ which serves two purposes: firstly it means that the harmonica isn’t going slip out of your hands when they get sweaty (a real issue!); secondly it helps achieve a consistent airtight seal around the harmonica and microphone to get the biggest “tone” you possibly can.
The mic’ is very light in your hand and is easy to hold with a harmonica while performing so you don’t get hand cramp after a long practice or performance. The volume knob is small and very firm which means you are not going to accidentally twist it in the middle of a particularly enthusiastic harmonica solo. The sensitive volume control provides you with excellent control to boost your output or control feedback or to increase gain for distortion effect. Like all silverfish harp mic’s, the unit can be stand-mounted and fits snugly in most small (fitting a 30mm barrel) microphone holders. The mic’ connects to a valve or solid state amplifier with a standard 1/4″ (6.3mm) guitar jack-plug socket.
This high impedance dynamic mic’ is truly awesome 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.
