Silver Bullet Dynamic | Special 4K Clean
The Silver Bullet Dynamic | Special 4KΩ (with volume control) is a very special and top-of the range harmonica mic. Special in its unique looks, feel, features and especially sound. The heavy-duty metal design, finished with a lovely dark hardwood fascia is a very nice look with a solid and robust industrial feel (there is a touch of steam-punk in its design!). This mic produces a lovely clean sound – rich tone with full harmonic content and great bass. The 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. At lower to mid gain settings this produces clear and rich low, mid and high sound without excessive treble. Alternatively, if you like a very light touch of distortion – turn up the gain to drive the mic’ and achieve a slightly crunchier sound when used in conjunction with reverb. Dynamic microphones have proven reliability and are ideal for practice or gigging – blues, country or chromatic harmonica performance. This microphone is medium (4KΩ) impedance which therefore needs to be matched to a high (=/>40KΩ) 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. 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. A really nice feature of this mic is the inset rubber seal and gnarled ring at 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 exceptionally 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 a light distortion effect (at very high gain) or control unwanted feed-back issues. 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 top-of- the range and special in terms of sound, feel and playability.
