    Mini Silver Bullet Ceramic | High-Z (coloured poker-chip/no gain)

    The Mini Silver Bullet Ceramic | High-Z (poker chip – no 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. Similar to the Silverfish ceramic harmonica microphone in all its performance but with no volume control this enables miniaturisation and lower cost. The mic is perfect for entry level to amplified harmonica playing or if you fancy a really small bullet mic that delivers, but don’t mind boosting your output or controlling feedback through your amplifier or technique.

    All silverfish mic’s are handmade artisan quality harmonica microphones with great amplified sound with many of the features a harmonica player requires. This is a mic that you can use for practice or gigging as its heavy duty compact design and reliability stands up to the rigor of touring!

    The Silverfish bullet mic has at its heart a ceramic element that provides a rich sound texture and harmonic content with plenty of headroom for distortion to produce a classic “blues” sound. This element uses the same old technology as the original crystal microphones from the 50′s but with the benefit of durability. It’s a fairly clean sound but when you cup it firmly, and with a little help from the amplifier, you can get some very tasty, creamy overdrive without the annoying mid-range honk you get from a lot of microphones.

    The microphone’s size and shape provides a durable design which is as long as your thumb and therefore 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 microphone. 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!) and secondly it helps achieve a consistent airtight seal around the harmonica and microphone to get the biggest “tone” you possibly can.

    The mic’ is extremely 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 lack of gain-control on this bullet microphone could be considered a small sacrifice to achieve a performance bullet mic of this size. The mic’ connects to a valve or solid state amplifier with a standard 1/4″ (6.3mm) guitar jack-plug socket. The mic’ is high impedance so no audio transformer is needed.

    This silverfish harp mic’ is truly an awesome microphone with technology and craftsmanship that delivers a really compact design and is very technique sensitive.
