The Silver Bullet |Dynamic Medium-Z Ivory mic is my pick of the month.
This is a very attractive piece of kit and a new member of the Silver Bullet harmonica microphone range. The medium impedance dynamic this is available in both “midi” (no vol. control). and “standard” (with vol. control) models. Both are a powerful new harmonica microphone with a strong rich and full sound. Adapted from an acoustic dynamic element this is a flexible microphone with a really “hot” signal that is fat – packed with full harmonic content and great bass. The mic’ has perfect mid-sound without treble – with clear intonation. A high-fidelity sound that can be used as both a powerful performance harp microphone and a vocal mic – perfect for blues and country singers.
The tailored dynamic element provides some headroom to enable you to drive the mic’ and produce a classic “blues” harmonica sound – with a little help from your amp. The dynamic element has proven reliability and this ruggedly constructed mic’ is perfect for practice or gigging – especially mixed (harp/vocal) performance.
The dynamic medium-Z mic has a double foam and mesh build to avoid breath sound and enhancing vocal-sound quality when pronouncing plosive consonants. However, the mic’ can be upgraded for greater vocal performance with a separately purchased foam pop-filter/windscreen for effective reduction of wind noise and “popping” which is perfect for outdoor performance.
Like all silver bullets, the dynamic medium-Z mic’ can be stand-mounted and fits snugly in most small (fitting a 30mm barrel) microphone holders.
