Harmonica Microphones - Clean Sounding

Dynamic harmonica microphones – medium impedance, clean sounding

A powerful microphone with a clean, strong, rich and full sound across the dynamic range but with headroom for light distortion effects at high gain. Headroom slightly higher, and sensitivity slightly lower than high-z (dirty sounding) microphones

This is a microphone for the  harmonica player who is looking for a cleaner sound – providing a  mic that is rich in tone with more top end – resulting in crisper higher-end frequencies. The element has the widest frequency response and dynamic range of the Silver Bullets with a slightly lower sensitivity and a higher headroom to distortion compared with the high-z Silver Bullets range. By varying the degree of cupping you can create a range of clean sound effects and by turning up the mic and amplifier gain (with a touch of reverb) you can also introduce a light-touch of distortion. This is in contrast to the heavy crunch sound of the high-z Silver Bullet microphones. These dynamic microphones have proven reliability and are ideal for practice or gigging and especially suits playing cleaner sounding blues, melody, country, funk, reggae, soul or chromatic harmonica.

The microphone is medium (4KΩ) impedance which should be matched to a high (=/>40KΩ e.g. 400KΩ/0.4MΩ) impedance which is sometimes labelled as passive on the socket on your amplifier.
