Harmonica Microphones - Clean Sounding

Dynamic harmonica microphones – medium impedance, clean sounding

www.silverfish-harmonicas.com
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

Silver Bullet | Clean Dynamic – Medium-Z 4KΩ

For a cleaner sounding harmonica mic – choose the 4KΩ dynamic microphone

This microphone produces clear and rich sound with clean low, mid and high frequencies without excessive treble and with great bass. 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. The 4KΩ Silver Bullet may be cleaner but still provides some flexibility to introduce a light touch of distortion when you drive the mic’ by turning up the gain on the amp and setting the microphone gain to maximum, ideally applying a touch of reverb. These dynamic microphones have proven reliability and are ideal for practice or gigging and especially suits playing melody, blues, 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.
