Silver Bullet Dynamic | High-Z 50KΩ Dirty/Lo-Fi
The Silver Bullet Dynamic | High-Z 50KΩ Dirty/Lo-Fi (with volume control) The microphone has a really “hot” signal that is packed with full harmonic content and great tone with perfect base and mid-sound without treble. The sound is warm, responds to cupping and pressure changes and breaks up nicely. The 50KΩ offers the highest sensitivity of Silver Bullet range with lower headroom so if you like crunch distortion and a lovely dirty blues sound this is the microphone to chose. Apply a touch of reverb from your amp, turn up the gain to drive the mic’ and achieve various degrees of distorted, crunchy classic “blues” harmonica sound, especially when cupped. Ideally . Dynamic microphones have proven reliability and are ideal for practice or gigging – blues and country harmonica performance. This mic’ needs to be matched to a high (500KΩ/0.5MΩ) 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 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 mic. 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!); secondly it helps achieve a consistent airtight seal around the harmonica and microphone to get the biggest “tone” you possibly can.
The mic’ is very 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 distortion effect. Like all silverfish harp mic’s, the unit can be stand-mounted and fits snugly in most small (fitting a 30mm barrel) microphone holders. 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 truly awesome with technology and craftsmanship that delivers a compact design with many of the features a harmonica player wants and needs and is very technique sensitive.
