    Silver Bullet Dynamic | Standard Mini Harp Mic 4K Clean

    NOTE: THERE IS CURRENTLY A SPECIAL PROMOTIONAL OFFER ON THE NEW STANDARD MINI HARP MIC OF A FREE LEATHER CASE

    (in place of standard leatherette case – available for limited period only!)

    This is a particularly small pocket-sized harp mic modelled after the vintage harp mics and features a rugged heavy-all-metal casing, dark hardwood fascia and chunky terminal volume control with base-mounted jack-socket. This handmade, artisan harmonica microphone with a very low form-factor provides a great standard for the serious harmonica blues player – providing a powerful, high impedance mic that is rich in tone, robust and comfortable to hold for long periods of practice or gigging.

    The microphone produces a lovely clean sound – rich tone with full harmonic content and great bass. The element has a slightly lower sensitivity and as a result a higher headroom to distortion and a cleaner frequency response. At lower to mid gain settings this produces clear and rich low, mid and high sound without excessive treble. Alternatively, if you like a very light touch of distortion – turn up the gain on the amp and set microphone to maximum to drive the mic’, ideally used in conjunction with reverb. Dynamic microphones have proven reliability and this cleaner sounding mic is ideal for practice or gigging – perfect for playing cleaner sounding blues, melody, country, funk, reggae, soul or chromatic harmonica. This microphone is medium (4KΩ) impedance which therefore needs to be matched to a high (=/>40KΩ) 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. 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. A really nice feature of this mic is the inset rubber seal and gnarled ring at 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. Smaller then the Special II this mic may suit a player with small hands or who prefers a very small and neat mic!

    The mic’ is exceptionally small and 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 chunky terminal volume knob is 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 added distortion effect or control unwanted feed-back issues. To maintain a set volume level while disabling the mic mid-performance, you have the option to use the “one-click disabling feature” of this mic. This enables you to quietly disconnect the lead by one click while firmly retaining jack-plug connection until you are ready to play again. The mic’ connects to a valve or solid-state amplifier with a standard 1/4″ (6.3mm) guitar jack-plug socket.

    The microphone is supplied with a hand-crafted leather finish that wraps tightly around the microphone that looks great but also adds some additional grip, seal and protection.

    This high impedance dynamic mic’ is top-of-the range in sound, feel and playability.
