"If you're going to play a "Mouth Organ" it should be the Best Anyone's Ever Heard!"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've only had it for awhile. Should have gotten the "matching transformer" with it for use on low-impedance input systems. Might recommend it, or I missed it when I read the product description. I'll get it when I order somthing else in the near future.
Certainly makes my harmonicas sound better
Has a volume control on the mic which makes it so much easier to vary the volume, at source, rather tahn wait for folks to cover tehir ears or dogs to howl on the High Notes.
Ease of Use
The product description tells us that it is a "Large, Hand Held Microphone." I am a large-handed person, ahrd to find gloves for "large-Handed Person." This Mic is almost too big for my hand. So be ready to play with it to get a good 'feel.' I do not use 'diatonic harmonicas' so I can not say how easy it would be to operate. All of mine are small, except "C" harmonica. It actually is easier to use with a larger instrument.
Rugged. Looks like it came right out of the "1940's - 1950's with that "rugged look" that reminds me of the old vacuum tube radios and "spring held" microphones" for AM Radio.
It should last longer than I do. It is one of the only items on the market for this use that I have found. It appears to be the most rugged and the best price.
It's a "Shure Product." I don't expect to need any. I own 8 and so far so good.
The Wow Factor
As I said, it is right out of the same time period as I am. It is used for hte same type of music I have always loved to play. Now I don't have to try so hard to be heard or stand behind a microphone and stand. If a person is going to play a mouth organ, might as well get the best bang for the buck. That is what "sex appeal" is all about, isn't it.
