Switchable Silver Bullet | Special - Clean/Dirty Sounding Harp Mic

I thought I’d introduce and raise awareness of a unique harp mic that is now available from Silverfish Harmonicas

Silver Bullet Dynamic | Special – Dirty 50KΩ/Clean 4KΩ switchable

This is a pretty special and top-of the range harmonica mic that offers the ultimate in flexibility of performance characteristics. It is probably the only harmonica mic available that offers the choice of two separate dynamic elements within the same microphone allowing a seamless switch between powerful dirty or clean sound performance. The clean and dirty sounds are both rich in tone with full harmonic content and great bass. The heavy-duty metal design, finished with a lovely dark hardwood fascia is a very nice look with a solid and robust industrial feel (there is a touch of steam-punk in its design!).

The mic offers precisely the same performance characteristics of the separate clean and dirty silver bullets but in one mic providing a neat and unique rig with the ultimate in flexibility for your amplified harmonica playing.
