Himy name is Rick, I seem to be forever learning the harmonica and making slow progress! But I am in love with them and the blues and have been making and selling hand crafted harps and custom mics in the UK and abroad for a while now. If you fancy taking a look at look at some of these "silverfish" custom harmonicas and mics at my website/on-line shop - also twitter/facebook pages - with looads of pictures:

https://twitter.com/silverfish_harpThe Silverfish Harmonica Mic II (Black)is a speciality precision built custom mic for blues harp players. It has at its heart a ceramic element that provides a rich sound texture with plenty of potential for distortion to produce a classic “blues” sound. This element uses the same old technology as the original crystal microphones from the 50′s but with the benefit of durability. It’s a fairly clean sound with a reasonable amout of headroom, so there is plenty of potential forplaying with the sound – which sounds great straight into a valveor solid state amp.The mic ishigh impedance so no audio transformer is needed.
The micssize and shape provides a durable design which is smaller than a Marine Band and fits neatly in your hand and pocket. Most importantly it is a perfect size for getting a really good seal for amplified harp playing and this is much easier than with a larger classic mic.
The mic is very light in your hand and is easy to hold with a harmonica while performing. The volume control is also perfectly placed underneath for access while playing providing excellent controlto boost your output or control feedback.
The mic connectsto a guitar amplifier or other high impedance (passive)input with a standard amp cable and 1/4″ jack plug.
The stylish hardwood front cover is a classic custom design with a stainless grill. It looks brilliant with a nice flame to the wood grain but also protects the back of the harp from mic damage.
This is a superb professional quality mic with excellent tone.
The component specification is the same as the Silverfish Harmonica MicI and Mic II (Silver) which is acoustically the same mic – the only difference is the housing design.
