NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT
If you use a Shure 545 or SM57, you're not alone. These are wonderful harmonica mics and are in wide use. However their small diameter can make holding and cupping them uncomfortable. Over the last few years I've had many customers ask "Can you fit an SM57 or 545 element into a bullet-type shell?" The answer is no - the cartridge of these mics is about as long as a typical bullet shell's outside dimension, and then there's a transformer (located in the barrel of the standard mic) and the connector that have to be accommodated.
The Bulletizer(tm) is the solution. It gives you a larger surface to grasp and cup, and provides an acoustic chamber inside your cup to bring out the best of the mic's tone. You can even "tune the tone" by varying the position of the mic inside the shell. The Bulletizer fits standard Shure mics as well as their Ultimate Series counterparts. More information on the Bulletizer page at BlowsMeAway.com.

One more great idea Greg, I'm fine with cupping SM57, but i'd try this trick sometimes.
That's a very cool design, and a great innovation. What sonic differences do you notice with your new invention?

Greg it even makes the mic look good.
