Custom Paint Jobs On Mics/Harps

Back to the Maintenance, Repair and Customization Room

A while back I posted asking if getting custom paint jobs on harps would mess up the way a harp plays...

I was wondering if there are any mic sellers/makers or harmonica customizers who do detailed special paint jobs on mics. Pretty much all I see are one color paint jobs.

Most of what I see on mics is one color.

Kingley beat me to it. Mr Microphone is the guy - that's Dennis Oellig and he is a great guy and a great craftsman.

If I could keep the mic from getting scratched up I would have a custom paint job on my... when I get money list. But it is my nature I guess. If it is new and nice I'll mess it up somehow. :-)

keep it in your mouth

I can tell you this - if an automotive class, catalyzed paint is not used, the paint will NOT hold up. Its why I don't paint mics. A long time ago I did one for myself with that totally cool color changing paint that's sold along with the automotive touch up paints at places like Pep Boys or Kragen - it looked great but not for long. So be forewarned if you decide to try this yourself.

Yeah I agree with Greg. Paint tends to not last too long on mics.

Better options are powder coating which is a very hard finish and comes in almost as many colours as paint. I'm also a fan of chrome and nickel plating.

Jeff Spoor of is the man for powder coating.

Greg Heumann at is the man to see about chrome and nickel plating.
