This review is a comparison of the Red Howler to
an older Green Bullet 520D w/out the Volume Pot.
The freq.range of the Bullet is 100HZ to 5,000 HZ.
The Howler is 100HZ to 6,000HZ. The tone of both
are very close. The Howler is a bit brighter as
the specs indicate. A Fender Blues-Deluxe : 40W
1-12 was used to test both mics. The Amp settings were : Brt Sw.=Off, Clean Vol.=Off, Drive Select button=ON, Drive knob=2.5, Treble=3, Middle=5,
Master=4, Reverb & Presence knobs=Off. The MICs were in INPUT #2. When using the Red Howler my hand came in contact with the Volume Pot and would turn it down inadvertently. Watch out for this. It came with a soft, pliable, yet heavy-duty
20 foot cord, same as the Bullet. The Volume and Tone of Both Mics are practically identical. The average listener with closed eyes couldn't tell the difference. Remember: NO MIC by itself with give the FAT, Warm, Full, slightly distorted tone of the Blues-Greats. I recommend a tube amp with
mild over-drive or maybe a pedal with mild over-drive. Like anything else-Season to YOUR TASTE!

          It was priced right and I'm very happy with it. It does just what it's supposed to do - get a great, slightly overdriven sound out of a guitar amp with your harp. Volume at your fingertips like it should be.
