A dynamic harmonica mic with a robust, warm tone.

The Shaker's Dynamic XLR Harmonica Mic is warm, thick, full bodied, and has lots of harmonic overtones as well as great feedback rejection. The mic offers a wide frequency response and strong mid range. The microphone fits in your harp hand with almost no conscious effort, greatly reducing hand fatigue and allowing greater use of both hands for gestures. This is just an outstanding-sounding harp mic featuring an 11-detent volume control knob. You can even use this Shaker dynamic microphone as a vocal or saxophone mic.

Shaker Harmonica Microphones are part of a complex music making system, one that includes the harmonica, the player's hands, the microphone, the amp, and the player's personal techniques. Traditional methods of measuring response and behavior become pretty much irrelevant because Shaker mic's don't fit strictly into the established categories of polar patterns.

By using a sampling of the harmonica's sound and directing it through acoustic ports into a volume-tuned chamber, Shaker mics become, in essence, miniature hand-held recording studios. This is known as Shaker GNS technology, or good noise sampling, resulting in great tone, extreme technique sensitivity, and tremendous feedback rejection. Designed and engineered by Shakey Joe, these mics are totally handmade in the US and utilize as many American-made parts as possible, making Shaker microphones the real deal. Shaker micropnones are made in the Arizona desert by harp players, for harp players.

  • Dynamic element
  • Output: Switchcraft XLR 3-pin connector wired pin-2-hot

Shake it up on your harp with a dynamic Shaker mic with a sax-like tone.

        Comments about Shaker Dynamic XLR Harmonica Microphone:

        Harp is a 3rd instrument for me and I havent used this mic on stage. I simply cant handle my bullet... too heavy and the size makes it difficult to create a 'pocket' and manipulate my fingers. Same with the Shure 58 (I will probably p/u a Shure 57 at some point). The SHAKER DYNAMIC is perfect for my hands and I can manipulate my hand/fingers easily while holding the mic! I am able to manipulate the sound very well with a small full-featured modeling amp, hence I can continue to use my own style of acoustic harp with this mic. I can get a great dirty sound as well. Again I dont know about on stage but at 'abnormal' volumes the feedback is very controllable.... so for MY purposes this mic is awesome, right here, right now.

        Comments about Shaker Dynamic XLR Harmonica Microphone:

        Pass this by. The combination of low output, no high end frequency response, and propensity to feed back even when standing far away from the amp is a killer. Good luck soloing at any volume. If you EQ to avoid feedback, it'll even have less punch. At bar playing volumes it will feed back unless you're in a high-ceiling room.
