In addition to recording microphones and live microphones, Musician’s Friend has a great selection of specialty microphones. Recent years have seen a slight resurgence in interest in ribbon microphones. Often thought of as being too fragile and unreliable, some recent innovations in microphone technology means that producers and engineers can enjoy the great tone of a ribbon microphone without having to break the bank. Modern ribbon mics are now capable of recording higher volume sound sources, such as electric guitar amplifiers. Another specialty microphone is the Harmonica microphone. We have a few of these, starting at less than $100. Harmonica microphones come in a distinctive “bullet” shape and are designed to be held up against the harmonica. They produce a distinctive electric blues tone, especially when plugged into a tube amplifier. Other specialty microphones include podium microphones, for use as an overhead microphone for choirs, as well as on a podium for in a lecture hall or place of worship. Another practical microphone is the headset mic, which is great for theatrical performances or any situation where you want an unobtrusive, hands free microphone. The list of specialty microphones is almost endless. As with everything we sell, all our Specialty Microphones are supported by our price & satisfaction guarantees and free standard shipping now applies to all orders over $25, including many heavy items.
