    I've played guitar and harp for over 45 years.

    If you play harp this is your mike!

    I've been using a vintage Astatic harp mike for years and I like it. But recently I purchased a Harptrain 10 amp that is speciifically made for the harp and my Astatic mike just wasn't cutting it with that amp. I called the amp company and they suggested that I try the Green Bullet. Well Sweetwater was running a promotion that let purchase this baby and pay it off interest free in 12 months for $5 a month. Well that was an offer I just couldn't refuse! I'm so glad that I went for it. This mike has the power and that dirty sound that I was looking for all my life and I'm not feeling the payments at all. How could you beat that!! I did my first gig with it and everyone was blown away by the sound! If you play harp and are looking for a mike, look no further!

    Awesome mic

    My son bought me this mic for Christmas, I had a cheap knock off. Let me just say that this mic blows the other one away. I was curious how it would sound and I can tell you that I wasn't disappointed. It has 3x the volume of that cheap knock off. I guess the saying "you get what you pay for" really does apply here. I bought the holder that Sure makes for it because I don't like to hold it while I play, I prefer to have it on a stand, just personal preference. I would definitely recommend this mic to any harp player :)

    Great Microphone

    Love this mic for my harmonica parts. I use to play my harmonica parts through my vocal mic. Got this one and I love it. I love the sound, the comfort of the mic in my hand. I love the volume control. It comes in handy when the rest of the band gets louder and I can adjust the volume on the fly. My band members noticed the tone was warmer. I love this mic. If you want a great harmonica mic this is the one. You can't go wrong.

    Great Mic

    Great mic for the harp. It has a lot of output, so knock 20db off your DI box or you will overdrive things.

    The Blend Joker

    Put this my Mic beside your fav. Microphone when recording Vocals, Drag the Volume down on your Daw, after your take, start to raise the volume of the green bullet, and watch the magic happening in the midrange, PUNCHY & WITTY. The reason i got this microphone was mainly for my harmonica set. but i find myself using it on everything side by side my expensive arsenal of microphones. for example when recording drums, i use it as a secondary Room Mic. and the Sound i get is fantastic, pass this through a compressor (Squash It) and get in your face drums.Guitars, Bass Etc... to be clear thats not the best Microphone used alone, Lacks highs and lows, midrangy, PHONE or Radio Effect Kinda Mic. the best for harmonica, Great as The blend Joker with everything
