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!

      Comments about Digital Reference Red Howler Harmonica Mic:

      This microphone is a fantastic value for what you get out of it. Actually bought one 3 years ago from Guitar Center. Strictly as a back up mic. Price was right. Now the price is a third of that. I'm buying another one, or two. To give to some of my other buds in the bizz. This mic is similiar to a Green Bullet. It works best with a Tube Amp. Especially with my unmodified Epi Valve Junior, which only has a volume control. For some reason this mic has better grunt for Hard Electric Blues in a small venue or the amp mic'ed through a PA than my Astatic, or Green Bullet. Now my louder amps, Fender Tweed Blues Deville, or Peavey Valveking, not so much. I play out at least 8 days a week. I have dropped this mic enumerable times on stage. It has taken a licking and keeps on ticking. It would be a death nell for any of my Crystal Mics. Buy on Today.

        Comments about Digital Reference Red Howler Harmonica Mic:

        I bought this mic as a starter mic, after playing through Shure standard mics. I tried it in a solid state amp and got nothing but feedback and awful sound, but that wasn't the fault of the mic (obviously). Finally I got a Peavy tube amp - a cheaper one and what a world of difference! I also played through a Fender 69 Twin Combo and WOW what a killer sound. This mic can stand up with the bullets most popular among players right now and it looks pretty good.

        I have had it for almost two years now and the paint has begun to fleck away from the guard, but this thing feels great to this day to play through. I have thought of buying a new mic, but this bad little mic has just held it's own and has survived a lot of pain and suffering for us both.

        If I lost it, I would buy another one.

                    Showed up dead. Fortunately, I understand electronics. Upon inspection, one wire had disconnected internally. The wires are welded on poorly. I soldered the break and it works fine now. Other than that it's a nice mix. The wires used inside are extremely thin.

                      I like the long cord. The on/off and volume control knob is handy and easy to use. I wish it had a good case to store and carry. The box has a bit of padding in the bottom, but is not really usable for either storage or carrying. The sound is great. The hand fit is also good.

                      Comments about Digital Reference Red Howler Harmonica Mic:

                      I have owned this little gem for 6 years now, If you play blues harp, buy this. Good and gritty "train coming down the tracks" sound, responds well to bending overblowing and basically indestructible in my experience. I play my harps on this plugged into a vypyr and have experimented with some subtle effects settings finding even for gold hidden in this red mic. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.
