Overview

Consisting of a bodypack transmitter with belt clip, a dual diversity UHF receiver, and the innovative Hoodoo Ring microphone, the Hoodoo Hand Harmonica Wireless Microphone System frees you from being tethered to your microphone. You can roam the stage while enjoying perfect mic placement at all times.

The Hoodoo Hand system allows you to use your natural hand cupping and playing techniques while eliminating the need to deal with bulky bullet-style wired microphones that have traditionally been the primary choice for live performance among blues harp players. The patented Hoodoo Ring Microphone is a tiny Lavalier mic that's been tweaked to produce the low-fi, overdriven sound most blues players crave, while still being capable of producing relatively clean output when the music or your style requires it. The mic nestles in a clip with two finger holes that slip over your middle and ring fingers. Hohner includes two clips with different finger hole diameters to fit a wide range of finger sizes. The beauty of the design becomes obvious the moment you begin playing. Without a bulky mic occupying most of the cavity formed by your cupped hands, an acoustic space is created for producing a wide range of effects like flutters and tremolos. And because it's easy to create a tight seal between your hands and mouth, your sound has all the punch and dynamics you could hope for.

The dual-diversity UHF-band receiver has both 1/4" and balanced XLR outputs so you can send your signal to either an amp or the PA. The front panel has a convenient rotary volume knob for fast onstage adjustments and indicators for power, normal and peak signal levels, and lights that indicate which antenna is in use. The system also comes in a durable plastic travel case.

I have a Shure Bullet harmonica that I've used for years. A fine quality harmonica mic. However due to a accident I have limited use of my hand for cupping the mic & harmonica. I've dropped the mic a few times and I have difficulity using the volume knob. The design of the Hohner Hoodoo hand mic works great and gives me more movement for getting the bends & tones I want without the fear of dropping the mic. Hohner once again has hit the mark with design & features. I highly recommend this mic.

Have had the thin gauge wire rip out twice in the past two weeks. Immediately unuseable. Bought new unit to see how wiring connections were made and its wire ripped off on the second day. Its most desireable aspects are eliminated if it can only be used up on stage like a wired mic. In search of getting them repaired. Don't feel like buying a third unit just to do the next show!

Hohner Hoodoo Hand Wireless Microphone

By Harpman Moe

from Chicago, Illinois

Comments about Hohner Hoodoo Hand Harmonica Wireless Microphone System:

I can't even beguin to tell you all how happy I am with this product. I plugged it in and it worked fantastically from the first day. I used it while sitting in with the Linsey Alexander Blues Band here in Chicago and Linsey asked if he could try it and play harmonica. He fell in love with it too and said it was just as good as his Shure wirelesses he uses on his guitart and headset microphone. I've now played 3 gigs with it and have't even worn out the first set of transmitter batteries yet. Every harp player should have one of these.

I'm Impressed.

By Scummy Waters

from Albany, New York

Comments about Hohner Hoodoo Hand Harmonica Wireless Microphone System:

I'm not a Hohner guy. I play Lee Oskar's pretty much exclusively. So, I'm not here to blow Hohner's horn ... or in this case, harp. Up until I tried the HooDoo, I thought "Hohner" was German for "Cheap garbage". Anyway ... this thing really lived up to it's billing. With an amp that has sufficient gain, or good distortion, a ggod harp player can sound like a great harp player. Also ... it's range is reasonable. I was using it from almost 100 feet away and outside of the building where the reciever was. That would cover most situations for most live performances. The only complaint I have is that they made it black. If they made it flesh colored, it would be almost entirely invisible, and would seem like magic. Overall, I would give it a 9.5 on a 1 to 10.

Great Harmonica Mic System

By TheLoneRanger

from Madison

Comments about Hohner Hoodoo Hand Harmonica Wireless Microphone System:

Wow. Impressive.I am porting this through a Peavey Studio Pro 40 guitar amp, not the best thing to be using for the harp, and this system still rocks! Great range and great sound, clean and dirty. I have a Shure 520DX (again, not like the original 520) and to be honest, I like this better. Only negative is the mic cord, which is awful thin and just looks like it could be an issue down the road. I also looked online at Hohner and no parts listed. Accompanying booklet is lacking, too. But so what. This is a great mic!

Hoodoo Hand Mic

By Buck Garrett

from Bangor, PA

Comments about Hohner Hoodoo Hand Harmonica Wireless Microphone System:

I recently purchased the Hoodoo Hand Mic system. It can attach to any PA or Amp. Easy to use. Mic has three sensitivity settings. Best for me is not the "Mic" setting but I can see how it gives the player some flexibility without having to go to the PA or Amp to change controls. Like the freedom of being able to walk around and play right in front of people.

Hoo do you Love

By The mighty Maurice

from Walden, New York

Comments about Hohner Hoodoo Hand Harmonica Wireless Microphone System:

I"ve been blowing harp for over thirty years and this is my first experience with amplification. The minute I saw this mic in the catologe, I knew I had to try it. It arrived about a month ago and I just love playing with this mic. It doesn't interfer in any way with how you would normally play. I run it thru a Line 6 Spider 3 and it has a very good tone on the clean setting. I also get some great sounds using the effects. I highly recommend this wireless system to any and all harp players, be they hobbyist (like me) or working musicians.

I have play out on a couple of stags with it already and love the way I can now interact with the crowds as the Guitar players have done for years. Ok as others will tell you it takes some getting used to but when you figuer this little gadget out WOW!!! You will love as I do. I highly reomment this mic to all serious harp players. You will grow to love it as I have.

Great Wireless Option for Harp Players

By Mr3D

from Chico, CA

Comments about Hohner Hoodoo Hand Harmonica Wireless Microphone System:

I use 3 mikes for harmonica (Golden Melody) amplfication: the venerable Shure Green Bullet, a locally produced product called the Cherub, and my latest acquisition, the Hohner Hoodoo Hand wireless mike system. Play all three through a Fender Blues Junior amp. Of these mikes, my favorite by far is the Hohner. Here's what it has going for it: 1. Loud- I can get more volume out of the Blues Junior without feedback for those gigs when the amp is not miked into a soundboard.2. Versatile- This mike can get loud while remaining very clean. This is important when I play country or any other style that calls for multiple-note chords with cupping effects. It can also sound a bit crunchy when I set the amp to "fat", or dial up the pre-amp volume for single-note playing.3. Freedom- I LOVE the ability to move around the stage without being tethered by a cord. This can't be fully appreciated until you try it. It is just a great feeling. It is also nice to have virtually zero weight in your hand (especially compared to the Shure.3. Value- For a pro-quality wireless system, this is very reasonable. Now for the downside: the transmitter that you wear on your belt requires 2 batteries, and these sometimes do not usually last through an entire performance. Unless you change them proactively after each set you can be playing your heart out and in the middle of a song the amplification just dies. I solve this problem by using rechargeable batteries and changing them out frequently.If you want a mike that delivers a really distorted electric blues sound, the Green Bullet can't be beat, and the Cherub works great for the same with much lighter weight. But if you want an excellent loud and clean sound, free of feedback and cord, that can also produce a mildly overdriven tone, get this mike system. For me the Hohner Hoodoo Hand is just about perfect.
