Overview

The Shaker Mad Dog microphone is a second-generation takeoff of the great Shaker Madcat Microphone. With its specially designed larger dynamic element, it emphasizes lower-mid frequencies giving it a specific voice of it’s own. With a frequency response range of 40 - 6,000 Hz, it has a big, warm tonality with a hint of compression. It consists of of three parts: a center connecting web that fits between the fingers and connects the two pods, a bottom pod that houses the dynamic element, and an upper pod that is an acoustically tuned chamber and tone control that Shaker’s GNS technology.

In the player’s hands, the Mad Dog mic becomes part of a complex system where the harmonica, the microphone and the hands create a new type of instrument allowing harp players an unbelievable level of control over their sound, their tone, effects, dynamics and technique. Imagine playing amplified harmonica without having to hold a microphone, retaining all the nuance and hand gestures of acoustic harmonica but now you're amplified and dangerous. The possibilities are mind blowing. The Mad Dog Microphone works great with guitar effects pedals and is extremely feedback resistant. This Shaker microphone opens up a new world of sonic possibilities to the harp player.

If you use a Shaker mic with an impedance matching transformer into the input of your amp your Shaker mic becomes super charged, driving your amp into aural overdrive. All Shaker harmonica microphones are really two very different units in one. Direct to amp has the traditional Shaker tone and response. Used with a line-matching transformer: High output, hot and driven. Maximum flexibility, it’s your choice.

Good Mic

By D.A. Souza

from Eagle Point OR

Comments about Shaker Mad Dog Harmonica Microphone:

This mic is the right size and very light weight. The volume control is smoothe and feedback is minimal. It projects every nuance of your playing style and is made by an outfit that really cares about it's products.

Comments about Shaker Mad Dog Harmonica Microphone:

I saw some videos and reviews on you tube and I became convinced . These cats took harmonica mikes to another level by thinking outside of the box. No more heavy and clunky harmonica microphones that feed back all the time. You have to practically hold it next to your amp for it too feedback. Really ergonomic too, these guys must have asked harp players what they wanted. I also like the fact that they make 2 models ( Mad Cat & Mad Dog ) ,because harmonica microphones are not one size fits all. I chose the " mad dog " for that deep Chicago blues sound. I love the fact that it's made in the U.S.A. , and every single part down to the box it came in. I bought this from GUITAR CENTER because they were the first big box chain store to carry it. I shouldn't have to wait for a year or two for a store to decide to carry a product. They should look out for me, and GUITAR CENTER did just that . I'm very satisfied, and can't wait to see what products this company manufactures next .

nice tone , great sound

By jacob workman

from lexington ky

Comments about Shaker Mad Dog Harmonica Microphone:

This one is larger, hand sounds are harder, but still doable. played through a bugera v22, and this is my go to setup. I prefer this MIC over the usual bullet, and prefer non held mics over mics, but this one is right.
