Overview

The Shaker Madcat harmonica microphone is the ultimate combination of form and function, an intelligently designed, ergonomically shaped harp player’s tool. Comprised of three parts: a center connecting web that fits between the fingers and connects the two pods, the bottom pod houses the dynamic element and the upper pod is an acoustically tuned chamber and tone control, utilizing Shaker’s GNS technology.

In your hands, the Madcat 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 techniques. 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. Just listen to the great Peter “Madcat” Ruth to hear what this mic will allow you to do. The Madcat 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 and you get high output - hot and driven. Maximum flexibility, it’s your choice.

Inspired and co-designed by world-famous harmonica great Peter “Madcat” Ruth.

Big sound in little package

By PHILIP COELHO

from West Bridgewater, MA

Comments about Shaker Madcat Harmonica Microphone:

The folks at Shaker really hit one outta the park with this mic. I've been waiting for a mic like this for years. Getting a tight cup with the bullet mics is difficult for someone with smaller hands but this mic fits into your palm so well, it's like playing with no mic at all. All the 'wah wah' affects that can't be done holding other mics are now available to the amped player using this mic. It's so incredibly small yet the sound and pickup is amazing. I'm playing thru a fender hot rod deluxe and this mic has made it easy to concentrate solely on my playing and not on holding the mic and forming a tight cup. I'm very pleased with this mic. It weighs nothing. A pure pleasure to play with.

Shaker Madcat harmonica mic

By FRANCIS ZITKO

from Henderson, NV

Comments about Shaker Madcat Harmonica Microphone:

After trying several other popular brands of harp mics, the Shaker Madcat solved my problem of not getting enough "cup" with my small hands to get the wah-wah and bending effects I heard other blues harp players get. Held between my middle and ring fingers of the left hand, it is comfortable and secure, and, for me, a dream come true. The Madcat sounds great through my little AC/DC highly portable Pignose amp.

    Comments about Shaker Madcat Harmonica Microphone:

    This is one of the best sounding and certainly the most comfortable and intuative mics I've ever used for playing harmonica. I've had it for years. It's very durable, easy to store (fits nicely in my Mississippi Sax box), and sounds great lve.

      Comments about Shaker Madcat Harmonica Microphone:

      I came across this harmonica mic and decided to give it a try. It has turned out to be a very good investment. It has a natural fit and feel and is comfortable to hold and easily fits between your fingers and stays in place as you play. It's sound recovery is very good and does not produce reverb unless you get it right in front of the amp. I tend to hold my harmonicas a little differently than most other players and wish the mic was able to swivel 180 degrees so the volume knob and cable could be reversed, but it still is a quality product that exceeded my expectations. It stores easily in my case.
