The Shaker WSB has been designed to be Shaker's most affordable crystal microphone, voiced specifically for harmonicas. It's a great blues tool, hard-wired with a 10-foot cable and a 1/4" plug, and it can even act as a great back up mic. It's a great beginner mic that's easy on the wallet, yet gives professional performance and awesome tone, along with great feedback rejection. The mic is extremely economical, has hot crystal element, is voiced to cut through other sounds, has a clear and aggressive tone, and is ergonomically designed to be very easy to hold.
Shaker Harmonica Microphones are part of a sophisticated music making system, one that includes the harmonica, the player's hands, the microphone, the amp, and the player's personal techniques. Traditional methods of measuring response and behavior become pretty much irrelevant because Shaker's don't fit strictly into the established categories of polar patterns. By using a sampling of the harmonica's sound and directing it through acoustic ports into a volume-tuned chamber, Shaker mics become, in essence, miniature hand-held recording studios. This is known as Shaker GNS technology, or good noise sampling, resulting in great tone, extreme technique sensitivity, and tremendous feedback. Designed and engineered by Shakey Joe, these mics are totally handmade in the US and use as many American-made parts as possible, making Shaker microphones the real deal. Made in the Arizona desert by harp players, for harp players.
