Overview

This is the original Shaker. It broke all the rules 22 years ago, and is still giving harp players a big wall of sound in a smaller, easier-to-cup blues tool. It is designed for harp players seeking huge, fat tone, and strong harmonic content with almost no feedback.

The volume control has 11 micro-detents, or clicks, that tells you where your mic volume is set at, giving you a point of reference and more control of your sound.


All Shaker mics are designed as hybrid units, which means they utilize dynamic low-z elements wired like a guitar in high-z mode. Plug any Shaker directly into any amp, it works awesome, giving you great tone, response and dynamics (The Shaker Sound).


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.

Features

  • Ergonomic design (Easy to hold and cup)
  • Eleven micro-detent volume control
  • Modified positive contact 1/4 in.guitar type connector (use any guitar cord)
  • Wireless system compatible
  • Microphone body and grille are made of a special high-strength thermo resin combo (Shaker Sono Resin)
  • Handmade in Arkansas, USA

Excellent MIC

By Eddie

from Pa.

Comments about Shaker Dynamic Handmade Harmonica Mic 1/4-Inch Jack:

Got this mic yesterday and it sounds EXCELLENT. Very easy to hold. VERY LIGHT, feels like your just holding the weight of the mic cable instead of the mic. Volume control on the mic itself is very handy. Great sound, clean or with effects. Highly recommend .

As advertised

Comments about Shaker Dynamic Handmade Harmonica Mic 1/4-Inch Jack:

This microphone is everything Shaker says. Fat tone, no feedback, cups easily, etc. I knew this was the right mic for me as soon as I plugged it in and played a little. Thanks Shaker Joe and Guitar Center!

    Comments about Shaker Dynamic Handmade Harmonica Mic 1/4-Inch Jack:

    This is a warm little mic that grows some hair as you turn it up! I gig about 3 nights a week and I've had this mic for about 5 yrs, I'm just getting a new one because, after 5 yrs of dropping it on the stage floor and banging around in my gig bag, the element started to rattle inside the housing and I had to replace it. Not replacing it was not an option for me. I have two "go-to" harp mics and this is one of them. The other mic I use is substantially hotter than this mic, but the Shaker Dynamic is very resistant to feedback which allows me to turn my amp up 3 times louder and then I get to benefit of a little warm tube distortion.

    Wow! Sounds as good as any of the more expensive units. Has that nice, "Chicago" classic sound even through a clean amp. Easy to use and volume control detents are great. Easy to hold an tough.

    So Far, So Good

    By James

    Comments about Shaker Dynamic Handmade Harmonica Mic 1/4-Inch Jack:

    I use the mic for live club performances in a blues and rock band. I decided to try this because of the smaller size and weight as compared to my green bullet. I plugged it straight into my small amp and was a little disappointed with the low volume level, apparently due to it being low impedance. Then ran it through a SansAmp and turned on the phantom power and plugged it straight into the mixing board. This gave me a satisfactory volume level. I like the tone, a little more traditional bluesy, fatter and smoother than the bullet. It may take me a bit to get used to the size and shape after years with a bullet, but I've only used it so far at one rehearsal, and it was starting to feel pretty good by the end of the night. I like the smaller size and lighter weight as it is easier to fully cup the mic. I also like the fact that it has a 1/4 plug rather than an attached cord. The cord on my bullet started to short out which is the main reason I started looking for an alternative. I also like the "click" volume nob. This could easily get to a four star rating with a little more use.
