Hello Harmonica Lovers!
This subject is going to be on all the other microphones that can be used other than the “Green Bullet Microphone.”
The Microphone in the pictures is a shure 58 used for a singing microphone as well as a harmonica microphone it is used in Country, Folk, Rock, Jazz, Bluegrass and yes Blues also.
It produces a clear sound compared to the muddy distorted sound you get from a Green Bullet Microphone which is usually used for blues playing and what most blues players prefer. The Shure 58 in an all around microphone like I stated earlier that it’s used for vocal singing as well as harmonica playing through it.
The sound that comes from the Shure 58 is a clear sound unlike the Green Bullet Microphone that’s why it’s prefered for Country, Folk and Rock. In one of the pictures below the Musician in the brown vest is using hand effects by standing away from the microphone to create a sound used in country, folk, rock, jazz and bluegrass.
The harmonica player in the blues shirt is also using hand effects to create a different sound by cupping his hands over the microphone this creates a WaWa sound that gives you the blues sound.
The harmonica player in the picture with the black shirt is me “L.A.” playing thru a wireless microphone to be able to move around while performing. With this microphone it creates a clear crisp sound that I use in my shows to play Country, Folk Classic Rock and more.
I don’t use it so much in Blues, it doesn’t have the sound that I’m looking for like the Green Bullet Microphone or Astatic Blues microphone that does have that muddy gritty sound that blues players look for in blues music.
Have you ever heard of these microphones?
What kind of microphone do you use?
