An ergonomic, dynamic harp mic with a rich voice, clear treble tones, and lots of bottom end.

Shaker's Mad Dog harmonica microphone adds a totally new dimension for harp players to explore. Imagine a mic with a full, rich voice; a lot of bottom end; and a mid-range with complex overtones and smooth, clear treble-that's the Mad Dog. Now imagine a microphone the size of a walnut that's so ergonomically perfect that it stays just where you put it between the webbing of your fingers, eliminating hand fatigue and freeing your hands for gestures, while giving you the ability to wail without worry. The Shaker harmonica mic features a purposeful shape, a large-diameter dynamic element housed in an injection molded sono resin case, and it's distinctly voiced to emphasize lower mid frequencies, creamy tonality, and a great response. You'll develop new techniques never before available to harp players. The Mad Dog microphone has a more aggressive, almost industrial look and the design is a balance of form and function. It's a serious tool for serious harp players. Shakey Joe of Shaker mics says, "The Mad Dog is so awesome it even makes me sound good!"

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 harp 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.

Howling Dog

Comments about Shaker Mad Dog Harmonica Microphone:

Shaker's Mad Dog harmonica mic is dine-o-might! Lightweight and made to fit your hand, this mic punches the lower ranges like a sub, but is still true and raw on the high end. Gives me the sound I have been looking for. Good bye heavy bullets and hello Mad Dog and some wah wah. The sound of the Mad Dog is all Shaker said it was and Shaker was right on about the comfort and easy feel of Mad Dog. If you blow harp you owe it to yourself to check one of these bad boy out! Music 132 delivered the unit in perfect condition, and within five work days of placing the order. Thanks one and all.

I love it

Comments about Shaker Mad Dog Harmonica Microphone:

I play harp mainly at open mics, and mostly use whatever house mic is handy, usually I'm happy with the results, but there have been a few times where feedback was a problem. I've borrowed a Green Bullet on occasion but it never really felt comfortable. Last night got a chance to test the Mad Dog out at our weekly jam and I fell in love with it immediately. The microphone is extremely easy to hold, I was almost unaware of its presence, it almost feels part of you. Hand effects are easy. I'd say that the mic is very user friendly. The audio quality is clean, and sounds very nice, much like my harmonica with a bit more bass, and since it is cupped in your hands there is no feedback. All in all, so far this is my favorite harmonica mic of anything that I've ever used. Buy one if you can, well worth the $$.
