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

The Shaker Mad Dog microphone is a second-generation takeoff of the great Shaker Madcat Microphone. With its specially designed larger dynamic element, it emphasizes lower-mid frequencies giving it a specific voice of it’s own. With a frequency response range of 40 - 6,000 Hz, it has a big, warm tonality with a hint of compression. It consists of of three parts: a center connecting web that fits between the fingers and connects the two pods, a bottom pod that houses the dynamic element, and an upper pod that is an acoustically tuned chamber and tone control that Shaker’s GNS technology.

In the player’s hands, the Mad Dog 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 technique. 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. The Mad Dog 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: High output, hot and driven. Maximum flexibility, it’s your choice.

Howling Dog


from Belfair, WA

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 $$.
