Specifically for harps players who swear by the vintage crystal element sound.
The Shaker Crystal is Shaker's original harmonica microphone. Born in 1992, the Crystal Shaker Microphone's
voice is accurate and clear with traditional crystal breakup and tremendous presence. A Hi-Z (high output impedance) microphone
the Shaker Crystal breaks up with true ice-pick-in-the-ear crystal distortion characteristics when pushed hard.
Crystal harmonica mic has more of an accurate sound and less tonal coloration than Shaker's Dynamic mics. Some call it cleaner,
Shaker says it has more acoustic clarity. When you need to cut through a thick rhythm section, this harp mic has the in-your-face
presence and crystal edge to get the job done. This Shaker harmonica mic also has fantastic feedback rejection and is housed
in the same indestructible thermal resin casing as Shaker's Dyno mic, so it's just as ergonomic and as easy to hold.
Harmonica Microphones are part of a complex 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 utilizing 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 utilize as many American-made parts as possible, making Shaker microphones the real deal. Made in the
Arizona desert by harp players, for harp players.
