Shaker Mad Cat Harmonica Microphone
The Shaker Mad Cat model doesn't look like any other microphone. It doesn't respond like any microphone ever produced; it is a totally new approach to harmonica amplification. The design is radical, the shape is functionally perfect, the technology is typical Shaker, way ahead of the rest. The Shaker Mad Cat has a unique new design which enables you to amplify not only the sound of the harp, but all the hand shaped tones usually associated with acoustic harmonica playing. With the Shaker Madcat you can, for the first time, mic the natural wah-wah sound of a harmonica from inside your cupped hands. This microphone picks up all of the sounds produced within the variable acoustic chamber created by your cupped hands.
It has been designed the same as all of our mics, "by harp players for harp players". It's the real deal. If you want more volume from your Mad Cat, use an impedance matching transformer at the amp. This increases the amps output by 2 or 3 times. So in essence, you're getting 2 microphones rolled into 1.
Here are the two set up options with the accessories needed.
1.) If you are looking for a classic, warm, smooth sound with great dynamics and tone you might need to turn your amp higher than expected ( 7 might be a good start ) and you will need a guitar/instrument cable.
2.) If you are looking for smoking hot & over the top, nasty & loud you will need the 1/4" M to XLR M Special Shaker cable and either of the matching impedance transformers. All accessories are shown the in drop down menu.
Tech Stuff That Applies to All Shaker Microphones
All Shaker mics are Hybrid Tone Tools. They utilize low Z elements wired as Hi Z units. This produces the distinctive Shaker tonality and response when coupled with our GNS (Good Noise Sampling) technology. GNS also reduces feedback to almost nothing. If you want to get louder, just utilize a special Shaker 1/4" M to XLR M cable into an impedance matching transformer at the input of your amp and zappo! KaBoom! It goes way loud and really pushes your amp. All these accessories are available on this listing.
SHAKER MICROPHONE WARRANTY POLICY
Shaker Microphone guarantees to replace or repair (at our option) the Shaker Microphone for a period of 1 year from the date of the original purchase if found to be a defect of manufacturer. (Original receipt/invoice is required for any warranty work.) This guarantee includes parts & labor. This guarantee does not include the finish or damages caused by TAMPERING or ABUSE. This is very important, so please note: Send your mic directly to us, Shaker Microphone, and we'll take care of you personally, and do not go thru your dealer/store or distributor. If you try to fix the mic yourself, or tamper with it, it does negate the warranty. Please include the cost of return shipping in the box with the mic, or contact info. Also, after a year we will repair your microphone for a fee of approximately $35 plus the return shipping. Thanks for your compliance in this matter and for being a "Shaker Player"!
