Bass Mic in Taiwan
I went from Manila (my home) to Taiwan last Sunday for a one-day
harmonica competition sponsored by a two-year-old harmonica
association there. While there, I saw an interesting bass harmonica
mike setup worth passing along.
Someone took a thin plywood board (1/8") cut slightly smaller than the
back of a bass harmonica and covered it with cloth. Then four
lavalier mikes were strung along the board, held into place by tape.
All four cords ran into an on-off switch (probably also carrying a
battery). From the switch ran one cord to the mixing board. The mike
was convenient to attach to the back of the harmonica, via velcro
Great sound -- full and rich, without mike noises when moving around.
It seems to be the best setup I've seen for bass. Unfortunately, I
had only a moment to look at it, before it was packed away. However,
I can probably get more details through correspondence with my new
Taiwan acquaintances, if anyone is interested.
