Re: More on mics
<Dead JT-30 crystal elements>
Crystal elements eventually fail. Being made from a water soluble salt,
they eventually absorb water and die. However, their best sound is when
they have picked up a little water and are heading south.
The elements themselves are not repairable - they're throw-away items.
Kevins Harps (800-27-HARP-N) lists crystal and ceramic elements for $21.95
each. It wouldn't be a bad idea to carry a spare if the JT-30 or similar is
your ONLY harp mic.
On the job, I carry a Green Bullet, JT-30, my custom rack pickup, and a
spare rack and Strnad rack mic with low-Z to high-Z transformer (it really
helps!) I also carry a couple of vocal mics.
Paranoid? Nope - experienced!
