RE: Micing an Echo (was- off on an Irish tangent)

Mickey Raphael, Willie Nelson's longtime harp guy, uses Echo harps quite a 
bit. He plays them (and all his various harps) through a Beyer M88 vocal mic 
hand-held, not on a stand. I'm a bit curious, Steve, if you're playing 
traditional Irish music, why use a Bullet at all? Sounds like an SM58 might 
be a better option. Just a thought.
