How are you using the mic, through the PA, an amp?  I'd like to get some
feedback from someone who's used the mic through a low power tube amp, 
like a Pro Jr, Champ,  Kazoo, etc...  Thanks...  Mark

Mark, I like the Fireball best through my Pro Jr.  because the amp breaks up nicely at low 
volume and so it takes the edge off; the other amps you mention are probably even more 
that way.  (And that isn't to say that it is my favorite microphone through the PJ -- a lot of 
them sound great.)  To my ear, the Fireball is a bit brittle through a higher powered amp 
like a 4x10 -- I prefer controlled reluctance or dynamic for that.  Of course all this is 
highly subjective.  And someone else made a comment I agree with -- it's hard to get the 
cupping/uncupping wah with the fireball.  Also, this has been about using the Fireball 
hand held -- I haven't experimented with it much yet on a stand.  --john k.
