Re: [Harp-L] Harmonica mic

The Red Howler is a high impedance microphone and most mic inputs on PAs are low impedance. If impedances are not matched you will get poor performance. You need to use a DI box or other impedance matching device, or plug the mic into an instrument or other high impedance input on the PA.ÂWinslow Yerxa
