[Harp-L] Chromatic mic
Sun May 1 14:16:42 EDT 2016
I use a Radio Shack 33-3013 Tie-clip/peanut/electret mic. It has a clean response and is so tiny that you can completely enclose it in your hand where it is completely responsive to cupping effects. The 1/8” cable exits your cup between your fingers. It uses a button battery that lasts for many hours IF you remember to turn it off. It needs some adapters to go from 1/8” plug to 1/4” plug or XLR. I understand that Radio Shack may have discontinued it but it is available on ebay for as little as $10.
I suggest that you try it. I think that you will like it. If you don’t, you have most of your budget still available for a more traditional mic.
