you will not go wrong working with greg on a mic. if you're like a lot of us harp guys you'll end up trying/buying a few different mics and settling into your favorites over a little time. it really takes just getting out live with a band and getting the feel of different elements and shells.

A BluesBlaster with a CM, a proper gasket AND that horrendous XLR connector and VC removed and replaced with a screw-on connector in the rear hole is even better - makes it a proper JT30. As it happens - I have one for sale for $195 if anyone is interested.
Yeah, well I have a confession to make. When I said "hard-wired".. it's actually worse than that: I had an XLR connector put on about 5" below the housing, so I've got this shiny coupling dangling below my chin when I play :lol: . It doesn't bother me at all, and I can switch it with my Blaster (but I never do). I don't use my Blaster unless my 520's got an issue. I don't like the frequency response of the stock Blaster. Like I said, because of the way the volume/gain knob works... almost like a 3-stage gain switch, you gotta mate the power output of the amp you're using to the situation you're playing in. I'm being picky though; If I had to use it all the time, I'd be just fine. I prefer the narrower freq.response of the 520.

AND SLIM, I've never played through one of those Shakers. They're not in the "Old Testament", so it ain't scriptural :lol: I'd go custom before I did that, but that's just my half-assed ignorant/uneducated opinion.

for example,if you had a screw on connector on both your blues blaster and your 520,you could switch between them in seconds.i call that handy,and it could add to your show.

also,with the right connector,gasket and element your blues blaster would be a pretty bad a$$ is basically a jt-30 shell,that's hard to beat.if it isn't doing it for you,hot rod it!(or sell it and buy one of greg's wooden mics,haha )a blues blaster with a CM and proper gasket ( )is quite a formidable mic indeed.

hey jeff,a cool thing greg could do is add a screw on connector to your 520,then you wouldn't have to worry about the cable anymore.
Thanks bottleneck. I think the problem's fixed though. It's a 520DX, so there's no actual's hardwired, which was part of the problem,but when my guy fixed the ground short he put a 2" sleeve around the cable by the entry hole and it took the pressure off that section. We had put a shrink wrap around it earlier, but it wasn't heavy enough to protect the cable from flexing too much up there. It seems to be holding up better now, but we'll see how it does with prolonged use. If I invest more $$ in mics I'd try out one of those wood bullets first. I like the frequency response of the 520, so I'm gonna keep usin' it as my main mic; I play nearly all low volume situations and that 520 mates up to my 5-watt Epi extremely well.. it sounds great. If I need more highs, I can eq or go to one of my other mics. The 515 is nice for that, 'cuz it stops at 10k, unlike the 57 or 58...and then there's always the "Mattel" Bluesblaster......

... P.S. - $700 for a harp mic is ridiculous...

My sentiments exactly; which is why, when and if I pull the trigger on this, you will get the call.

PS - What do you know about the Turner mics?
