Today I took the beer cooler idea and added a big hole in the bottom so air can escape. then I lined it with a paper towel. It all fit together in rack easily and I dig the sound. It is not noticably heavier than with just a harp in the rack. the tie clip mic is encased in a pen top. I used the clip on the pen to hold it on the beer can cooler via sliting the cooler and running the pen top through it. Here are my first attempts with this new set up. Walter

Walterharp on the bushman/MBH forum sent me a tiny little mic he built to try out. I hooked it up to my princeton reverb reissue (stock except eurotubes) and had to run my guitar direct into a preamp (I got to buy a vibro champ). I took an empty toilet roll and cut it open and added some paper towels to the inside. Then I duct taped it in place, fitted it over a bushman delta frost (A and also stock) and slid the tiny mic in against the harp. This added somewhat of a hand cupping effect. So off I hit the recording button and here is what I got. there is still a lot of bleeding of acoustic harp into the vocal mic and vocal into the bassed out/distorted harp amp. Also the harp mic has a buzz to it (maybe I am doing something wrong with the hook up?). All in all I think it is a good start. I may buy some of that sound deading foam they put in computers to quiet them down in recording studios inside the toilet paper roll to see if that isolates it a bit more. Here are the results- all words and music spontaneouslsy created and recorded! Walter
