just a little bit and it will jump to the back of your throat.. you will feel the note vibrate full and fat tone.
when you get use to this try other notes,warbles and chords.it`s a light feel thing but when you hit it you`ll
sound much different... than when you play amped you`ll see a new tone.e.g. any mic. pluged into a champ
amp will have a killer sound. also-think of gospel singing rather than folksie tone.......

I have one I converted to a switchcraft connector. I don't like fixed cables. It's not as good as my HiZ EV630, or my JT30 with '63 Shure CM, but it is not a bad mic for the money, better value than either a new 520DX or Hohner Blues Blaster

The cable is secure, gives a great signal and is a good length. i am glad i invested in this cable and the converter as i plan to purchase more mic's over the years.
so on the whole, £13 for a good mic, £10 for xlr cable, £7 for converter. £30 in total.
one final note. is it ok to cup the mic around the lower half of the bulbous head? also will the mic get damaged if the harp is blown touching the mic head? is it too close?[/quote]

..Can't get anything much cheaper than that I would think... :) Cupping the mic around the bulbous head (the wndscreen?) may make it slightly more liable to feedback....if it's a windscreen like an SM58 jamming the harp hard up against it won't damage the element which is behind the screen a fair bit...

...actually having a bit of room inside your cup between the harp and the mike may help your tone a little as well...

so, i tried the harp strait into the jack input my small mixer, very good reproduction of the accoustic sound. other than eq though, nothing else. no compression, no gate, no reverb, no overdrive. also the lead was utter, utter turd; slightly loose, and went snap, crackle and pop.
bit the bullet (forgive the pun) on sunday and invested in a very pretty blue xlr to xlr cable. can you believe they want £9.99? nonsense.
