the shell of the torpedo has one intriguing feature, that's the vents along the sides of the shell. supposedly this allows more hand effects but i personally have not discovered anything earth-shakingly original about the vents. i have not spent a lot of time using the mic but have had it out to a jam 3 or 4 times and played through the p.a. with it. it IS more comfortable for me to hold with a harp than an sm57 or sm58, but the element is fairly similar. it did come with a small clamp that screws onto a mic stand which is a decent idea too.

greg heumann at blowsmeawaydotcom suggested that i keep the shell, swap to a high-z element like a cm or crystal, and change the connector to a screw-on type. maybe add a volume control. he does some great things to mics of many different flavors and also builds very nice bullet shells. but currently my torpedo is on the shelf, since my work hours have been cut!

when i can afford to, i think i may go with a compact 1/4" female jack in place of the xlr connector and swap to a cm element and a vol pot. i do like the light weight of the shell and it looks good from the builder, decent chrome and all.

there's my 2 cents!
