Volume control for old Green Bullet???

Very old Green Bullet I'd like to have a volume control put on. Is this possible? If so anyone know where I can have it done? Thanks JOE

Yep, you can add a volume control to just about any of the common harp mics.

I have made controls similar to this one both with Switchcraft and 1/4" connectors... They keep the mic stock and are interchangeable with other mics... They work well and prevent you from hitting the volume while playing... Here's a link to one of the in-line controls... If you want a volume pot hard wired and installed to the mic, I can do that for you... Drop me a line...

For the GB's, make sure the pot value (whenever you use CM or CR cartridges in them) is not more than 250K ohms, and if you use then newer ones with the dynamic cartridges, generally not higher than 100K ohms and on thes emikes, unless you put in a ceramic or crystal cartridge, NEVER use 5meg ohm pots in them.
