Looking to buy a dynamic shaker microphone

Postby brianp » Tue Dec 12, 2006 8:41 am

I am looking to buy a dynamic shaker mic w/ 1/4" out. If anyone is interested in parting with one let me know.

Thanks!

Check out our sponsor at Coast to Coast musc - that's where I bought mine and the deal and service seriously can't be beat.

Watch out....you might get a blue note, if those things are still being affixed. (BTW, you aren't up to a little reverse engineering are you Brian...? Don't answer that.)

No reverse engineering. I am just like everyone else I know. A gearhead who wants a new toy. :) Hs there been a problem with the Shakers or am I just not understanding the blue note reference?

Thanks,

Any Forum member that makes a purchase from C2C or makes a donation towards BigRoad operating expenses gets a blue note next to their user name that will appear whenever you post, signifying your support.

You must access C2C through the BigRoad link for Pappy to be able to make the forum/member connection.

Got ya! I sell amps on his site so John and I usually just end up talking on the phone for orders. I will however follow the link in the future so I can get a cool blue note though. :D

I bought a crystal Shaker. The output was weak. The Shaker people were very cool. I sent it back. They sent me a new one. I didn't like it. I sold it.

I have heard the crystal is a brighter mic with less distortion so I went with the dynamic. I have played the dynamic XLR in the past and enjoyed it. I will report in tomorrow.

Thanks!

Yeah, I haven't heard many good things about the crystal. Never tried one myself but I've been told that it's fragile with a weak and brittle tone. the dynamic is the complete opposite - strong, heavy tone and seems like it could survive a hurricane.

I'm curious Brian..........did you ever check out the Madcat? Seems like a neat design and the dynamics that Peter Ruth gets out of it with his hand work is nothing short of amazing.

I haven't had the chance to use one although I was told it didn't really fit my style. The mic didn't come today. I am keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow.

did you ever check out the Madcat?

Everything I've read, and everything I've been told from actual mic owners, indicate that the Madcat has a notoriously low output signal and is recommended for larger amps with sufficient power, ie; Fender Bassman, etc.

Given Brian's propensity for smaller vintage amp clones, I wonder if that's a good matchup. Also note that the mic lends itself to a cleaner more acoustic sound in case you are looking for a dirty brown Chicago tone.
