: Explain briefly in laymans terms the difference between
: low impedence and high impedence mic's. Is high better for harp? Also I've seen some as 20K and 50K, don't know what that means. Thanks.
I try to keep awnsers simple, so here goes, Impedance = resistance With that in mind think of guitar amps as High Impedance, so Mics like the Green Bullet, sold with the 1/4 guitar jack on the end of the cord are High Impedance. Mics like the Shure 57 and 58 are low impedance and are plugged into PA's. Now with a low to high impedance adapter you can plug these into Guitar amps and effects. To really confuse this issue, the Shure 545 Mic is dual impedance, meaning you can change it from hi to low internally. Yes High is better for harp when using a guitar amp. The numbers you refer to are usually frequency response ratings. High impedance mics, Green Bullet, Jt-30, Blues Blaster, Crystal Ball, I hope this helps you.............bluz
