I have the Shaker Madcat. Made by Peter (Madcat) Ruth. I.like it very much It dose not have the grit of a bullet mike, but it allows more freedom for hand techniques.
: Always on the lookout for new advancements in harp mic design. Well, I found a few more. I've seen and used a Honker hand/finger clip mic but it had it's drawbacks. So I came across these little numbers. The Shaker Madcat and Barcus-Berry 5600 Harmonica Mic. Anyone interested in seeing them I can shoot you an email to the web sites. They look to be interesting concepts, but whos to say anything bout the mechanics, sound and durability of these little finds? Anyone out there familiar with these mic's? The 5600 comes with a preamp unlike the Madcat. I'm not yet sure who makes the Madcat though. When and if I find out, I'll drop a link.
: Take care all.
