: I just went over your post here and your turn signal mic sounds extremely fascinating. Im real curiouse to know what elements you've put in it and if you have any photos you could post or email me. I'd be real interested in acquiring one of these over a standard bullet because of the size. I'm no mic afficianato nor do I know how to build one. I've recently picked up a Sure SM57 as my first harp mic. I intend to get either a Madcat or a bullet next. But I like the sounds of the smaller profile of the turn signal mic. Get me some details if you can. Much appreciated. Oh, and welcome to the site.

: : Thanks Bill, here is my question... I read in the previous posts on how to build yourself a mic (I-Mic) since I built my first one I have been hooked. I can't pass by an old phone, CB mic, or anything with a mic in it without tearing it apart and building a harp mic out of it. Do I need professional help already? Ok, gotta go I just spotted someone walking past my house with a hands free phone set up on...

Send me your E Mail address and I'll send you a picture of it. I'm new to this and before I knew you could buy mic elements I used what I found around the house. For the turn signal mic I took the mic element from an old dynamic vocal mic. It probably dosn't sound dirty like a real harp mic (I don't have one of those yet) but it does look like one and it's easier to hold.
Talk to you soon,
