The Dyna-Mic is a condenser microphone, with an inbuilt pre-amp designed specifically for harmonica. The pre-amp itself determines the sound color of the microphone and is available clean on our Classic model or with adjustable overdrive on our Firebird model. Thanks to these pre-amps doing most of the work, both models of Dyna-Mic sound big and bluesy, whether plugged into your favorite amplifier or going direct into a PA or recording console.
The other secret to Dyna-Mic’s amazing tone comes from the mic chamber itself, which is shaped and tuned to give an even response across the entire harmonica with all notes sounding clearly at equal volume. The days of shifting your harmonica across a mic to move from one end to another on the harmonica are gone!
