The BlowsMeAway Bulletini-VC Harmonica Microphone is “The tiny bullet harmonica mic with the great big tone” that comes with volume control. Blues harp players love bullet-shaped mics, however they can often be too big, heavy and difficult to cup, which is essential for creating a great tone. With the BlowsMeAway Bulletini Harmonica Mic, there’s finally a small enough bullet mic with huge tone, thanks to The Heumann Elementtm
There have been sub-sized harp mics on the market for years. Some favourite vintage elements – Shure CM and CR’s, Shure, Astatic and Brush crystals – don’t fit shells much smaller than the traditional “JT30-size” bullets. In order to produce smaller mics, builders resort to using small, inferior elements. Their sound just doesn’t measure up to the BlowsMeAway Bulletini Harmonica Microphone.
The Bulletini is different, because it uses The Heumann Elementtm. The Heumann Element is a brand new high impedance dynamic element developed specifically for harp players. It is in fact the ONLY element ever developed specifically for harp. It is made from a modern vocal mic element to which I make both mechanical and electrical modifications. It has big, fat tone with plenty of bass. Ronnie Shellist says it reminds him of a vintage Ceramic element but with more output. So far it makes every small amp it has been tested with, including Kalamazoo, Memphis Mini and the Harp Train 10 sound better than anything else I know.
The BlowsMeAway Bulletini-VC helps beginners and intermediate players alike sound better, nevertheless pro harp players enjoy it too. Just ask Billy Branch, Jon Gindick, Adam Gussow, Deak Harp, Aki Kumar, JJ Milteau, Darrell Nulisch, Charlie Musselwhite, Mickey Raphael, Andy Santana, Ronnie Shellist, Hank Shreve… and the list keeps on growing!
