Seller: dollierock (1,423) 98.4%, Location: Delray Beach, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 202756417972 Because of repeat malicious buyers I will no longer ship to Connecticut and California. This listing is for the mic element and rubber gasket only. The JT-30 grill in the photos is not included! This is a brand new ceramic (man made crystal) high impedance harmonica microphone element, perfect for a harmonica pickup played in a "tight cup" but not suited for vocals or Ham radio applications. Do not be shocked by the light weight of this element, it is not empty. It is not a 1950s element lined with lead in a cast iron housing. The wires are very thin if you are a novice at soldering this may not be for you. It will also fit:Astatic 200, Astatic JT-30, Superlux D112C, Red Howler, Cherry Bomb and Shure Green Bullet models. The mic element has a 1 meg ohm input impedance and the large capture area gives a consistent harmonica sound output, peaking at 1 khz and is fairly sharp and resonant at this frequency. I make these from scratch with an aluminum housing, a bimorph and membrane. it is 1 7/8" across or 47mm, and 5/8" or 15mm thick. It fits nicely in a green bullet or jt30 shell with weather stripping (included) or appropriate sized gasket. NEWS! a buyer wrote back:Hello! I just received the crystal, and is already installed in my JT30. It sounds great! and fit perfect in the original rubber of my JT30, I didn't need to use the one you provided. (so if your JT30 gasket isn't cracked the element will fit. just request no gasket and i will give you a 1.80 refund). here is the mic in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYiQ3FX29L0 This is played through a Pignose Hog20 with the squeal on 7, the volume on 4 and the tone on 1. The amp is an arms length away and im getting no feedback holding the element with my bare hands. a housing and rubber gasket will make the mic sound better (not included). Heres some feedback email: Morning. I just wanted to mention that I installed your element into an Astatic JT-30 shell yesterday and it sounds really good. You make a terrific product. I also soldered a .001 capacitor to the volume control between the center (wiper) lead and the positive lead to bleed off some high end treble. Man, it sounds incredible now. You may want to mention this mod to customers that are installing into shells with volume controls. Cheers, Rob fitted your element to an old JT30 shell, have just tried it out, then tried two of myJT30s with 101 crystal elements, then tried yours again. cant find any difference in sound other than your element is slightly louder on the same volume setting, need to order another to go into a s300 shell. Thanks Mike Dear dollierock, yep thanks again just to let you know took some mics to the local blues club and let harp players try out some of my mics jt30s some with original 101 elements some with yours. I hadn't told them about your elements to see what ones they liked guess which ones I've sold !! Put it into a Superlux D112C and it works GREAT!!! thanks! - 16031960 Unlike a natural crystal you can drop this mic or get it in extreme cold or damp and it will not break. I took the grill off my green bullet as well and it fits and looks very nice inside. A 1 meg ohm volume control may be used with this mic. You peel the gasket strip and wrap the sticky side around the element. It is not a permanent stick so you can play with it. Trim the two ends to fit then push the seamed side into the JT-30 chrome grill bottom. then I use a rounded soup spoon sort of like a shoe horn to push in the top. then just screw it on. Because I make these myself you may see things like stamped numbers and minor scratches. they do not affect the play whatsoever. This mic is tested before shipping. This microphone is not meant for any purpose other than playing harmonica. An ohm meter won't tell you anything about the element and depending on your meter can damage the element. Use alligator test clip wires before installing. clip the red wire to the tip of a guitar cord and the black wire to the ring, then go straight to the amp. You must hold the element in your hands in a tight cup to test (like in the video), it will not sound right if you do not. It will sound even better once you use a gasket and install it in a housing. Ceramic and crystal mics are very hot, the tone on the amp should be on 1 or off completely. Move well away from the amp. You may need a feedback killer like a T-pad attenuator (not included) if you want to play at ridiculous volumes. Please read my return policy in full. To get a return the element has to be untampered with dysfunctional and unused. this means you send it back to me with no soldered ends, wires intact, no bad breath, no spit, no mucous, no blood, tobacco juice, no smoke or perfumes.
