Here is another Honkin' classic find. The Akai ADM-8 is perhaps one of the most petite vintage microphones I have come across but geez, what this vintage mic may lack in size boy does it make up for it in tone.

The smaller size mic however is actually a great attribute in many ways, it fits into smaller hands easily, it packs away into a smaller case, it's lighter so also less vulnernable to breaking through dropping, there really is a lot going for this little vintage microphone.

Originally an old tape microphone from the 60's/70's these old Akai mics have proved quite popular with harp players in the know.

What makes these kind of mics great is they are virtually unknown to most harmonica players, everybody talking about vastly expensive bullet shaped mics but when you check out the youtube clip you will see there is no real reason for this, pick up this mic at a fraction of the cost and have something real to talk about down the blues club from the usual harp mic conversations.

The mic has a good sized lead with a 1/4 inch jack ready to plug in and play into you harmonica amplifier. If you aint got one of those either, let me know and I will try to match you up with something just a cool. Stick on some vintage delay and you will be sounding like a super cool blues player in no time.

Check out Mr Ron Sunshine in the video cip to see this vintage mic really can do.

A real one-off and a trully great sounding harp mic, you won't be dissapointed.
