Harmonica microphones are used for amplified blues harp but can be used for vocals too in some case, usually if you are looking for that lo-fi vocal sound as used by Jack White and other artists.
Traditionally, crystal harmonica microphones give the original 'Chicago tone' when plugged into a harp amp and dynamic mics give great tone and are generally more rugged. All these harp mics fir sake below are suitable for playing harmonica.
Something to think about when choosing a harp mic is the size of it’s body and will it fit into you cupped hands properly? Many bullet microphones are too big for even average size hands so it may look cool but if a tight seal cannot be made the correct tone cannot be achieved. Other things to consider are lead length, on/off switch and volume control.
