I started making these now after i got a request from a friend that he needed a harmonic mic but wanted something alittle unique. Well i figured since i never saw one made out of bone before that should fit his The second mic i added a volume control to it which seems to be a nice added feature. I used dynamic microphone elements and they have a great responce. The all bone one i just finished yesterday, it`s small and compact with a great look.

Beautiful workmanship and a truly unique mic. Definitely one of a kind.

Love the bolo’s you did in the past. Sweet.

That looks and sounds like a great idea! I play a chromatic harmonica and am quite tired of fighting the conventional mike. How does it work? Do you have it mounted on a stand or hold it with the hands along with the harmonica?

Their held in your hand, the all bone one is going to be my production model. It`s smaller and more compact, plus i can still do some nice carvings on the piece. I started 5 of them for a dealer that sells my wares for me out in Az. he`ll put them on his web site.
