The Shure Element
BTW, D ~ I'd forgotten just how amazing this mic sounds - it is KILLER man. I'm getting compliments left and right on its tone. Tell me again, what element did we decide to go with in this sucker?? Refresh my memory…it's a Shure element, yes?

I tested the custom JT30 you made me with the beldon cord and I'm completely happy with your incredible talents and abilities. It's been 10 long years since I had the ability to play through an amplifier and you helped make that possible. I hope to meet you in person some day so you can hear for yourself what "Kingtone" is all about. When I get back on the road I'll let you know when I'll be in Missouri. God Bless you and have a great day!

I play the Hohner 64 with a clean sound. I primarily play jazz and country. I've used it twice. Once in rehearsal and at a gig this past Saturday. I've played it directly through a PA and my Peavey Classic 30 amplifier. I'm going to see how it works tonight at a recording session. This microphone is amazing! I couldn't be happier. It is very easy to use. Everything is made with top notch materials. I've put away my Shure SM58.

Thanks so much for the neat product. It really performed greater than expected. My instrument has never sounded so good amplified. I really appreciate your knowledge and expertise. Please feel free to use me as a reference. God bless.

Dr Tonemeister,

I made sure to get home in time today in case the mic got here. Sure enough the doorbell rang and it was a package..yea!! I took it out and let it warm up like you said while I plugged in my Gibson GA20 and my Sonny Jr Cruncher. I pulled out my best arsenal of about 6 mics including my favorite the Midnight Shift mic, Candy Apple red crystal, a Turner with a smoking CR another Astatic with a Ceramic that a good harp player friend gave me. Oh yea and that great 605 and brown Astatic you did for me.

I can't believe it! Your Astatic with the 46-48 crystal blew them all away. I knew it would sound good, but I wasn't prepared for how good it would sound. I couldn't believe it sounded better than the black CR elements. The bass response was so deep and incredible. The whole thing sounded amazing. I couldn't really turn my amps up with the downstairs neighbor, but I could tell this thing is very powerful with a great tone.

I used my new mic last night at a club in town. I played through the Sonny Jr. and reached the back of the place without going through the PA. Best of all I wasn't too loud, no feed back, and (as advertised) MONSTER TONE! Here's the beauty part. One of my compadres, Steve Scott, came in the joint. We got him up to play; kind of like a test drive. I think you'll be hearing from him. He's one of those techno guys who wants to know "what's in there?" I told him there was only one way to find out and passed along your contact information. Great job, as always.
