Madcat Model w 42" cord and 1/4" female barrel connector
Dynamic element, smooth rotation volume control, extremely technique sensitive, ultimate ergonomic design, comfortable to hold, fantastic feedback rejection
A harmonica microphone that allows you to employ all of your acoustic harmonica technique.
The Shaker Madcat harmonica microphone is the ultimate combination of form and function, an intelligently designed, ergonomically shaped harp player’s tool. Comprised of three parts: a center connecting web that fits between the fingers and connects the two pods, the bottom pod houses the dynamic element and the upper pod is an acoustically tuned chamber and tone control, utilizing Shaker’s GNS technology.
In your hands, the Madcat mic becomes part of a complex system where the harmonica, the microphone and the hands create a new type of instrument, allowing harp players an unbelievable level of control over their sound, their tone, effects, dynamics and techniques. Imagine playing amplified harmonica without having to hold a microphone, retaining all the nuance and hand gestures of acoustic harmonica, but now you're amplified and dangerous. The possibilities are mind blowing. Just listen to the great Peter “Madcat” Ruth to hear what this mic will allow you to do. The Madcat Microphone works great with guitar effects pedals and is extremely feedback resistant. This Shaker microphone opens up a new world of sonic possibilities to the harp player.
If you use a Shaker mic with an impedance-matching transformer into the input of your amp your Shaker mic becomes super charged, driving your amp into aural overdrive. All Shaker harmonica microphones are really two very different units in one. Direct to amp has the traditional Shaker tone and response. Used with a line-matching transformer and you get high output - hot and driven. Maximum flexibility, it’s your choice.
Inspired and co-designed by world-famous harmonica great Peter “Madcat” Ruth.

MADCAT or MAD DOG HOW TO :
Hold Shaker either cat or dog in left hand between fingers, grille pointing at harp. Volume control above your knuckles, harmonica and microphone in same hand. Cup hands around harp and play. Attach coupler to belt, hook microphone in one side, cord to amp in other side, or plug Madcat/Mad Dog directly into wireless sender unit.
VOLUME CONTROL :
The first two thirds of turn is basically off, only the last one third of volume control is active. We designed it that way so that a slight roll of the finger can affect the volume.
AMP SETTING :
Every amp is different, so is every ear. It's up to you. A good place to start with most amps is the bass at 8, mids at 5, treble at 3, adjust to your personal taste and desired tone.

Dear Kazimir, today arrived all material, perfect and thank you for the most appreciated mini harmonica! Best regards and wishes from Italy.
First of all thanks to send this item to Norway, I have been searching everywhere for it but, most companies simply do not send it here.
Kaz, thanks for your help. Look forward to my next purchase through you.
I got it thanks super-fast shipping. The sound of it blows me away!! Compared to the Hohner blues harp. Will get a C from you at some point thanks.
I really appreciate, great service! Will use and recommend your company.
Thank you very much in resolving the issue for me. It's been a pleasure dealing with your company (I am totally satisfied with the last 3 orders I placed and the very fast response). I will sure be looking at your website first for my next purchase. Thanks again.

I'm glad that there is a logical explanation. People sometimes can be hurried or distracted for many reasons. I will continue to be a customer in good faith. Thank you for getting this fixed up.
The bass was received in Honolulu a few days ago with no issues. I truly appreciate you following up on the delivery and my satisfaction of the Beaver Creek Travel Bass. Thanks.
Thanks for the email. Terrific customer service. I believe my issue was at my end. Really appreciate the email. Cheers!
Just wanted to say 'great service.' I ordered some Hohner harmonicas and was really impressed with how quickly they arrived. Terrific!
Thanks Kaz. I just got them, boy that was fast. They are still cold from the transportation: I will try them later and give you feedback.
