Likely has the guts of the Shure 520 'Green Bullet', the favorite mic for most R&B harp players. Nice looking for sure.

Looks like from green-bullet competitors/alternatives like Turner (though admittedly, I don't know a whole heck of a lot about these mics). But here's a line from the Front and Center Mics site:

"You may choose from two types of elements; NOS crystal circa 1980's (USA) or the NOS Turner ceramic circa 1960's (USA)"


So my harmonica-modding friend (who's also a badass player...and a sound designer and composer for games) liked the site Rachel shared and then sent this link to Greg Heumann's site. He's apparently a big deal in the custom-harp mic world. He'll do stuff like wood body and custom grills. Like this one for Rod Piazza (RP):






And many many more. Dig it:

Colour me impressed.
