Shure 520DX Harmonica Microphone

A high-performance cardioid dynamic kick drum microphone tuned to capture low-end punch. Includes 15' XLR cable and storage bag.
  • Tailored frequency response is smooth and extended. Tuned specifically for kick drum applications.
  • Cardioid polar pattern picks up the most sound from in front of the microphone and some sound from the sides. Less susceptible to feedback in high volume settings.
  • Dynamic cartridge has a simple, rugged coil. Handles extreme volume levels without distortion.
  • Cartridge includes a neodymium magnet for high output level.
  • Internal shock mount for reduced handling noise.

With its signature green and chrome die-cast casing, the 520DX "Green Bullet" holds a spot in history as the definitive blues harp voice.

The 520DX features a volume control knob at the base of the microphone that allows users to make adjustments to suit their needs during live performance. An attached cable with a standard 1/4-inch plug allows the microphone to be connected to a high-impedance device. Contoured to fit perfectly between harmonica and hands, it can also be used for distinct, lo-fi vocals.
