Shaker Mad Dog Model with 42" cord & 1/4" female barrel connector
Dynamic element, smooth rotation volume control, 2nd generation Madcat, for players who love the ease of using a Madcat but want
a bigger bottom end & creamy overall overtone.
An ergonomic, dynamic harp mic with a rich voice, clear treble tones, and lots of bottom end.
The Shaker Mad Dog microphone is a second-generation takeoff of the great Shaker Madcat Microphone. With its specially designed
larger dynamic element, it emphasizes lower-mid frequencies giving it a specific voice of it’s own. With a frequency response range
of 40 - 6,000 Hz, it has a big, warm tonality with a hint of compression. It consists of of three parts: a center connecting web that fits
between the fingers and connects the two pods, a bottom pod that houses the dynamic element, and an upper pod that is an
acoustically tuned chamber and tone control that Shaker’s GNS technology.
 
In the player’s hands, the Mad Dog 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 technique. 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. The Mad Dog 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: High output, hot and driven. Maximum
flexibility, it’s your choice.

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.
