B-Team Audio has teamed up with musician/engineer/manufacturer, Mark Pirro, as a full service dealer for Placid Audio's professional and unique microphones. We are proud to support Mark's endeavor as a entrepreneur and US manufacturer. It is hard to come by a US made, hand built microphone (or anything for that matter) these days, and we are proud to have found one! Check out the samples, or schedule a demo in our studio if you are in the Miami area.
We will ship worldwide so please contact us for more details if you are overseas.
The Copperphone Harmonica Mini was originally designed for harmonica players as a hand held alternative to the Copperphone. It does have a similar nostalgic character to the sound because it operates within a limited bandwidth (please listen to the provided sound samples). However the Harmonica Mini uses a higher performance modern element and does not utilize a resonant chamber. The result is a microphone that is more sensitive and sounds more direct and bright than the Copperphone.
The Copperphone Harmonica Mini does not require phantom power as it uses a passive dynamic element. It uses a Switchcraft 3 pin male XLR connector and can be connected to any audio gear with 3 pin female XLR connector via an XLR cable. Accidently applying phantom power will not harm the microphone or affect it’s performance.
