The Bullet Buddy was designed for those who find it difficult or impractical to form an airtight 'cup' around the harmonica and microphone wiith their hands. It fixes together your harmonica and microphone with a sound chamber for great 'boxy' sound. It also has two removable plugs on the back of the sound chamber so you can still get some dynamics in the sound if you require.
Powerful neodynium magnets are employed to ensure a firm hold in the Bullet Buddy's gripper, even for thinner models of harmonica (so long as they have ferrous cover plates).
The Bullet Buddy can also be used without a microphone as a harmonica mute. The overall external volume of the harmonica (when not amplified) is reduced by about 10% and given a warm 'boxy' sound. Stuff a bandanna inside to deaden the sound even more.
Combine it with an Ammo Clip* for easy hands free use. A great solution for those wanting to play guitar and harmonica at the same time, but without a cumbersome and restrictive neck mounted holder, whist still bennefiting from that cupped sound. No gaffa tape required!
Please note that harmonicas, microphones & Ammo Clips pictured are for illustration only and are not included.
*The Bullet Buddy for 520/D112c and JT-30 fit the standard corresponding Ammo Clips. The Bulletini® requires a slightly modified version. Please contact us if it is something you need.
