Evolved from the Bullet Buddy - Original / Acoustic; This new Bullet Buddy has been designed with hands free use specifically in mind. It is smaller than the Original Bullet Buddy and is more comfortable to use in a neck rack*. It omits the sound chamber and rear 'wha holes' of the Original Bullet Buddy's design so that the mic's element is brought as close as possible to the harmonica for maximum 'compression' of the sound.
It can still be used hand-held if you wish or with the appropriate Ammo Clip** and also supports the same set of mic adapters that the other types of Bullet Buddy's use.
Please note that harmonicas, microphones & Ammo Clips pictured are for illustration only and are not included.
*The Bullet Buddy has been designed to fit the Konig & Meyer 14615 specifically. Other types of neck rack are not guaranteed to be suitable.
**The Bullet Buddy for 520/D112C, JT-30 & Bulletini fit the corresponding Ammo Clips. Used with a vocal mic (e.g. SM57 or SM58), the unit fits into a regular standard or large mic clip
