Summary: The Shure 520DX is the quintessential Blues harp microphone. From its deep, mellow, bassy Chicago Blues sound, to it's crisp highs, it provides the rich tones and growl you need for a true blues harp sound that's like no other microphone. If you're a serious Blues harp player, the 520DX is your microphone. It's elegant form conforms effortlessly to your hand regardless of your playing style.
Summary: Sorry for bad English. This is not my native language. I play the harmonica. My city is not very big. We do not have Shure 520D in music stores. I bought it on Ebay. Now I use the Shure 520D + Vox pathfinder 15r + IBANEZ LF7 LO-FI pedal and Hohner harmonicas. Shure 520D is more convenient than the standard instrument microphones.
This is THE standard of microphone for the true harmonica player bar none!

Summary: Anyone that knows microphones already knows that the Shure 520DX is THE standard when it comes to amplifying a harmonica. The tones of this microphone are bar none the best and forever have been the exacting standard that is used for both live performance as well as recording in a studio. Easy to handle and cradle and get the tones that you want out of it, it is the mic of all the greats who have ever blown harp.
Summary: The Shure 520DX mic really delivers that cool lo-fi sound that brings out the blues in anyone's harmonica playing. It's great for vocals as well. I bought the 520DX to add a new dimension to live performance. I'm Shure there is no better mic...
