Blues harp players love bullet-shaped mics. But they can be big, heavy and hard to cup, which is essential for great tone. Finally, there's a tiny bullet mic with huge tone, thanks to The Heumann Elementtm. (Beware of impostors! Only Bulletini has this proven element. See below for videos.)
 
There have been sub-sized harp mics on the market for years. However our favorite vintage elements - Shure CM and CR's, Shure, Astatic and Brush crystals - don't fit shells much smaller than the traditional "JT30-size" bullets. In order to produce smaller mics, builders resort to using small, inferior elements. Their sound just doesn't measure up.
 
Bulletini is different. Bulletini uses The Heumann Elementtm. The Heumann Element is a brand new high impedance dynamic element developed specifically for harp players. It is in fact the ONLY element ever developed specifically for harp. It is made from a modern vocal mic element to which Greg makes both mechanical and electrical modifications.  It has big, fat tone with plenty of bass. Ronnie Shellist says it reminds him of a vintage Ceramic element but with more output. So far it makes every small amp it has been tested with, including Kalamazoo, Memphis Mini and the Harp Train 10 sound better than anything else I know.
 
"I think The Heumann Element is exciting. It's remarkable that there is finally a new microphone element that harmonica players can use for great tone. The Heumann Element is The Future of harp mics!" -Charlie Musselwhite - September 2015

Bulletini

I bought this mic from Ron a few weeks ago and am very happy with it. I play it through a Silvertone 1482 and it has nice fat tone. Not being a big fan of bullets (I am old, find them heavy) I was skeptical at first. Not anymore. Thanks Greg for coming up with this. I also play your Ultimate 57 and 58

after years of searching for the perfect mic (I have arthritis and struggle to hold my bullet) I found the Bulletini and couldn't live without mine...great mic

Bulletini

I received my Bulletini-VC about the first of April, and I have been able to gig with it several times, in different settings, and with different bands. All I can say is it blows me away (yes, pun intended). I've played with a 4 piece blues band, a 5 piece sort of eclectic, Americana band , and my favorite, a two man, low rent, blues band called the Fierce Invalids. In all instances the Mic was outstanding. The volume and bass response is startling. In the Invalids and the Americana band I use a Fat Dog 1A amp. It is not a loud amp. I was told several times that I was too loud with the amp set on 3. A rather novel experience. With the 4 piece band I used a Lone Wolf Blues Company LLC Harp Train 10, and after the first song the guitarist turned and said "That amp sound great tonight" and smiling, shook his head. It was the same amp, of course, it was the Bulletini that was the difference. The only problem I have with the mic is that I find I'm having to learn new mic and amp habits to get all the sounds it can give me. My go to mic for the last few years has been a biscuit mic with an old shure element, and I love it. I actually bought the Bulletini as a back up. Ha! Anyway, while I love the big, thundering bass response, I also love that good ol' Chicago, mid range honk. And I'm having to go against all my old habits to make it happen. I know, I was informed that this would be the case, it has just been a more difficult adjustment than I expected. This is NOT a complaint. It's funny though, how much resistance I have turning that old tone control halfway, or more, over to the treble side. Old habits and all that. Even with the bass turned down, or treble turned up, it still can give me that huge thick sound that is so impressive (wow, for minute there I thought I was starting to write mic porn). I also find that the size offers some new and unusual sound possibilities. To sum it up, Love the mic. It is now my go to mic. My next one will likely be one of your wood mics with the same element. Great work on this, I love it. Just for kicks I'm including a video that my partner and I made on record store day. we made it on the 4th anniversary of our first performance, for tips, in the spot in the video. the song, from our new CD, is our take on what Journey could have sounded like. It was recorded in his living room with me on drums, my main instrument and harp, and Andy on everything else. This the Fat Dog and biscuit mic, before the Bulletini. An added note: one of the great things with this mic is that different people will pull different things from it. It is definitely not a one trick pony...I guess I'm saying it makes that elusive, individual expression a little easier to capture. I had fun last night with seeing how many variations of sound I could get with just hand technique. In the Invalids I play ALL the solos. Playing a 3 or 4 hour show is tough. I don't have the vocabulary of a Kim Wilson, so every thing I can do to make one solo different from another is really helpful." Thank you Kevin!
