DIY Bottle 'O Blues Harmonica Microphone

Postby ed » Sun Dec 20, 2009 10:01 am

For about $12 and a few things from around the house you can make a Bottle 'O Blues harmonica mic in less then 2 hours. This is going to be part of a Christmas gift for one of my brothers.

Wow ED, I'm not sure I understand how that thing works but I'm glad you didn't slip with the first drill hole! :-)

He's good Charles. My brother has been playing since we were kids, and he's good too. I can just do some Dylan type stuff.

Thanks Brian, I still have most of my fingers :lol:. I haven't had a chance to view your latest post on Vimeo, but plan to do so later this afternoon. I really like the last performance you posted.

Oh, that was just to see what a few seconds of slow motion from an AVCHD camcorder looked like. Slow. Ha! :-)
