The incredible Twin Tone mic... upgraded to a highly coveted black label CR element. (availability varies) These elements were produced only in the late 1940's/early 1950's, unmolested examples are becoming quite scarce. The good news is that they were exceptionally well made, an all original correctly functioning example is likely to provide many years of trouble free service. Some CR's definitely sound better than others, only the best make the cut for a Twin Tone! Along with the Shure R7 crystal, the CR is widely regarded as THE Holy Grail of harp mic elements.

The high international shipping cost for this world class microphone is due to the default setting for insured Priority Mail with tracking, I'm not profiting from it. I can mail it for much less upon your written request, but the risk of loss or damage would then be 100% on you.

High Impedance (hi-z), just what you need to plug direct into a harp or guitar amp. Built-in cable and volume control for an all-in-one solution. There is of course a 1/4" male "guitar" jack attached to the end of the cable, it's ready to Plug & Play.

You are buying ONE "Red Howler Pro Harmonica Microphone" BRAND NEW in the original box with all packaging and instruction folder just as it left the factory.

Some minor scuffing on the boxes from storage but all the mic's are pristine, no cosmetic blemishes, all are identical. Never used other than to check that they work correctly. The generous 19.5 foot (6 meter) cable on this batch is much more usable than the ones with the short 10 foot (3 meter) cables being sold by others. Possibly a production error, 10 feet is nowhere near long enough for typical stage use. I didn't measure all six in my inventory, there might (or might not) be minor variations in cable length, but none of these are the short ones.

Musicians Friend and Guitar Center sold these for $99 but now show them as unavailable. I'm selling them here on Harmonica Planet for $88... with free shipping within the US. International purchasers pay only the actual USPS shipping rate, plus any customs/import fees charged by your country.

I've sold several and all comments have been positive, but... "tone" is highly subjective. Returns accepted ONLY if this item does not function per factory parameters upon delivery.

THE screw fitting cable to have when performance, shielding, looks and durability are important to you!

Choice of Canare or Mogami wire. I try to keep at least one 20' Canare cable ready to ship in each color but demand occasionally exceeds production capacity, contact before buying if your order is time sensitive. Sometimes a short delay for other lengths or for Mogami wire.

For an additional $5 you can have the cable personalized with your name + phone number. (please contact me prior to ordering) ... Due to hand fabrication cable length can vary +/- 3". (1 inch is typical)

Usually a short delay for other length cables (can build to any length, ask for pricing). If I'm on the road I might not be able to mail anything until I return, but often carry a small inventory with me.

Hand built in the US by my friend Greg Heumann. I liked the quality of these so much that I became a distributor... win/win, saves me the bench time of producing something similar.

I've tried all the others, none in my opinion (aside from the discontinued Switchcraft 329) are nearly as well engineered as these. Full one year warranty from the manufacturer.

Ships via uninsured USPS First Class at your risk (never any issues in over a decade). Please contact before buying if you desire an insured service at additional expense.

I have a dwindling stash of these. Typical brush chrome example is shown, some have different knurling on the ring, some have smooth chrome (different production runs). All are in excellent cosmetic condition and work just like they did when they were made around 50(?) years ago. More info in my free Harp Mic Buyers Guide.

If you are buying more than one item and wish to contact me before paying I will manually calculate a lower combined shipping rate.  If you are buying a second item that carries a discount, the calculator here does not automatically take the deduction,  even if you have selected it in the options drop down box.  Just let me know before paying and I can send a revised total.

Most US shipments sent by USPS Priority Mail.   Insurance for up to $50 is included, additional insurance may be purchased at additional cost*


Small items such as Inline Volume Controls and adapters are sent via USPS 1st Class.

All shipments outside the US are sent by USPS First Class International unless you request the much more expensive Prioriry Mail Service.  You must contact me BEFORE

I might suprize you with a lower rate!  I also accept Visa, MasterCard, USPS money orders, and cashier's checks drawn on US banks.  Contact first if using anything other than Paypal*  All check types must irrevocably clear before items are shipped, this can lead to significant delays.
