The Copperphone Mini was originally designed for harmonica players as a hand held alternative to the Copperphone. It does have a similar nostalgic character to the sound because it operates within a limited bandwidth. However the Copperphone Mini uses a higher performance modern element and does not utilize a resonant chamber. The result is a microphone that is more sensitive and sounds more direct and bright than the Copperphone.
The initial design did not have the ring mount because it was intended to be used as a hand held microphone for harmonica players. However after the first prototype was made we decided to add the ring mount for people who wanted more versatility and to be able to use the mic in more conventional ways.
The rugged aircraft aluminum ring mount can be attached to any standard North American mic stand (5/8 inch). If you have a European style mic stand (3/8 inch), the Copperphone Mini can be attached with a threaded adapter insert. This type of insert is not provided with the Copperphone Mini but can be easily obtained at your local music store for a nominal cost.
If you decide to use the ring mounting system with a microphone stand, another adapter is recommended to give the user full range of adjustability. We suggest the Audio Technica AT8459.
With the use of a small kit provided, the Copperphone Mini can easily be removed from the ring mount and adapted for its original use as a hand held harmonica microphone.
Placid mics are used by a veritable who's who of the audio world including; The Black Keys, Jack White, John Lydon, Snoop Dogg, Dave Rat, Johnny Marr, Alan Moulder, Adrian Utley, Bob Rock.....
