What do most use for the mic housing, i`ve seen everything from phones, wood and cans. I use bone only because i have an unlimited amount and it`s already hollowed out. Plus it makes a killer lookin harp mic...lol. Anyone have any other ideas please post them...as i`m just learning about these cool mic`s, any and all info  is great !

Mojobone Works....bone harp mic - housing

been saving these old bicycle lights, thought they would make some cool mic's

Those are awesome. I need to poke around the local bike shops and see if they ever throw any away.

They really remind me of the old bullet harp mics...

I used an old CB radio mic
