I'm trying to wire a lavalier mic into one of my gas can builds. The flexy metal pour spout will house the mic and (hopefully) I'll be able to sing into the spout while playing. I know...ridiculous. The plan is to wire mic and pickup to a three way switch and treat the mic loop as a pickup (does that make sense?) the problem- the mic needs to be powered.
I've got 9v bumped down with a resistor for the proper power to be supplied. I've got an 1/8 inch aux plug to plug the mic into. It has 3 posts coming out the back. I'm pretty sure I have all the correct components but I have no idea where to run the wires in between. I'm pretty sure I've been about as clear as mud in trying to explain this. At any rate, I need help.
have you considered a ghs soundhole mic.. ? I love them.. they can feedback but only if you're close to the amp.. they require a AA battery.. they are a pain on a regular acoustic because of the battery location but on a gas can... or CGB .. you should be abe to design with easy access. and yes you can sing into it.. I used to sing into the soundhole of the guitar for fun..
