cheers johnny, the mics one of me grandads old pipe baccy tins (his pipe used to stink the house out so thought it'd do something for my vocals) with the mouthpiece piezo from an old corded telephone (beige and 50p from car boot) wired to a jack and put thru a little pignose amp with distortion on. gives a great lo fi sound and harp sounds cool thru it too.

Johnny! Hey chief, Welcome to the Tarheel group (late but not missed). I suppose being in Raleigh you're more apt to bleed NCSU red than UNC blue, but we all bleed NC -- so.
