Distortion microphone

Introducing the DirtMic-01, a new approach to overdriving and distorting sound in the studio. It’s the ultimate character microphone, but instead of the usual lo-fi or vintage sound, DrAlienSmith have created a monster by installing a distortion pedal circuit into an existing microphone, the Superlux D112.

A modern and practical distortion

The circuit has been designed to run off 48v phantom power and it's transformer balanced so it works by plugging the microphone straight into any mixer or interface via the XLR connector. Its a simple solution with no need for batteries, extra pedals, DI boxes or guitar amps.The DirtMic-01 proudly distorts and contorts everything you point it at. The amount of gain is controlled by the ‘pre-gain’ volume pot on the mic itself. Turn the gain right up to capture unique, dirty flavors from any source or try lower gain settings for a more subtle sound.

Designed for the studio, and also useful live

This mic has been designed to be a recording microphone but there has been a lot of interest in using it for live performance. Due to the nature of live distortion we don't guarantee that it will work without feedback but if you have a smart sound person, a quiet stage and you keep the gain low on the mic, then you have a chance of success.

Tips for Harmonica Players

This mic is not meant to be plugged into an amp like a traditional harmonica mic, it is meant to be used INSTEAD of an amp and plugged direct into a mixing desk or preamp. If you must plug it into an amp then you will need an external phantom power supply like a Behringer PS400 for it to work.

The DirtMic-01 comes standard with a DirtMount mic stand clip and a manual.
