Omnidirectional Dynamic Microphone

Legendary among harmonica players for its classic blues harp sound, the 520D’s tradition is carried on by the 520DX “Green Bullet” and has a contoured size and shape that fits perfectly between harmonica and hands.

  • New volume control knob allows musicians to adjust the volume to fit each musical situation
  • New rugged, dynamic cartridge with improved response
  • High-impedance, omnidirectional
  • Supplied with 1/4 inch connector

Shure states the frequency response as 100 to 5,000 Hz, but the -3dB points are closer to 500Hz and 4000Hz.

The Shure 520DX is also known as: Green Bullet.
