I'm considering adding an FSS GRISTLEIZER pre amp module in my rack and I'm looking for a mic that would pair well with it.

Any recommandations?

How about a Copperphone?

not sure it's important but yeah, that's about the only thing that came to mind, aside from old CB radio mics, which work very well since you need to hold down the button to talk, so feedback is manageable. You're gonna lose the sound characteristics of the mic anyway, so just get a $12 SM57 clone, they are great.

I do like old cb radio mics but they lack of a jack output.
Any idea where I could fine one ?

I have the Shure 414a it has an XLR. It's great! No idea how hard they are to find.

edit: Looks like the 414a is the Hi-Z and the 414b is the Lo-Z version.

Many times old portable reel to reel recorders came will small microphones that can be used as "crap" mics. I pick them up at thrift stores on occasion for a few bucks. Often they have an obsolete type of plug on the end, but will usually work if you change it over to a 1/4 plug. Here are a few recent additions to my collection. I have not tested them yet. Left is AIWA DM-54 and right side is Sony F-25.

Speakers can be used as dynamic mics.

Old school telephone carbon granule type are good - needs a DC phantom power but that's just a battery, a resistor and a DC blocking cap.

Old dynamic mics I've found are usually too far gone with rotted diaphragms.

Those cheap plastic bodied mics that come with toy karaoke machines are often basic dynamic mic's with that bad public address sound.

Done and done, he can even provide with the CB mic

It is awesome, yes you need one SlayerBadger!

Crank Sturgeon makes some cheap lo-fi mics that connect using a jack. I own a Crank & Barrel microphone which I think was $30 when I got it.

I’ve also used my Dean Markley DM-3000 piezo pickup connected to the inside of a small glass yoghurt jar.

Funny. I just scored a Shure 577B to use through a Pyle PA amp and an old drive in speaker. This will be my noise vocal set-up. Add various pedals to taste.

I just scored a Copperphone tonight. I hope to have it soon.

For loud action just use one of these. Pure feedback fun and can sample quiet things: Amplified Listener.

Love my JMT Noisy Mic. It's a mic, it's noisy!

You can also use a cheap pair of headphones as a lo-fi microphone.

Came here to say this! Depending on impedance it can be a challenge to get the input loud enough, but it definitely will not be clean ...

I say get anything. sm57 sm58. I wouldn't want to have a mic that is severely colored or band limited or distorted. you can do all that down the line with too much gain or adding EQ in the mixer. I never had any problems sounding lame through a sm58. I never needed a switch either. I do it all by covering the mic with my hands or in my arm pit to stop the feedback or to make slow changing envelopes. one time I used gloves on the top of the mic to low pass filter all the feedback.

I have the JMT Noisy Microphone. I bought mine used, IMO it's a bit overpriced when buying new. I do like mine, it's simpler than trying to figure out how to add a distortion pedal to your signal chain. Vocals are barely intelligible though, so if it's important that the lyrics or words are easy to understand, then I would look elsewhere.

Mine also has a slight 'thump' when it's activated, which can be worked around by simply singing or talking a split second before engaging the mic. If there's audio to transmit when the mic is engaged, the thump is not audible.

I also have had good results running cheap mics (Radio Shack etc) into a Rat, but it takes some fussing around to get the settings right, so that it's not constantly feeding back uncontrollably.
