On my vacation, I went to see Mr. Gollihur's house in south Jersey. When I arrived, shortly after noon, Mr. Gollihur was sober. His living room is enhanced by a Juzek in the corner, safely away from the fireplace. Furnishings included an AI Contra, and an EA cabinet with some stuff on top that I don't understand at all. He proceeded to connect the new K & K Golden Trinity mic to my bass. It took only a second. I asked if the name meant Jerry Falwell had designed it, and Mr. Gollihur looked a little uneasy and said he had helped design the mic but not the name. Aware of my two-wire maximum, Mr. Gollihur showed how both the mic and my Barbera pickup went through one wire to a little black box about 1/20th the size of a stupid Fishman Blender. The box lets you separately and infinitely mix the amount of mic and pickup signal sent to the amp. You can leave the box on the floor, but Mr. Gollihur showed how it fit on his belt. There was plenty of room left for Mr. Gollihur to wear a shoulder holster. The all-mic sound through the AI was warmer than a pickup could ever be, and loud enough to do most jazz gigs alone. Mixing in the pickup added bite, but the AI Contra doesn't give that twangy sound no matter what. I got real nervous when Mr. Gollihur took out a little screwdriver, but it was only to open up the box. He mumbled something about "EQ" and "neutral" and was done in one minute. After I get my AI Contra, I'm highly likely to get this mic. I didn't see any other basses or guns in Mr. Gollihur's house, only some EUB's that Mr. Gollihur is making himself. He's a real smart man. I pretended to use the bathroom to see if his shoulder holster was on the back of the door. It wasn't. I went home.
