I saw on some of the harp mic`s there`s volume pots and toggle switches. Whats the avantage or disavantage of using them. I`m thinking of trying a volume pot on my second harp mic that i`m making now. Whats the best location to put it....in the middle of the housing or at the end? as with the input jack, in the middle or at the end?

Well i added a volume pot to my second harp mic that i`m making now. What i did was make a rosewood componet housing on the bottom of the body of the mic. In it is the pot and the input jack, worked out great !
