    Hey all

    Does anyone know what Miles used, and how he attached it, (in terms of tranducers) on his mouthpiece to make those funky sounds?

    In the seventies. In the eighties it was a portable wireless mic setup, I don't know the brand. George Cole would probably know.

    SD Systems is the brand of Mic Miles used I beleive. It is a long clip on mic that allows mutes to be used.
