Does anyone know which mic Duster Bennett used and how he attached it to his harp holder?

Not first hand knowledge, but going by an article in Melody Maker (Aug 1970), he used an AKG D109 'Throat' mic. I think he made the attachment clip himself.

Just recently, video footage has been made available (Roger Trowbridge - 'Playing the thing'), being interviewed by Chris Morphet in 1972 and live video of three tracks. You can see some good close-ups of the mic and harness.

Well worth checking out - Search Vimeo - Duster Bennett Playing the Thing.

Not sure if the below link will work:

Best wishes,
