Hi Peter,

It's a cheapie!  Olympus compact gun microphone - ME 31.  Not sure how cheap - 
it was a gift.  I will be upgrading to either the Senheisser ME67 or ME 66 one 
of these days.....  

However this thing does the job and I don't feel I need to be too protective of 
it when I am out and about.
