Clean Original Gray Finish
Excellent Crunchy Tone!
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1960 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99H86 AG element
Fully Tested and Working
A beautiful Astatic JT-30 in excellent cosmetic condition, with a few small scratches. It's newly rewired, with a Switchcraft cable connector, new element gasket, and a really great-sounding Controlled-magnetic element from 1960. I’ve also added a dual windscreen behind the grill featuring marine-grade stainless steel mesh and black nylon cloth.
Tone-wise, this mic is crisp with good lows and great distortion. Better than any of the new harp mics available today.
This CM element sound is what’s important, and it howls!
The mic features:
– Strong 1960 Shure 99H86 AG element
– Original Glossy Grey Marbled Paint
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– 1098 Ohms, Strong element
– Custom stainless steel mesh
Good cosmetic condition and a few nicks and scuffs on the grill.
The mic has been tested on a Mission Chicago 30 watt amp, and on a lovely little Kalamazoo Model Two amp. It performs great on both.
