Fantastic Original Gray Finish
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1961 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99G86 104 element
Fully Tested and Working
A beautiful Astatic JT-30 in excellent cosmetic condition. It’s newly rewired, with a Switchcraft cable connector, new element gasket, and a great-sounding Controlled-magnetic element from 1961. 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 dirty throughout the range and has 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 1961 Shure 99H86 104 element
– Original Glossy Grey Marbled Paint
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– 1072 Ohms, Strong element
– Custom stainless steel mesh
– JT-30 B-series #608753
Mint condition, flawless 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.
