Great Blues Tone, 1940's High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Nice Original Astatic Model 200
Brown shell, Gold Grill
Great Super-Hot JT80 Crystal Element
Crunchy Distortion, quite nice for Blues Harp
Fully Tested and Working
This is an all-original Astatic 200 microphone, originally built for public address systems. It's working very well, and has an attached 8 foot cable. It's high impedance, and loud as hell.
This element is quite rare to find in working condition. Amazing tone, with a nice fat bottom, and screaming highs. You might consider buying this mic for the element alone!
Cosmetically, it's in good shape considering it's age. Some scuffs, nicks and dirt. The grill is in excellent condition, and the dark brown shell paint is not significantly worn.
The microphone has been fully tested on a Skip Simmons modified Masco MA-17 P.A. amp head driving a twin-ten cabinet with Lil' Buddy speakers. Sounds excellent. Ready for the stage.
