Great Tone, Excellent Vintage Element
1964 Low-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1964 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99C86 DJ element
Fully Tested and Working
Here’s an excellent choice if you’re looking for a harp mic that hooks straight into the PA system. This low-impedance mic doesn’t lack in tone though. Great crunch and distortion when cupped. I believe the shell has been repainted, but the finish is clean and solid. The grill has a bit of pitting, but still shines. Lots of Mojo from 50 years of use.
This element is strong, with a nice crunchy distortion throughout, and excellent Bass tone. A great version of the Shure 520 and 540 series mics.
The mic features:
– Strong 1964 Shure 99C86 QE element
– 15.6 Ohms
– Female XLR connector
Rough cosmetic condition, with scuffs and scratches to the original hammertone shell coat.
