Unique Wrinkled Brown Finish
Excellent Crunchy Tone!
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1963 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99B86 CE element
Fully Tested and Working
A beautiful Astatic JT-30 in good cosmetic condition, with a few scratches. It's newly rewired, with a Switchcraft cable connector, new element gasket, and a really great-sounding Controlled-magnetic element from 1963. I’ve also added a dual windscreen behind the grill featuring marine-grade stainless steel mesh and white nylon cloth.
Tone-wise, this mic is hot and crunchy, with 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 1963 Shure 99B86 CE element
– Unique Original Wrinkled Brown Paint
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– 1080 Ohms, Strong element
– Custom stainless steel mesh
Good cosmetic condition, A few significant Scratches as Pictured, 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.
