– 1960’s High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
– Lousy Paint, Great Element
– Astatic MC-126 Ceramic Element
– Fully Tested and Working
Here’s a stock Vintage Astatic Model JT30-C harp mic, with an original, vintage Astatic MC-126 ceramic element. The connector is a Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on model. The paint is lousy. However the mic is 50 years old or so. The Grill is pitted, but not too bad.
This element is full-strength, with good tone.
Cosmetic condition includes lots of scuffs and scratches to the original grey shell coat.
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.
