Distinctive Grey on Grey Shell. Excellent Element.
1960’s High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1977 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99A86 QL element
Fully Tested and Working
Here’s a stock All-Hammertone Astatic JT30 harp mic, with an excellent, strong CM element from 1977. I’ve also added a dual windscreen behind the grill featuring marine-grade stainless steel mesh and white nylon cloth. The paint is kind of rough. Lots of Mojo from 50 years of use. The Grey on grey paint job is reasonably rare.
This element is strong, with a nice crunchy distortion throughout, and excellent Bass tone. Better than any of the new harp mics available today.
The mic features:
– Strong 1977 Shure 99A86 QL element
– 1030 Ohms
– Custom stainless steel mesh
Rough cosmetic condition, with scuffs and scratches to the original hammertone shell coat.
