Black Powder Coat, Original Chrome Grill
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1961 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99H86 119 element
Fully Tested and Working
I’ve taken a 1940’s Astatic Model 200, chopped and custom-machined it, and added a Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector and a smooth Vishay Volume Control. The entire mic is newly rewired, with a new element gasket. The vintage Shure CM element hails from from 1961. I’ve also added a windscreen behind the grill featuring marine-grade stainless steel mesh and white nylon cloth.
These Astatic 200’s are very light and easy to cup. This one has good, hot tone. The volume control lets you dial it right to the edge of feedback for that wonderful overdriven harp sound. And it’s cool looking too.
Better than any of the new harp mics available today. Ready to gig!
The mic features:
– Strong 1961 Shure 99H86 119 element
– OriginalChrome Grill and screws
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– Vishay premium volume control
– 1025 Ohms
– Custom stainless steel mesh
– Fresh Black Powder coat
Excellent cosmetic condition.
