Full Custom, Great Tone, Controlled Reluctance Element
Astatic JT-30 Harmonica Microphone
1954 Shure 99G86 420 element
Fully Tested and Working
This is a freshly powder coated Astatic JT-30 microphone. It has been completely rewired, and includes a new custom element gasket. It has an integrated volume control with an black aluminum grooved knob. The connector is a Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on model.
The exterior finish is Harley Davidson small-flake black powder coat. The condition is excellent. Behind the chrome grill is custom marine grade stainless steel mesh, and black polyester cloth, giving the face a mean classic look.
Everyone has a personal taste about how a microphone sounds. This element is a 1954 Shure 99G86 Controlled Reluctance model. They are widely sought-after for thier great tone. To my ears, this element is awesome. It’s very dirty when cupped tightly, but crisp and clear when open.
The microphone has been fully tested on a Mission Chicago 32-20 amp driving a twin-ten cabinet with Lil’ Buddy speakers. Sounds excellent. Ready for the stage.
