Strong, Hot, and Crunchy Tone!
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1968 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99A86 IH element
Fully Tested and Working
This is a very nice original Shure 520D shell that’s been powder-coated, newly rewired, with a new Switchcraft cable connector, premium volume control knob, new element gasket, and a really great-sounding Controlled-magnetic element from 1968. The Peavey grill has been freshly chromed with a mirror finish.
The powder coat is a Harley Davidson Pearl Black. THERE IS A FLAW IN THE FINISH. LOOK AT THE PHOTOS. Not my powder-coaters best work, but still a lovely piece.
Tone-wise, this mic is strong and hot, with great distortion when tightly cupped. Better than any of the new harp mics available today.
This Shure Controlled Magnetic element has that sought-after crunchy tone.
The mic features:
– Strong 1968 Shure 99A86 AH CM element
– Integrated Volume Control
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– 1014 Ohms, Strong element
– Black Pearl Powder coat with gloss topcoat
– Freshly Chromed Peavey Grill
Good cosmetic condition, with one dimple in the powder. Fully tested and working.
