Fire Engine Red and White Powder Coat
Awesome Crunchy Tone!
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1960 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99G86 048 element
Fully Tested and Working
This is a very nice original Shure 520D 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 1960. I’ve also added a dual windscreen behind the grill featuring marine-grade stainless steel mesh and white nylon cloth.
Tone-wise, this mic has great bottom and excellent crunchy mids and highs. Better than any of the new harp mics available today.
This CM element is in wonderful cosmetic shape, but the sound is what’s important, and it howls!
The mic features:
– Strong 1960 Shure 99G86 048 element
– Integrated Volume Control
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– 1036 Ohms, Strong element
– Custom stainless steel mesh
– Powder coat with gloss topcoat
Excellent cosmetic condition, but a few nicks and scuffs on the grill, and the tone is gritty and awesome.
