A beautiful Small-shell Shure Brown Bullet freshly powder coated. Freshly chromed grill. It’s newly rewired, with a Switchcraft cable connector, new element gasket, and a really great-sounding controlled reluctance element from 1955. These small-shell Shures are easier to hold, and quite a bit lighter too.
Tone-wise, this mic is hot and crunchy. Nice fat, honky distorted voice. This CR element sound is what’s important, and it howls!
The mic has been tested on a Mission Chicago 30 watt amp, and on a lovely little Kalamazoo Model Two amp. It performs great on both.
