High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 19645 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99B86 EE element
Fully Tested and Working
This is an excellent, original green Shure 520 with original tag, It has been rewired, with a Switchcraft screw-on cable connector, original element gasket with tightening ring, and a great-sounding Controlled-Magnetic element from1965.
The cosmetics of this microphone are really, really good. The Grill is beautiful brushed chrome with only the most minor imperfections. The original shure Green Bullet pain finish is in very good condition, with some small scratches, but no flaking or dents. The original 520 tag from Evanston is in excellent condition.
Tone-wise, this mic is bright, and crunchy, as you’d expect from a mid-60s 99B86 element. Better than any of the new harp mics available today.
The mic features:
– Strong 1965 Shure 99B86 EE element
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– Excellent cosmetics
– Custom stainless steel mesh
– Powder coat with gloss topcoat
