This element has nice gritty crunch. It's also in terrific cosmetic shape if that matters to you. Sometimes the elements manufactured in Mexico get a bad rap, but each and every Shure element is a little different, and this one is very, very good.
This element comes as shown, including the element wires already soldered on. Connect this element to your existing mic wires and you're off!
I've personally tested this element in a Shure Green Bullet shell and played it through a Kalamazoo Model Two, and custom Mission Chicago Harp Amp. Great tone!
