Unique Greenish-Grey Finish
Excellent Crunchy Tone!
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1963 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99H86 CE element
Fully Tested and Working
A beautiful Astatic JT-30 in good cosmetic condition, with a few scratches. It’s newly rewired, with a Switchcraft cable connector, new element gasket, and a really great-sounding Controlled-magnetic element from 1963. I’ve also added a dual windscreen behind the grill featuring marine-grade stainless steel mesh and white nylon cloth.
Tone-wise, this mic is hot and crunchy. Better than any of the new harp mics available today.
This CM element sound is what’s important, and it howls!
The mic features:
– Strong 1963 Shure 99H86 CE element
– Unique Original Greenish-Grey Paint
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– 1085 Ohms, Strong element
– Custom stainless steel mesh
Good cosmetic condition, One significant Scratch as Pictured, but a few nicks and scuffs on the grill, and the tone is gritty and awesome.
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.
