Dirty Stained Blues Exterior Finish
Great tonal distortion and Honk
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1969 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99A86 IH element
Fully Tested and Working
A JT-30 in cool, dirty cosmetic condition, and a super-hot Shure element. It's newly rewired, with a Switchcraft 5/8” cable connector, new element gasket, and a really strong Controlled-magnetic element from 1969. It reads out at 1025 Ohms! I’ve also added a dual windscreen behind the grill featuring marine-grade stainless steel mesh and black nylon cloth.
Tone-wise, this mic has great distortion when cupped, and serious honk in the mid tones. Better than any of the new harp mics available today. This CM element sound is what’s great about this mic!
The exterior finish is poor, or great depending on your opinion. The grey paint has stains in various places, but the finish is smooth. The grill is very good with only two small corrosion spots. This mic has been around.
The mic features:
– Strong 1993 Shure 99A86 IH element
– Dirty Hammertone Grey Paint
– New wiring
– New Volume Control with black knob
– Good Chrome Grill
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– 1025 Ohms, Strong, Gritty element
– Custom stainless steel mesh
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.
