Circa 1935 Astatic Model 30, Youngstown, Ohio, Y-series #72774
Original Brown Bullet finish
Volume Control
Tremendous Blues Harp Tone!
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1969 Shure Controlled Magnetic Element
Fully Tested and Working

A 85 year-old Astatic Model 30 in reasonably good cosmetic condition. Chipped and scratched original paint, but beautiful anyhow. This is a pretty hard-to-find Youngstown Y-series shell, before Astatic moved to Conneaut Ohio, meaning it was produced around 1935.

This element is fantastic. Loud, really strong, with great distortion when cupped. It was kind of shocking how good this element sounded when I cranked up my amps and played this mic. An awesome CM element vintage ballsy sound. It howls!

Inside it’s newly rewired, with new element gasket, volume control, premium VC knob, and a great-sounding Controlled-magnetic element from 1969.

The mic features:
– Strong 1969 Shure 99A86 Element
– Original Paint and Astatic stamped model tag
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– Custom stainless steel grill mesh

The mic has been fully tested and is ready for the stage. Pay careful attention to the photographs to see all the beauty marks, scratches, and lost paint.
