Vintage 1940’s Shure Unidyne 55C High Impedance Vocal and Harmonica Microphone #1


Up for sale is a fully-functional vintage 1940’s Shure 55C Unidyne “Fatboy” hi-impedance dynamic microphone in great working and cosmetic condition. The cosmetics are exceptional for its age, with little or no pitting on the chrome, which is pretty rare on these 70-year-old mics. And the tone! Smooth as can be, really impressive for vocals and harp.

This mic has the original Shure logo still intact (which is kind of rare.) It’s ready to use, or as pretty show pieces. The sound of these mics is really impressive. Full, rich, and smooth as silk. I was surprised at how beautiful they sound.

There is very little black paint left on the metal product label, which is extremely common. The included 20 foot cable works well, and includes a 1/4″ adapter.

This mic has a black windscreen that is in great condition, and the exterior of the mic is in very good cosmetic condition with minor scuffs and scratches and the aforementioned label missing its black paint.
