Here’s a stock Vintage Astatic Model 30 Brown Bullet harp mic, with an excellent, strong Brush Crystal element from 1942. I’ve rewired the mic and added a Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector. The paint is really good considering the mic is 74 years old. Lots of Mojo. The Grill and original grill cloth are in excellent condition.

This crystal element is strong, with a nice crunchy distortion throughout, and excellent Bass tone. You likely know that these elements are exceptionally rare in working condition. I don’t want to ship it for fear of it damaging the crystal, so this auction is:


Cosmetic condition includes some scuffs and scratches to the original brown shell coat.
