1945 Astatic JT-30 Bullet Harp Mic, Original Crystal Works


Astatic Model JT-30 B Series Brown Bullet
1945 from Youngstown OH
Excellent Crunchy Tone!
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Original Working 1945 Brush Crystal Element, Strong Output!
Fully Tested and Working

A beautiful Astatic JT-30 in good all-original condition. These original crystal elements are really hard to find, and this one works very well, especially considering it’s 70 years old.

This mic head also comes with the original Astatic C-2644 wood neck and metal base stand. You can play the mic on stage, and then display it at home on this stand. The mic and stand have been together for 70+ years, so they shouldn’t be apart for very long.

The mic features:
– Strong 1945 Brush Crystal element
– All original paint in good shape
– Original Astatic Youngstown Ohio Badge
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– Excellent tone
– All original new wiring

Good cosmetic condition, but a few nicks and scuffs on the grill, one longer scratch on one side. Look closely at the photographs

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.
