Custom Turner/Johns0n 254 Bullet Mic
Vintage Black Label Controlled Reluctance
Black Cherry Powder Coat by Jeffrey Spoor
Sloppy, Loud Tone! Hot.
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1954 Shure Controlled Reluctance Element
Fully Tested and Working
The photos don’t do this mic justice. The powder coat is a warm, sparkling Black Cherry color custom cooked by Jeffrey Spoor.
Chopped, milled, and powder coated, this bullet mic is built from a classic Johnson desk microphone. I’ve shortened the center mohawk rib on the top. This makes the mic a nice small diameter, easy-to-hold, and light.
I’ve added a Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector and a volume control for on-stage flexibility. This shell weighs 10 ounces, and has a nice gloss chrome grille ring. The grill face features a dimensional metal Johnson medallion. Pretty rare look.
Nice hot, excellent tone!
The mic features:
– Strong 1954 Shure 99B86 405 element
– Controlled Reluctance
– All new Powder Coat
– Premium, Solid Aluminum Volume Control Knob
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– All new wiring
– (Cable Not Included)
Excellent cosmetic condition. Couple dimples in the powder coat, and a tiny rust spot on the front grille. Look at the photos closely.
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.
