High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone

Ready for the Blues!
Fully Tested and Working

If you’ve never tried an Astatic Biscuit microphone for harp, you’ll find them smaller, lighter, and easier to cup than most any other mic out there. I really like this shape. This particular mic has fat tone, raspy even. Good lows and great distortion when cupped. It howls!

A beautiful Astatic Biscuit in great cosmetic condition. It’s newly rewired, with a Switchcraft cable connector, and a great-sounding 1956 Shure 99H86 Shite Label Controlled Reluctance element. It’s a beautiful finish. Take note, however, that the original tin tag on the top of the grill was missing. The chrome hast two dimples there.

The mic features:
– Vintage 1956 Shure Controlled Reluctance Element
– New Black Pearl powder coat
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– All new wiring
– Newly re-chromed grill (notice to rivet holes on top)
– Black grill cloth

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.
