Fully Tested and Working

I love this way cool, great-sounding harp mic. The 99B86 element has a hot, crunchy tone, very strong with excellent breakup. It’s ready to gig. The shell is from the mid 1940s, and is very good shape, but expect some imperfections in the coat, especially in the deep groove of the neck. The grill is backed with marine-grade stainless-steel grid and white polyester cloth.

This mic features:
– Vintage 1979 Shure 99B86 CM Element
– New Element Gasket
– Fresh Black Gloss Powder Coat
– Fat and Crunchy Tone. Very Hot.
– 5/8″ Screw-on Connector
– Fully Rewired

This is a vintage mic, with custom paint in quite good condition. There are some scuffs and scratches, but the tone is gritty and awesome.
