99H86 844 element
Fully Tested and Working

Here we have a beautiful Astatic 200 that’s been chopped, and custom-machined, adding a Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector. Newly rewired, with a new element gasket, and a really great-sounding CM element from 1958. I’ve also added a windscreen behind the grill featuring marine-grade stainless steel mesh and white nylon cloth.

These Astatic 200’s are very light and easy to cup. This one is especially good tone with great contrast between cupped and non-cupped positions. And it’s cool looking too.

Tone-wise, this mic has great low notes and light breakup overall. Better than any of the new harp mics available today. Ready to gig!

The mic features:
– Strong 1958 Shure 99H86 844 element
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– 1061 Ohms
– Custom stainless steel mesh
– Two-tone Powder coat

Flawless cosmetic condition.
