High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1972 Shure CM Element

Fully Tested and Working


This is a chopped, milled, and powder coated bullet mic head from a classic Turner desk microphone. It’s been beheaded, and milled to shorten 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 powder white grille ring and original chrome Turner 251 grill face.


Tone-wise, this mic is hot and has great controlled distortion when cupped, and clear tone when open. This 1972 Shure CM element sound is what’s important, and it has excellent tone!


The mic features:
– Strong 1972 Shure 99A86 KG element
– Controlled Magnetic
– All new Powder Coat
– Premium Volume Control Knob
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– All new wiring
– (Cable Not Included)


Excellent cosmetic condition.


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.
