Fully Tested and Working

This is a chopped, milled, and powder coated bullet mic head from a classic Regency/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 brushed chrome grille ring and original black Regency grill face.

Tone-wise, this mic is hot and has great controlled distortion when cupped, and clear tone when open. This 1974 Shure CM element sound is what’s important, and it has excellent tone!

The mic features:
– Strong 1974 Shure 99B86 NK element
– Controlled Magnetic
– All new Powder Coat
– Premium Volume Control Knob
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– All new wiring

Excellent cosmetic condition. Some scratches and scuffs on the brushed chrome grill ring, look at the photos carefully.

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.
