Custom Turner 254 Bullet Mic, Vintage 1958 Shure Element.


Full Custom Turner 254 Bullet Mic
Hot and Very Gritty
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1958 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99A86 Element
Fully Tested and Working

A chopped, milled, and baby-blue powder coated bullet mic head from a classic Turner desk microphone. It’s been beheaded, and milled to reduce the center mohawk rib on the top. This makes the mic a nice small diameter, easy-to-hold, and stage-ready.

I’ve added a Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector and volume control for on-stage flexibility. This shell is light, and has a nice chrome grille case and Turner badge. Additionally it has a vintage slotted volume control knob for good looks. The element is set in a new custom gasket.

Tone-wise, this mic is Hot and very gritty. It’s got great controlled bass distortion when cupped, and clear, crisp tone when open. This CM element sound is what’s important, and it has excellent sound!

The mic features:
– Strong 1958 Shure 99A86 element
– All new Powder Coat
– Premium Volume Control Knob
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– 1045 Ohms, Strong element
– All new wiring

Good cosmetic condition, but a few imperfections in the Powder Coat. Look at all the photographs please.

The microphone has been fully tested on a Skip Simmons modified Masco MA-17 P.A. amp head driving a twin-ten cabinet with Lil’ Buddy speakers. Sounds excellent. Ready for the stage.
