Full Custom Turner 454X Bullet Mic
– Super Hot
– High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
– Vintage 1956 White Label Shure Controlled Reluctance
– 99H86 Element
– Fully Tested and Working
A chopped, milled, and Root-Beer pearl 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 brushed 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.
This controlled reluctance element is just great. It's got throaty controlled bass distortion when cupped, and clear, crisp tone when open. This CR element sound is what’s important, and it has excellent sound!
The mic features:
– Strong 1956 Shure 99H86 element
– All new Powder Coat
– Premium Volume Control Knob
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– 1074 Ohms, Strong element
– All new wiring
Good cosmetic condition, but a few imperfections in the Powder Coat and along the top of the fin. Look at all the photographs please.
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.
