This is a very nice original Shure 520 green bullet that’s been powder-coated, newly rewired, with a new Switchcraft cable connector, premium volume control knob, new element gasket, and a really great-sounding vintage Shure Controlled-Magnetic element from 1959. The grill is original brushed chrome.

Tone-wise, this mic is strong and hot, with great distortion when tightly cupped. This early ’59 Shure Controlled Magnetic element has that sought-after crunchy tone.

The mic features:
– Strong 1959 Shure 99H86 element
– Integrated Volume Control
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– 1185 Ohms, Strong high-impedance element
– Honey Pearl Powder coat with gloss topcoat
– Vintage Brushed Chrome Grill
– Includes Switchcraft 332A screw-on to guitar cable adapter

Great cosmetic condition, Ballsy tone. Look carefully at the photos. Grill has some minor imperfections.
