Pearl Red Turner 251/Realistic Bullet Mic, 1963 Shure Controlled Magnetic


Custom Turner 251/Realistic Bullet Mic
Vintage 1963 Controlled Magnetic

Red Pearl Powder Coat
Strong! Hot. Loud!
High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 19673 Shure Controlled Magnetic 99H86 Element
Fully Tested and Working

The powder coat is a bright, sparkling Pearl Red color. Look carefully on the bottom though, there are some flaws in the powder coat, kind of like a half moon mark.

Chopped, milled, and powder coated, this bullet mic is built from a classic Realistic desk microphone. This makes the mic a nice small diameter, easy-to-hold, and light.

I’ve added a Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector. This shell weighs 10 ounces, and has a nice white powder coat grille ring. The chrome grill face features a vintage Turner model 251 tag.

Great looking, and great sounding. Full, rich, and raspy distortion!

The mic features:
– Strong 1963 Shure 99H86 element
– Controlled Magnetic
– All new Powder Coat
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– All new wiring

Excellent cosmetic condition. Several dimples and bubbles in the powder coat. Look at the photos closely.

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.
