Ugly? Shure 520 Bullet Harp Mic, 1974 Shure CM


Ugly Finish, Nice Grill,
Awesome Tone!

High-Impedance Harmonica Microphone
Vintage 1974 Shure Controlled Magnetic
99B86 NK element
Fully Tested and Working

Is it beautiful or ugly? A been-through-the-ringer Shure 520 in rough cosmetic condition. Grungy, chipped, scratched, slightly pitted brushed-chrome grill. However inside it’s newly rewired, with new element gasket, and a great-sounding Controlled-magnetic element from 1974.

This 99B86 element is dirty-sounding and quite hot, as the B models tend to be. So if sound is what’s important to you, and cosmetics don’t matter, this mic howls!

The mic features:
– Strong 1974 Shure 99B86 NK element
– Original Green and grime finish
– Switchcraft 5/8” screw-on connector
– 1017 Ohms, Strong element
– Excellent grill and original mesh
– Original Green Shure Riveted Tin Tag

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.
