Up for sale is a fully-functional vintage 1940’s Shure 55B Unidyne “Fatboy” Low-impedance (200 Ohms) dynamic microphone in great working and cosmetic condition. The cosmetics are exceptional for its age, with little or no pitting on the chrome, which is pretty rare on these 70-year-old mics. And the tone! Smooth as can be, really impressive for vocals and harp.
This mic has the original Shure logo still intact (which is kind of rare.) It’s ready to use, or as pretty show pieces. The sound of these mics is really impressive. Full, rich, and smooth as silk. I was surprised at how beautiful they sound. The original Shure S-36 table base is really clean, with no obvious scratches or dents. The blue/black Shure logo is fully intact. The Unidyne microphone model label is near mint. Looks great.
The included 2 foot cable works well, and is the Amphenol 3 pin to 2-pin model. You’ll want an adapter if you plan on plugging into an amp, and there are adapters around, but not included in this offering.
This mic has a black windscreen that is in great condition, and the exterior of the mic is in very good cosmetic condition with minor scuffs and scratches.
