– Vintage Original Astatic MC-151 element
– XLR Connection – Pin 3 hot
– Fully Tested and Working

This is a vintage, but brand new, Astatic JT-30VC mic. It’s out of production, and hard to find, especially in black! This mic is entirely stock, and never used except to test the element. These microphones have a great, strong, crystal element inside. The tone is hot and gritty. Breaks up nicely on the lows when cupped, Bright and crisp when open.

This microphone is all stock, and in the original packaging. The volume control is smooth, and easy to grab with the knurled knob.

The XLR connection uses a cable that is a bit hard to find. The wiring is Pin 3 hot. Most XLR instrument connections have Pin 2 hot. So you want to pick your cable carefully. I’ve found these two work well, and you’ll need to order them direct from their dealers:
