Ok, usually I would use this element for making custom blues harmonica microphone. But finding this in such good cosmetic condition with the original box has changed my mind. It’s just too pretty to gut. Great cosmetic condition. Just a scuff on the 1/4″ input jack. The microphone switch works just as expected, and has a lively spring.

If you’re looking for great tone for your harp mic project, this 99B86 element from 1959 is an excellent choice. This cartridge works flawlessly. It’s the same element as used in Shure Green Bullet and 520 series microphones. Maybe you use the element and keep the box and housing for a conversation piece.
