This may be a case where the stand is a bit more special than the microphone. Although very old, the 700D microphone can be found on eBay fairly regularly. The stand, on the other hand, is special indeed. It appears in only a couple of issues if the Shure catalog beginning in the late 30s. You can see a row of them here on the 1937 issue. The Shure decal is in astonishing shape for its age. And that early Shure logo is just…well, it’s #artdeco perfection to my eye. Great colors, great fonts. It’s. Just. Beautiful. #vintagemicrophone #shure #vintageshure #microphonecollection #midcentury #microphone #recordingstudio #studio #voiceover

Life Goal Status: Achieved. Thanks, @shure !

@bluemicrophones Yeti. THE podcasting mic. This is also the go-to mic for voiceover professionals when they travel. Need to submit an audition from your hotel room? With a Yeti in your suitcase, you’re good to go. There’s a reason this one is the industry standard. #podcast #microphone #studio #recording #recordingstudio #voiceover

@audixmics SCX-one. Great little cardioid condenser. #microphone #studiomicrophone #recordingstudio #studio #recording

@beyerdynamic.northamerica M58 N(C). I love collecting microphones for the endless variety of form and function. This is a modern interview mic from Germany. The build quality is amazing, with a precision I haven’t seen in very many other mics. Really, really good. It’s shock mounted, so it’s a direct competitor to the Electro Voice RE 50. Is it worth the extra money? Probably. #microphonecollection #microphone #recording #recordingstudio #beyerdynamic

Sweet little @shure CR-81. The controlled reluctance capsule is perfectly gritty, dirty and lo-fi. I’ve used it as an FX mic when I want to put a character on the phone or on a 2 way radio. #vintagemicrophone #vintage #microphone #50s #60s #midcentury #recording studio

A lineup of #vintage @shure 55 microphones. From a very early 55C to a couple of blue silk 55S models and a #70s version of a 55SW. On vintage stands. #midcentury #shure55 #vintagemicrophone #microphonecollection #40s #50s #60s #microphonecollection #recordingstudio

AKG D330 BT. Top-of-the-line dynamic from the #70s AKG catalog. It’s got some really unique features, like built in EQ for both bass and treble. I tested it in all settings, and it’s got an impressive range. In fact, I’d say that on vocals it can rival a nice condenser. Really a Swiss army mic. Very versatile and well-made. There’s a reason German mics have the reputation they do. #vintagemicrophone #microphonecollection #vintage #midcentury #recordingstudio #recording

I just realized these two are brothers. They have the exact same paint combination. Same body color, same grille color. They are both #60s vintage from Japan. Must have come from the same factory, probably same year. Cool! #vintagemicrophone #vintage #midcentury #microphonecollection #microphone #recordingstudio

Seriously cool design from the #60s. Japanese manufacturers built the microphones, and different companies bought and marketed them under their own names. So you’ll see this model with different brand names, but they’re all the same under the hood. Which means that they all sound equally bad! It incorporates a cheap dynamic element with a small transformer and is omnidirectional. This example has survived its 50-plus year life in surprising condition. The paint is flawless. The only thing wrong is the foam used inside the mic for a blast filter. It has deteriorated to yellow powder. A fun time capsule. #vintage #microphone #vintagemicrophone #microphonecollection #recordingstudio #voiceover #midcentury

Some ribbon mics from THE microphone company, RCA. These are all from the #50s and #60s. #vintagemicrophone #microphonecollection #recordingstudio #vintagerecording #vintage #midcentury #voiceover
