Another microphone from the @shure 1939 catalog. Lightweight and small, this little 76B was designed as a lapel mic. It has a unique pattern in the grill. I can’t think of another Shure mic that looks like this. It’s got a beautiful design. The early black Chicago label is still legible. A fun find. - - #vintagemicrophone #vintage # #microphone #early #shure #30s #40s #midcentury #recording #studio

#vintage @shure 550S on a rare S39A vibration-isolation stand. Great #60s vibe from both of these pieces. I especially love this #midcentury Shure logo. Looks like an impressionistic seagull to me. - #vintagemicrophone #microphone #studio #recordingstudio #gear #voiceover #recording

@shure 566 Unisphere I. Released in the mid sixties, the 566 is the pro version of the 565. The integrated shockmount was only utilized in Shure’s pro mics. The data sheet says it’s “ideal for use by professional entertainers in high quality theatre-stage sound systems and recording…” The common 556 was $100 in 1969, while this 566 was $150. Adjusting for inflation, that’s more than $1,000 in today’s money. I can’t imagine it was worth that! Amazing. #vintagemicrophone #microphone #vintage #midcentury #60s #recording #recordingstudio #microphonecollection

Altec 685B. Heavy, industrial build quality. Over 50 years old and still going strong #recording #midcentury #microphonecollection #vintage #microphone #vintagemicrophone #recordingstudio #60s

#vintage #60s Aiwa DM-47. I absolutely love the design on these #midcentury Japanese microphones. This one is all metal, and the build quality is quite high. I found this one in the original box with original accessories. #microphonecollection #vintagemicrophone #studio #recordingstudio #voiceover

Electro-Voice DS-35. Cool #70s vibe. I remember seeing these on Lawrence Welk on Saturday nights. My parents watched…I can’t say that I’ve ever watched that show on my own! #vintagemicrophone #vintage #microphone #electrovoice #recordingstudio #recording #voiceover #electrovoice

#vintage @Shure #microphones. This trio can be found in Shure catalogs ranging from the late 30s to the early 40s. #recording #midcentury #microphonecollection #vintageshure #recordingstudio #chrome

The infamous X-73. Well, I’ve actually never heard of it. Or even seen one for that matter. But that’s what makes it so special. Cool #60s vibe in the original box. Looks like it’s never been used. - #vintage #microphone #vintagemicrophone #midcentury #studio #recordingstudio #recording
