Offering a vintage 1930's Western Electric Model 618, an important historical mic. This microphone has a very heavy iron permanent magnet, and was state of the art at it's time for radio broadcasting, sound recording, and public address systems. While carbon mics dominated the earlier 1900's, this "moving coil" type mic eliminated the need for external voltage, so can be used with any common amplifier with mic preamp.

The brass casing has some oxidation and a dent on the front retainer ring, but it has not affected the performance in any way. The mic head is hard-wired to a new 3 foot cable with male XLR plug, and functions with strong clean audio. It's mounted to a heavy iron Electro Voice desk stand with chromed riser tube.

Audio sample on the video.
