Custom Astatic 200S Mic w/USA 99A86(LK) Shure Hi-Z CM & Volume Control
This is an excellent harp mic with that great vintage look and that vintage Shure CM Tone. The Vintage USA Shure 99A86 Controlled Magnetic element measures 1050 Ohms on a DMM and has Super Strong Output and that Thick Gritty Tone commonly associated with Chicago Blues. As you can see this is one of the USA Manufactured CM elements with a LK date code.
The shell has been finished in Candy red Metallic Powder Coat for a near Bullet Proof Finish. The Chrome Grille is in very good condition and has been backed with Stainless 304 wire mesh and red silk.
A 10 position volume control has been placed conveniently at the bottom of the mic. The Switchcraft 5/8" screw connector and adapter to 1/4" jack are conveniently placed at the back of the mic allowing the cable drop comfortably behind your hands. The perfectly shaped bullet mic cups great in your hands & once you pick it up you won't want to set it down.
