Shure 520

This is a very unique build that I just finished. I wanted something different from the same 520 body over and over. If you are someone that likes to have something special then consider this mic. One of the main reasons for doing the machining is that a chrome mic tends to be slippery and I wanted a way to solve that problem but also have something more attractive and fun. The usual work has been done, Switchcraft connector, new wiring, grill screen and new grill silk. But, I also put one of the best sounding CR (controlled reluctance) white label elements I have ever heard into this body..hard to read the three letters . It really is strong and the tone is unreal. This mic does it all and checks all the boxes for a true CUSTOM harp mic. You have to play it to believe how good it is. A lot of work went into this mic and I believe you will love it and appreciate the details when you have it in your hand. This unique mic is also lighter than a standard 520.

Astatic Corporation W30

You are looking at a very early JT 30 which is actually a model, W30 from Astatic. This mic has the original pain while I had the grill done in beautiful, polished Chrome! New grill cloth that really goes well with the whole package, new grill screen, new Switchcraft connector was fit, new wiring, new screws that also really feel good in the hand and go well with the mic.

I put in a truly great Shure CM element, 1070 ohms assures a solid element and this thing is very loud but had perfect range. I have been playing in through my two Kalamazoo amps and it is just has a real Chicago blues sound.

Shure Brown Bullet

Sure Brown Bullet, RARE Great Strong Crystal Element

I kept this mic as original as possible for the nostalgia of it. I did fit a new Switchcraft connector, new wiring, new set screws that go with the theme and used heat shrink where needed. Look at how well this body and grill fit, that in itself is rare. The element is very strong and has deep base tones, great horn like mids and highs. This is a great mic!

Turner Challenger

Triple chrome plated grill, body painted in a deep red metal flake by Chuck Gurney I chopped the body on this to make the mic as small and light as possible and machined the top fin then dressed it for a low profile that does not hinder use for long sets but actually helps indicate and secure the mic in your hand.

New wiring, New grill screen and grill silk. New element gasket from harpmicgaskets.com along with a Super, Vintage Black CR element from Shure. This thing is so strong and has tone, tone and more tone to no end! It Honks!! This is the BOMB!
