Vintage Bullet Mics For Harp Players

I have been saving pictures of neat harp mics on and off for a few months. I though that it would be nice to make a little picture gallery to help with mic identification or just to enjoy.

Collecting the actual mics is way out of my price range, but the pictures are free.

I will add to the list as time goes by.

American Microphone These mics are less common, but very much like the Shure, Astatic and Turner mics of the time. They invented the Salt-Shaker style microphone and feel very good in the hand for playing harp.

Astatic Corporation The classic JT-30 is the Harp Players mic of choice, but there was a model 30 that preceded it which was chrome and there is the T-3 which is the finest looking of the harp mics.

Electro-Voice Microphones
These were higher end recording microphones used in studios. Many are Low Impedance which makes them howl with feedback, but it is easy to find the higher impedance ones

Shure Brothers
Shure was the higher quality competition to Astatic and produced largely magnetic style mics, but also sold crystal mics (with Astatic elements). Harp players like the Green Bullet model 520 (and the crystal version - model 707) as well as the "Paul Butterfield Mic" - the model 540.

Shure Brothers Magnetic Elements
I found some pics of Shure Controlled Reluctance and Magnetic elements and thought they might be interesting

Turner Microphones
Turner made a numer of very cool mics with the classic Turner ridge which made them look like a Roman Centurian's Helmet.
