Hello my name is John. I restore, recondition vintage microphones for display, prop and functional use.
This microphone is in good working order and all 3 impedance settings work. This would have been one of the last productions of the 55s in Chicago as the company moved to Evanston , IL. Sometime that same year of 1956.
The cosmetic condition is well above average with the dark silk screen panels showing no rips and the chrome body little sign of wear. The Shure logo and badge are both in very good condition and all threading is in good working order. The adjustment joint is nice and tight for setting the desired angle.
The heavy metal base is 6 1/4 inches round and the full height with the microphone mounted is 13 inches. The item "Vintage 1956 Shure 55S Dynamic Microphone And Accessories Working Elvis Antique" is in sale since Tuesday, August 24, 2021.
This item is in the category "Musical Instruments & Gear\Pro Audio Equipment\Vintage Pro Audio Equipment". The seller is "limekillerjd" and is located in Park Rapids, Minnesota. This item can be shipped worldwide.
