This legendary model of microphone was used by many famous artists and politicians over the years including Elvis Presley and even the young revolutionary Fidel Castro. Those clean lines and deco styling make this mic stand out from all the others produced over the last century. Made in Evanston, IL U.
This mic is a beautiful piece of midcentury Americana and it comes with the original cable and red mic sleeve shown. If you have never seen this model before it's only because they rarely come around. This was the one of the harder to find Shure 55S variants available and this is one of the nicer example I have seen or offered.This mic has been tested and has an excellent working element that can be used for any live event. A warm smooth tone with good bass. This was an ideal microphone for broadcasting and singing purposes. The impedance switch works perfectly on all settings. As seen in the pics provided this 7A65 is in very good physical condition. The satin chrome finish still has a beautiful luster to it despite the tiny scratches and scuff marks.
No broken or bent ribs. The royal blue silk screens are dark and evenly colored with just a few tiny holes or rips. Very hard to see even up close. Mic is solid inside and out. I secure the element as they become loose afters years of wear.
The joint mechanism holds strong and the DuKane label has extremely lite wear. The mic cable thread is perfect as is the threading for the stand you'll put this on. Overall this mic is a very conservative 7 + on a scale of 1 - 10.
A very nice example of a 70 year old Shure 55 S variant. STAND SHOWN IS NOT PART OF SALE... USED FOR DISPLAY PURPOSES ONLY.
The Dukane mic comes with a functioning original cable. It's 15 feet long and has a quality male male 1/4 inch end connector.
Cable is soft and pliable... I soldered this cable myself so I know it's good to last decades to come. The mic also comes with the red mic sleeve shown. It does show very lite wear but works great for this mic and a great place to store the mic while not in actual use.
Keeps the mic from getting scuffs and scratches as well. If you demand one of the rarer 55S mics available for your collection...
This 7A65 will do the trick. As with all my vintage microphones.. I can promise you will be happy with it for the price paid.
Simply return in the same nice condition... INTERNATIONAL BUYERS are welcome as well.
