The incredible Twin Tone mic... upgraded to a highly coveted black label CR element. (availability varies) These elements were produced only in the late 1940's/early 1950's, unmolested examples are becoming quite scarce. The good news is that they were exceptionally well made, an all original correctly functioning example is likely to provide many years of trouble free service. Some CR's definitely sound better than others, only the best make the cut for a Twin Tone! Along with the Shure R7 crystal, the CR is widely regarded as THE Holy Grail of harp mic elements.

For details about this world class product please click on the Harp Mic's tab at the top of the page. Be sure to read about maintaining the Stripped & Polished finish before ordering.

The high international shipping cost for this world class microphone is due to the default setting for insured Priority Mail with tracking, I'm not profiting from it. I can mail it for much less upon your written request, but the risk of loss or damage would then be 100% on you.
