If shopping for your first high end harp mic this is the one I most recommend. I manage to extract the best possible tone from the hand picked CM elements used in these exceptional microphones. Seasoned pro's are typically more than pleased with the tone and strong output.

Includes your choice of my standard Turner or Shure housings, typical examples shown. These vintage shells are painstakingly hand finished to a gorgeous appearance, each will have it's own unique character. Many other shell types available at various price points.

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 black label CR is widely regarded as the "Holy Grail" of harp mic elements.

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.

I have a dwindling stash of these. Typical brush chrome example is shown, some have different knurling on the ring, some have smooth chrome (different production runs). All are in excellent cosmetic condition and work just like they did when they were made around 50(?) years ago. More info in my free Harp Mic Buyers Guide.

If buying multiple items:   Be sure to contact me before checking out.  Pleased to send a combined shipping invoice, but unable to make adjustments post-purchase.

All items over $100 sent by insured USPS Priority Mail.

Small items such as Inline Volume Controls and adapters are sent via USPS 1st Class. 
Insurance is not available for this service, but may be purchased separately if you contact me before checking out.


By default, International shipments of items under $100 are sent by USPS First Class. You can request insured Priority Mail Service by contacting me before
paying.  First Class International is generally reliable, but can be slow to arrive, it is NOT trackable or insurable.  Buyer assumes all risk of loss or damage with First Class International shipments.


Shipping rates outside the US are only approximations.  If you contact me for a quote before purchasing, I might surprise you with a lower rate!  I also accept Visa, Master Card, and USPS money orders.  Contact first to use any method other than Paypal.
