Name that mic

Post by Jim Sofonia » Sat Jun 02, 2018 6:22 pm

Just for fun I thought we could post pictures of mic's IN USE and see who knows them.
I'll start with Linda Ronstadt from about 1970.

Everyone else you are invited to post your favorite mic in actual use.

You are correct. I had to start somewhere to get the flow going. Anybody else jump in here with your favorite mic in use, not a static photo from a catalog etc. Thanks.
As for the 635, we took them off the air a few years ago, but they are the only mic that survive the "remote kit" The staff bangs them, drops then, and uses them to clear ice from their windshields and they still work.

Looks like an EV 666 to me (if that's a clip I see holding them). Had a few of them at the high school FM station I started out at back in the mid 1970's.
