Microphone Identification Help?
I received these microphones with some other equipment I purchased and they all seem to have a ring where model information once was present and was wondering if there might be someone out there who could identify the Manufacturer/Model? The case they came in was not made for microphones which was I initially checked and not sure if it may be relevant in identification but there were 6 in the case all which appear to be identical. I have attached photos, let me know if any other photos may help. Thanks for any help guys!
It is not the Electro-Voice RE50 mic listed in the above link.
The mics you have where made for radio shack and probably made in Mexico by Shure, I cant remember what they where actually called but it has always been my understanding, they where essentially the RE50 mic.
You're probably right on that and that would explain why someone removed the label band, thinking it would improve their value.
I worked at an independent Radio Shack dealer (not a company store) right out of high school, and the mics they had at the time were mostly made by someone else and relabeled. Many of them were made by Shure, the Soundgrabbers were Crown PZMs, some were Taiwanese look-alikes. For a year or two, they also sold a relabeled Moog keyboard that I wish I still had.
If this post is correct, the suffix A or D matters, in terms of who made them, and where they were made.
yea the shure's are supose to be dead on clones of the EV RE-50 mics. i have used them and they are fine. made well, at least the ones i have seen.
wonder if the the suffix A Taiwan is the same qaulity as the shure Mexico made?
