    Hello micing experts, I have a question.

    Do you know which mic is this?

    I want to buy this image for my studio's logo. Thing is, I dont want my logo to feature a cheap microphone. Do you know which one is this?

    On the description it says that its a vintage mic, but I cant quite make out its model or manufacturer.

    It looks most like an RCA Type 77 to me. Tricked out in chrome, but the proportions between the body and screen have been stretched. If it's not a Type 77, it's probably still a good mic from the era. It's a beauty, I don't think anyone would confuse it with a cheap mic.

    It is certainly nothing to be embarrassed by.
