    This Vintage BBC, Ribbon-Velocity Microphone was purchased from a vendor in Italy. It was apparently extracted from a local radio station where it had been used and found to be operational. I have never seen another one of these. The logo appears to be original and not forged. I cannot find any information on this model.

    I tested the mic using alligator clips and a guitar amp and I got a soft but clearly audible response. I suspect it needs a good pre-amp and new cabling. The ribbon is intact. There is a dent on one side of the mike suggesting that it may have been dropped or incurred a collision sometime. The silk has degenerated (see pictures).

      The only postal option offered is the United States Postal Service, Priority or Express mail.   Insurance is highly recommended.  I will assist you on any needed. insurance claims but I cannot be responsible for lost or damaged uninsured items.

      International postage will likewise be provided solely by the USPS but surface mail options are not provided as the delay in delivery often results in disputes and anxiety on both ends.

Also, for all international orders, the buyer must supply a phone number for the customs form)

      I pack in a paranoid fashion, double boxed, bubble wrapped and often styrofoamed with shredded papered. The item is usually in a separate plastic bag as well.
