Offered for consideration is one Ducati, Art Deco Vintage Microphone. This was made by Ducati in the 1940's, prior to their specialization in motorcycles. The item is quite heavy for it's size as it possesses a large dynamic element which alone weighs 1.65 pounds. This model was designed for an intercom as evidenced by the switch on the front.  Function was assessed and it works and sounds good. The Bakelite housing is in excellent shape and still has its shine. The capsule displayed in the pictures below is from an identical mikrofon as the present item was not disassembled.

In my experience, these mikrofoons are quite rare as not many were made and the Bakelite housing is quite fragile. What contributes to the value of my mike is the almost pristine condition of the housing and the absence of chips or cracks.


 


    The specifications of this item are:

      Weight and Height:  ~5 x 4 inches and 2.21 pounds
      Capsule:  
      Dynamic
      Year Manufactured:  
      1940
