The Echolette ES-14 was made by Sennheiser for the Klemt Co., Echolette in 1960. This is a vintage German Dynamic microphone of that era and shares the same capsule and design with the Sennheiser MD-409. It has been said that the original MD-409 is superior to the present silver model.  It has a cardioid polar pattern.  It was originally marketted as "Universalmikrofon fur Gesang" or a universal microphone for singing. It actually tolerates high sound pressure levels and has a great bass response.  The capsule rattles with movement as the foam rubber shock mount has undoubtably degenerated in 50 years but this should be an easy fix.

    "Echolette, Germany. Founded 1949, closed in 1969.

    In association with the Klemt Co., Echolette was founded around 1949. The founder was Hans Bauer. Emphasis was on production of amplifiers with reverberation (hence the name "Echolette") for professional applications. First products were entirely tube-based, later moving to partially transistorized designs. In 1969, the company merged with the Dynacord Co. in Straubing. Products under the name "Echolette" were produced until the 1980s."

    AKG also manufactured microphones for Echolette including the D12 (Echolette ED12/200 ) and AKG D 1000C (Echolette Top 10), to just name a few.
