This is a Reissmann (EF12) Vintage Bottle condenser microphone, circa 1920's. The mic is of German heritage and evolved at the same time that Neumann was working his magic. In Europe, the bottle microphone was as popular as the RCA 77 series in the USA. The quality of these mics is well known. Hitler, in fact, used such a microphone to hypnotize and entire nation into genocide. Blue has continued the legency in it's design of many modern mikes (Blue Baby Bottle).
The microphone is untested as I don't have cabling or a power supply. Cosmetically, it is good shape. I haven't disassembled this one.
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. (International buyers note if the packed weight exceeds 4 pounds, Global Priority Mail is not an option. 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.
