Offered today is the Philmore Dynamic Vintage Microphone DM30 which has an Omnidirectional, Pressure Type Capsule. It is in mint condition. This was probably manufactured in the late 1950's to Early 1960's. It comes with the original box and ribbon.
These mikes were promoted as "cheap" studio microphone alternatives and it was felt to be ideal for tape recordings and PA systems. This mic was "Made in Japan" in the era when this label connoted poor quality. As with Vintage Japanese Guitars, modern day musucians now recognize and treasure the high quality work from yesteryears. The omnidirectional design eliminated "proximity effect". The impedance is 50 Hz and it might be a classy compliment to a harmonica.
The function of the mike was verified on my small PA and there was a strong clear signal. Feedback is quite common with omnidirectional mikes, as with this one. The condition of this microphone being superb and the OEM box, clearly enhances the value. The stand is not included.
