    The Shure 330 "Unitron"  is a UNI-DIRECTIONAL SUPER-CARDIOID RIBBON Vintage Microphone capable of Multi-Impedance settings.  It was manufactured between 1957 and 1983 and is similar in appearance to the 333 and the SM-33. The SM-33 became known as the "Johnny Carson Microphone" and this recently sold at auction for $50,787.50. The slender compact design was perfect for live television broadcasting and it was a needed alternative to the RCA 77 series which were large and obscured the performer's face. The 330 delivers a smooth, silky ribbon sound with a highly directional polar pattern and pleasant off-axis coloration, likewise excellent for a talk show host.

    This microphone has been tested and it is marvelous. The multi-impedence settings are likewise convenient and functional. The swivel shock-mount is highly adjustable and compliments the directionality of the mic.  It comes in its original foan lined box with the OEM (?) cable. The cable needs an XLR connector as I tested it with alligator clips.
