Boatanchor Microphones For Sale:

Collins MM-1 Mobile Microphone
The Collins MM-1 is a pressure-operated dynamic microphone
designed to fit your hand comfortably. This mike is engineered
for maximum voice response, and its die-cast case is finished
in brushed satin chrome. With its mounting button on the front,
the MM-1 slips easily into a dashboard bracket supplied with
the mike. When the MM-1 is removed from the dashboard bracket,
the microphone is in position for instant transmission. A coiled
cord is supplied with the 22-ounce microphone. The MM-1 has a
frequency response from 200-10,000 cycles per second and has an
output level of -48 db.
This one works fine; there are a couple extremely small pits
(smaller than a pin head) on the chrome, but it looks very
good. The coiled cord is probably a bit stiffer than when it
was new. With PJ-068 connector for $100.

RCA equivalent to a Shure 444 desk microphone
Although the front of this mic says RCA on it, it looks like a
Shure 444, and has a controlled reluctance element in it just
like the Shure 444.  My assumption is that it is a 444 with an
RCA label.
Of course most of us know that the 444 is an extremely good 
communications microphone with great articulation.
This one works fine, and looks very nice.  It has a 4 pin
connector on it. $50

Generic Hi Z Hand Microphone
This hand mic is black in color, and looks like it might
have come from a HyGain rig. It has a PTT switch and black
coiled cord. $25

Shure 104 C, Low Z hand Microphone
This is a very heavy duty Shure mic. It appears to be new,
with stripped and tinned ends that have never been on a
connector. It is in its original box, with the original
instruction manual. $30

Generic Hand Microphone
This is a low impedance hand microphone, black in color.
With 4 pin connector. $25
With no connector. $22

Lafayette EAM-15 dynamic hand microphone
2000 ohm impedance can be used any place a dynamic mic is
needed. Stripped and tinned leads.
It works fine, and looks good also. $25

Prices do not include shipping from Florida.
