FS Shure 556S microphone. This is the high end broadcast version of the
famous nineteen fifties Elvis microphone. It's instantly recognizable by its
distinctive shock mount. It's in excellent cosmetic condition with a few
tiny scuffs on the finish visible in the photos. There are no nasty
scratches or bad pitting. The fabric windscreen is perfect with no holes.
It's working perfectly and sounds terrific. It uses a standard XLR. This is
the top of the line for the 55 series because of the shock mount and an
element made to tighter specs. It's a beautiful collectable vintage mic. I
get very good audio reports with my Kenwood TS-870. It has the 8 pin Kenwood
mic plug and is mounted on a nice round mic stand with a push to talk
button. Pictures available. Price is $195 plus shipping. Thanks, Charlie
