Vintage 1930's RARE Audiovox carbon # 10 spring microphone w period Bud standVintage 1930's RARE Audiovox carbon # 10 spring microphone w period Bud stand

Hello and welcome to the House of Chrome. You are looking at a rare and unique 1930’s era Audiovox model 10 carbon microphone. This was a very common design for it’s time and it comes with the cast iron period Bud radio desk stand. This classic style of microphone was made by several American companies before disappearing altogether around the late 1930’s. I should note that the mic has not been tested. It’s 100% original but the working condition is unknown? This spring mic is in very good overall physical condition considering it’s age as seen in the pictures provided. The mic shows typical signs of wear on the polished nickel finish in the form of tiny scratches and tarnish. It has all of it’s original components including the 8 original springs. They provide lots of tension and keeping the mic dead center. These old spring mics are almost always missing a few springs or all the springs entirely. I don’t know how to properly wire this mic so I really have no idea if there is any output at all? I would rate this mic an easy 7 on a scale of 1 -10. The mic comes with an all metal Bud Radio desk stand that is period to the mic. It’s cast iron with the original black paint too. It has the classic 3 tier waterfall design that was very popular for that time. It’s got some weight to it and makes for a very stable platform. The stand is in very nice physical condition being free of just about any signs of wear. The actual Audiovox element is 2 3/4 inches across X 1 inch deep and the measurements with stand are 12 inches in height X 6 inches wide. If you are a serious collector of vintage Americans mics then you know what a unique mic this is. She’ll make an awesome display piece anywhere it sits in the home, studio or office.
