Offering a TURNER S33D (DYNAMIC) MICROPHONE from the 1940’s. This mic features eye-matching art deco lines and heavy-gauge aluminum body with vintage surface patina overall, topped by that signature Turner “shark fin”. This mic has some good weight to it. I always voice test every mic I sell, and the original dynamic element on this one performs very well…strong output and full fidelity. The short connecting cable comes with it. (Amphenol screw-on connector to 3 pin XLR male plug). These mics always prove to be a unique addition to any recording studio or vintage mic collection, or perhaps harp use. **THE MIC STAND IS NOT INCLUDED…for staging purposes only”. Turner’s designs were famous for their unique designs, and the 33D is a great example with that timeless “shark fin” at the top. While many microphones were rather boring looking in the 40’s and 50’s, the Turner microphones were stunning. They had neat lines that made them exciting to look at and now have become sought after art deco pieces. A bit of history…around 1925 in Cedar Rapids. there was a mortician named David Turner. Often during funerals, mourners would fill his Dad’s funeral parlor beyond capacity. At some point an idea came to mind and David urged his father to purchase some type of PA (Public Address) system to be used during funeral proceedings. By using the PA system, regardless of how many people attended, everyone would be able to hear what the minister was saying. Around 1931, the Turner’s started to manufacture their own PA systems and a long line of popular microphones. ** CHECK OUT MY OTHER VINTAGE MICS FOR SALE, INVENTORY UPDATED REGULARLY **
