Vintage 1960's Midland 22-208 Dynamic microphone Japanese old w Atlas standVintage 1960's Midland 22-208 Dynamic microphone Japanese old w Atlas stand

Hello and welcome to The House of Chrome. You are looking at a very unique and rare late 1950’s to 60’s era Midland model 22-208 dynamic microphone complete with original cable connector for building your own custom cable of choice. The period Atlas DS-14 stand is also part of the sale. I should state that i have never seen one of these models before and know absolutely nothing about them? I can tell you that the 22-208 is built like a tank and has some good weight to it being very solid. I can also tell you that it’s got a very strong dynamic element set at high Z and would make for a great general broadcasting mic. As you can see the finish on this Japanese microphone is decent with typical wear in the form of scratches and chips in the paint. Zero dents, pitting or engravings though and the front grill looks nice. The on / off switch works just as it should and the joint mechanism works perfectly as well. The threads for both the cable and stand are excellent. The mic will screw on to any American desk or floor stand as it has the American style adapter on the bottom of the pistol grip. This mic also takes the smaller Japanese Amphenol style cable. It’s smaller than the 5/8 American cable. I don’t know the Japanese size but I do have one cable in my Ebay store that will fit this mic. This will make a nice display piece among your other fine vintage microphones or simply hook her up and go live at any event. She will not disappoint. This mic is cosmetically easily a 6 on a scale of 1 – 10. If you are a collector of older Japanese mics and want something that few others have then this Midland mic just might do the trick. THE MICROPHONE STAND SHOWN IS NOT PART OF THIS SALE… The stand is a 1960’s era Atlas DS-14 “Boomerang” microphone desk stand with cast iron base. This stand was very modern for its time and had that Star Trek vibe to it and compliments the futuristic looking Midland mic. As seen in the pictures provided the painted finish looks very good with just a few tiny chips in the paint. The 3 inch chrome riser has a few small scratches. This desk stand has a wide stable platform that makes it ideal for those longer, heavier screw on mics of the day like the E.V 664, 644, 676, 647 and a whole other variety of Shure, Turner and Japanese microphones. The dimensions of this stand are appx 7 inches deep X 6 inches wide X 4 inches tall. With the mic on top it’s appx 15 inches when fully raised upwards…otherwise much lower. The stand comes with newer felt pads as the original were all but shot. As with all my vintage microphones… I can promise you will be happy with it for the price paid. If not…I have a no hassle return policy. The shipping will be on you as I believe that’s fair but the purchase price would be refunded. Simply return in the same nice condition…period. Check my rating. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS are welcome as well. Buyer must pay within 24 hours or an unpaid case will be opened and the item will be relisted. Domestic and foreign buyer will get priority shipping. If you have any questions feel free to ask and…thanks for looking.
