Vintage 1970's Electro Voice 661 dynamic cardioid microphone Low Z w cable 664Vintage 1970's Electro Voice 661 dynamic cardioid microphone Low Z w cable 664

Hello and welcome to The House of Chrome. You are looking at a 1970’s era Electro Voice 661 model Dynamic Super Cardioid microphone with Dual Impedance but currently set at Low Z and perfect for singing and broadcasting as it was intended. This is based on the common 664A model and I honestly have no idea what the difference is between the two because they look and sound exactly the same. These 664 series mics are basically bullet proof. The original 664 mic was called the “Buchanon Hammer” as salesman would demonstrate it’s toughness by hammering a nail into a wood board then showing how the mic still worked perfectly without issue. Pic # 2 is from a catalog I have showing the 664A mics basic specs and characteristics. This was the 3rd generation 664 (A model) introduced in the early 1970’s. The 664 was first introduced in the early 1950’s with a larger, heavier frame. The 3rd generation was slimmed down to about half the size and came with a much stronger dynamic cardioid element. This 664A has a very nice sound and strong…100% output. The “Super dynamic cardiod” element was as strong as a dynamic mic you could get your hands on. As you can see in the pictures provided this mic is in good cosmetic condition having typical lite wear as seen in pictures provided. The satin chrome finish has just a few scuffs, scratches and lite pitting. The mesh grill looks new with zero deformation or discoloration. A new inner foam liner was installed as the original was all but gone. The switch slides smooth on the lower pistol grip and works without issue. The mic can easily be changed from high Z to Low Z by removing the switch cover and adjusting the lever underneath. Takes about 2 minutes from start to finish to achieve. The joint mechanism has plenty of tension to get the angle needed and it’s adjustable. The threads for the stand are perfect as well. Let the pics be your guide please. Mic is solid with no loose or missing parts. The XLR connection was cleaned as well as it was quite filthy. The mic comes with it’s original E.V XLR cable. It’s 14 feet in length and free of any damage. Just exterior stains though i tried my best to clean it up. Soft, pliable and comes with an older male Switchcraft XLR end connector that will work with most modern audio equipment. Mic is an easy 7 cosmetically on a scale of 1 – 10 and sounds absolutely golden. MICROPHONE STAND SHOWN IS NOT PART OF THIS SALE…FOR DISPLAY PURPOSES ONLY.
