Vintage 1970's Shure Brothers PE-56D Dynamic cardioid microphone w clip & pouchVintage 1970's Shure Brothers PE-56D Dynamic cardioid microphone w clip & pouch

Hello and welcome to The House of Chrome. You are looking at a very nice 1970’s era Shure Brothers PE-56D (Unisphere 1) dynamic cardioid microphone complete with a cable and mic clip. This PE-56D is based on the popular PE-56 model introduced a few years earlier in the 1960’s but the main difference being that the PE-56D came with the standard XLR input instead of the 3 pin screw on cable and the PE-56D had an on / off switch which was much more practical. This was basically the same as the 565 model as seen in pic # 2 from an old Shure advertisement. This was a widely used mic by many musicians during the 1960’s and 70’s. Pic # 3 shows this model being used by Jimi Hendrix during a live show. This PE-56D has been cleaned and tested…sounds just like the day it was first manufactured. The signal strength on this old mic is very strong and very clear. No issues! This PE-56 has a Low Z setting currently but it’s a dual Z mic so you can get the High Z setting too if you need it. The PE-56D would be absolutely ideal for general broadcasting and singing purposes. It’s a real workhorse. The mic is uni-directional as well doing an excellent job of eliminating all background noise. As you can see in the pictures provided the satin chrome finish is beautiful with no signs of scratches or scuffs and about as nice as they come. The black plastic fitting looks excellent with zero wear. Mic is solid and a new inner foam liner was installed to help with unwanted feedback from wind or strong breathing. No loose parts. No dents on the chrome mesh screen or tarnish. The PE-56D is a real work horse and the switch works perfectly sliding smooth. The XLR connection has been cleaned on this mic giving maximum signal strength. The mic comes with a newer Shure mic clip that works excellent for it’s handle providing great grip and a wide degree of tilt up and down as needed. The clip will screw onto any desk or floor stand. A Shure vinyl mic pouch is also included and in great physical and working condition. A great place to store your mic while not in actual use. A beautiful mic that’s an easy 9 cosmetically on a scale of 1 – 10. Hook this one up and you are ready for any live event. You have everything you need except an XLR cable but these are very easy to come by. You’re gonna love the sound of this quality Shure mic.
