Vintage Rare 1940's Electro Voice 725 dynamic microphone old w Atlas standVintage Rare 1940's Electro Voice 725 dynamic microphone old w Atlas stand

Hello and welcome to the house of Chrome. Before the Electro Voice 726 Cardyne microphone there was the 730 and 725 model (with dual elements) which while very similar…has a more distinct front grill. The sheer size of this beauty would make one think it’s a ribbon mic but it’s not. The mic does not produce a signal currently but would be ideal for a fix or upgraded element. Introduced in the mid 1940’s…this was the competition for the famous Shure 55 Fatboy when the 725 was introduced though it never measured up in sales and popularity. It’s virtually the same size as the Fatboy though narrower in stature. It’s got quite a bit of weight and equally impressive in its design. A must for any hardcore collector of early American microphones. As seen in the pics provided the microphone does have quite a bit of wear in the form of scratches, fine pitting and scuffs. There are no fractured or bent ribs which is always a bonus. Best part is the dark black silk screens are free of any holes or shrinkage. it’s dark and evenly colored as well. The on / off switch slides smoothly and the E.V label looks very nice. The microphone has lost a lot of it’s luster but has plenty of patina and character. The joint mechanism offers plenty of firm resistance to keep this heavy microphone at just the right angle needed. This classic microphone is 100% complete. The threads for both the stand and cable are perfect. This 725 is a rare bird indeed. It’s going to grab plenty of attention anywhere it’s displayed in the home, office, studio or Man cave. Despite obvious signs of wear this mic is a solid 5 + on a scale of 1 – 10 in the cosmetic department. MICROPHONE STAND SHOWN IS PART OF THIS SALE… The stand is an Atlas desk stand from the 1950’s made in Brooklyn, NY with a cast iron base and 3 inch chrome riser. There is just slight discoloration on the original paing and the smallest of wear on the chrome riser.
