Vintage Rare 1940's Universal "handi-mike" 2127a Model Dynamic Microphone Old:
Hello and welcome to The House of Chrome. You are looking at a very unique and rare late 1930 / early 1940's era Universal dynamic microphone. It's made in Inglewood, California and was nicknamed "Handi-Mike" as it was primarily a hand held microphone that could be hung or suspended by the user or simply placed on and surface when not in use.This "push to talk" type mic has a button in the center of the handle that activates when depressed.
This is the 2127A model with an all metal construction and satin chrome finish that is in very good physical and excellent working condition. It still has the original dynamic element as nothing has been altered. A real gem and ready for several more years of use.The mic is appx 8 inches tall X 2 1/4 inches wide.
As you can see in the pics provided there are signs of lite wear on the finish but considering it's agoe of around 80 years this mic is qite impressive and was well taken care of. There are no dents, fractures or engravings anywhere on the mic. The black cloth screen looks excellent and again...the button works perfectly.The mic is set at high impedance and has an uber strong signal. This would be great for dispatch or other basic communication purposes.
The original cable was shortened to 6 inches and a vintage Cannon male XLR connector was installed. Simply attach any longer XLR cable to this mic and you are in business. The Cannon XLR connector was cleaned so there are no connection issues.
The mic has tons of character and will not disappoint.
And as always...
