Since then, I've been passionate about most things musically related to this era. Whether it's jukeboxes, radios, microphones, or just the music. I started collecting vintage microphones about 6 years ago. My present collection is over the 70 mark right now. I even started a blog, The Deco Sound, to share my passion for these beautiful mics. Please feel free to pay a visit sometime. And if you want to contact me with questions about vintage mics, you can write to "decosound", at Gmail. I'm no expert, but I'll try to help in any way I can. (Read more)

  1. Thanks, Sean68!
  2. Great sign! Grapette was a big hit here in Brazil from the 50's to the 70's.
  3. Musicmad95, sorry for the huge delay in answering. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any more info on the mic.
  4. Rauland, sorry for the huge delay in answering. I haven't been active on the site for quite a while. I would guess that the price range today, for a mic in this condition, would be somewhere around $1...
  5. Thanks, brunswick!
  6. After a quick look at his site, I learned that unfortunately he passed away in november of last year. As a fellow collector, I was sad to hear about that.
  7. Thanks for your help, Bobber57! I will definitely try contacting him!
  8. No problem! I'd hang on to it. Specially if yours is in good shape. They're not known for their sound, but they are rare to a certain degree. I think that the main reason for not having opinions on th...
  9. TomNye, this is the first time I've ever seen a RYSTL microphone. Nevertheless, it's pretty common for these japanese-made mics to have identical models with different brand names. I have another one ...
  10. Thanks, cocacolakid97! I do it at home. Nothing to it, really. Just a nice background texture (in this case, something that comes close to red silk), and some Photoshop work later.
  11. One cool car!
  12. Well, if this is from the original ABA era (which it sure looks like it, according to the logo), it would be from 1976 at the latest. It was created in 1967 and in 1976 it merged with the NBA. But I h...
  13. Classic!
  14. Beautiful design!
  15. Great deal! Congrats! Do they work?
  16. Beautiful piece! How does the timing mechanism actually work?
  17. It's Wilt Chamberlain. He did brief stint with the Globetrotters, and went on to play in the NBA. The only player in NBA history to score 100 points in one game.
  18. It sure is! And it sounds really good, too!
  19. Thanks, Signaholic!
  20. Between the two, I think that the Turner 33x might sound better. But I'm not a singer, I just test my mics when I buy them, so I'm not really an expert when it comes to sound quality. If this helps, o...
  21. Toolate2, this is another one that is really worth watching, the Turner 34x. They rarely come up on Ebay in such good shape. But I must warn you that the crystal element that comes with it isn't that ...
  22. I'd probably buy it, if I didn't already have 3 of them!
  23. You're absolutely right! Some sellers are really putting the prices up there...even when the mic isn't worth that much, so be careful. Finding a mic in good shape cosmetically is a challenge. Finding ...
  24. Thanks toolate2!
  25. Thanks toolate2!
  26. Thanks kerry10456!
  27. Hehehe...thanks toolate2!
  28. Thanks, packrat-place!
  29. Thanks, chevy59!
  30. Thanks, packrat-place!
  31. Thanks, toolate2!
  32. Thanks officialfuel and packrat-place!
  33. Thanks officialfuel, packrat-place, and chevy59!
  34. Thanks aycockonxion, Signaholic, officialfuel, TylulaVintage, and toolate2.
  35. Thanks packrat-place, Signaholic, fifties50s, BELLINI68, Laureniscontent, kerry10456, ttomtucker, officialfuel, toolate2, aycockonxion, and EJW-54.
  36. Thanks officialfuel and vanskyock24!
  37. Thanks fifties50s and officialfuel!
  38. Thanks fifties50s and oldhippee.
  39. Thanks fifties50s and EJW-54!
  40. I remember that box! Still in good shape!
  41. Beautiful!
  42. I forgot to mention...on the back it has a switch, so you can opt between "crisp" and "normal".
  43. You definitely should! Of all the vintage mics I have, it's one of the best sounding ones!
  44. I live in Brazil, so the price range will probably differ. Nevertheless, I paid around $50.00 over here.
