New microphone! SENNHEISER MD 430-17T

Fun fact. This microphone carries the additional 17T mark (we know because we have the original box), while in the Sennheiser catalogue, there is no such model, but there are 5 other MD430. Well, maybe one day you can solve this puzzle.

New microphone! BEYER M119

This Beyer sounds beautifully! Heart-warming. Truly warm and friendly, truly vintage. This is another nice surprise of this brand. Condition? Ideal. In the factory box.

New microphone! TANDBERG TM 4

This time, a guest from the north of the continent. Established in 1933, Norwegian Tandberg was known primarily for its high-quality tape recorders and televisions. And for the recording on the reel, a microphone was needed. And so, the TM 4 was created. Our piece is in perfect condition.

New microphone! UHER M539

New microphone! SENNHEISER MD 611 LM

This model came to us in practically shop condition. It's a simple microphone, but it's always nice to pull something like this out of the original box, unwind it from the plastic bag, read the instructions. And so another Sennheiser hits our shelf.

New microphone! UNKNOWN

And one more riddle. A plastic base with switch, a “gooseneck” and a small microphone with the number 2962 suggest that the device was used for station, airport or conference communication. Maybe you can help us identify this object?

New microphone! TELEFUNKEN MD 418-4

Look at our new piece in the Telefunken department. Doesn't it look great? Perfectly preserved conference microphone on the original base. We have just enriched our German microphones department.

New microphone! SENNHEISER MD 402 LM Black

This is the second Sennheiser MD 402 in our collection. The previous one was silver; this one, in turn, is entirely black. There are no other colour versions. Decent metal construction made in Germany.

New microphone! UNITRA Tonsil MDU-43

Today, we come home. A miniature work of engineers from Polish factories of Unitra/ Tonsil. For foreigners – this was our flagship brand of audio devices. Our piece has a stylish base with a switch signed with the logo of the Wrocław University of Technology. Best regards!

New microphone! APPLE 590-0670 Microphone

Vintage computer microphone? Why not…let's go crazy! There are two interesting facts related to this piece. The first – it was made in Japan. Second – it has a built-in amplifier that needs power to operate. Hence, the modified jack plug.

Administrator

New microphone! SENNHEISER Black Fire 515

Oh, we like the Black Fire series. This is just the second piece in our collection, but we do not lose hope to complete all devices from this line. A dynamic microphone from Sennheiser, good for the studio and on stage, in perfect condition.

Administrator

08

New microphone! PIEZO WX-172

The first wireless microphone in our collection. Theoretically, they do not fall within the scope of our interests, but... And so the title of the wireless pioneer of Oldmics.pl is held by a piece produced in the 1970s by the Japanese company Piezo. It worked on FM waves and frequencies 881-106MHz.

Administrator

07

New microphone! SCHAUB-LORENZ SM 100

Does this piece remind you of something? Of course! The Beyer M55 design, only without the manufacturer's logo. Schaub-Lorenz SM 100 was a frequent addition to the company's SL 100 tape recorder. It goes to the Beyer department.

New microphone! FOSTER DF-1

Miniature microphone beauties are a speciality of designers from Japan. This handheld microphone confirms this opinion. Greetings to the now-existing Foster Electric Company from Akishima in Japan!

Administrator

26
05

New microphone! TEISCO UDM-1

All-metal dynamic microphone by the Japanese company Teisco, known in the music world mainly from the production of guitars. Armoured construction and absolutely cosmic design. It looks like a solid piece of metal and it sounds like that.

Administrator

21
04

New microphone! HITACHI NDM-09

A trifle, but it makes us happy. A Japanese microphone for Hitachi voice recorders. Small size, but really decent. Cheap, functional microphone.

Administrator

24
03

New microphone! AIWA DM-51

Our collection includes another of the microphones of this somewhat forgotten brand, once celebrating triumphs also on the Polish market. And as befits Aiwa, this piece also defends the quality of workmanship. Welcome to the USA/JP department.

Administrator

26
02

New microphone! PHILIPS N8302

This simple, plastic Philips may not impress you, but you can never have too many microphones in their original packaging and in a shop condition. Another to that department. We are slowly closing the N series.

Administrator

01

New microphone! GRUNDIG GDM 516

A long, long time before the term “voice recorder” became popular in the courts and offices, Stenorette recording machines were used. Our hero of today worked with such a machine. Typical utilitarian design, but very helpful every day.

12

New microphone! SHURE 545 S UNIDYNE III

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the Shure 545 S Unidyne III Series 2. One of the absolute stage and studio classics. Valued and used all over the world to this day. Now in the USA / Japan section at Oldmics.pl.

New microphone! TOSHIBA 0B 1390 B

Did you know that Toshiba was once famous for producing great ribbon microphones? Our piece is unfortunately not one of those Japanese products, but it proudly holds the title of the company's first microphone on Oldmics.pl.

Administrator

New microphone! BEAG MD14-N

A dynamic reporter microphone on an original stand, which reaches up to 75 cm. It is manufactured by BEAG company, distributed along with Machlabor tape recorders. A very compelling construction.

Administrator

28
09

New microphone! AKG D125

A truly universal dynamic microphone for the stage and the studio, produced in the 1960s by the Austrian company AKG. Interestingly, it is still valued by sound engineers around the world. Our model is in a shop condition.

Administrator

08

New microphone! GRUNDIG GCCM 320

This inconspicuous microphone has two surprises. First of all, in the place where we traditionally find the switch, there is a switch of omnidirectional to renal characteristic. Secondly, it is connected with a DIN plug with 6 (!) Pins. It is hard to believe. Probably, working on it is not worth the time.

Administrator

24
07

New microphone! GRUNDIG Stenorette GDM 752

And another Grundig from the Stenorette series in our mini museum. Do we already have all the company's models for these specific recording devices? We may lack one or two more, but we are slowly closing this chapter.

Administrator

06

New microphone! AIWA DM-13

A solid and intriguing microphone. This Japanese Aiwa came to us in a practically shop-like condition, complete with a cable and a box. Isn’t she a beauty?

Administrator

06

New microphone! PRIMO DM-260

Is the Japanese brand Primo familiar to you? Exactly. And yet its history dates back to 1952. Primo operates to this day, but focuses on other markets. Their miniature dynamic microphone DM-260 from the 1960s came to us in excellent visual and technical condition.

05

New microphone! UNKNOWN

You like mysteries, right? But this one is really difficult. Full metal construction, screwed into the metal base. Completely devoid of markings. It looks a bit like Ronette microphones. Can you help us?

Administrator

04

New microphone! GRUNDIG GDM 759

A tiny Grundig lapel microphone. The flat plug allows connection to this manufacturer's Stenorette 2020 and 2060 cassette recorders. Sold together with the abovementioned machines. Condition? Perfect!

03

New microphone! AKG DYN 60K

And now, we will show you a unique gift. Here is AKG from the DYN 60 series created in the 1940s. For this historic miracle, we thank Ryszard Szmit, who everyday proves that the Polish saying “every Rysiek is a cool guy” is very true. Thank you, Rysiek!

02

New microphone! RFT DPSM 64

What a beautiful feeling it is when you unpack equipment from around a century ago and take out a new microphone from the box, even so inconspicuous, but with a warranty card for 12 months. This was the case with RFT DPSM 64. It was purchased on the 24th of February 1965.

Administrator

01

New microphone! TELEFUNKEN ELA M 101/1

What a collector’s item we've found. Every time we open a box with such a technical antique from almost 100 years ago, our hands are shaking. A well-preserved carbon microphone from a German manufacturer. To hang in a handle, which unfortunately we did not get in the set.

Administrator

12

New microphone! PANASONIC WM-2244-N

Panasonic took care of their customers. In the box, in addition to a really nicely-made device, a stand and an additional tube that allows you to hold WM-2244-N in your hand, you will also find a set of adapters. Wow! We are impressed.

Administrator

11

New microphone! AKG D25

One of the classics that was missing in our mini museum. We love this piece. The beautiful AKG D is not only great-sounding, well-preserved equipment, but also a graceful facility for filmmakers and photographers. Welcome to oldmics.pl!

Administrator

11

New microphone! GRUNDIG STENORETTE GDM 750C

We decided to get all the microphones from the Stenorette series, but it seems that they will never end. This time, Grundig GDM750C. Of course, new, in the original packaging. Maybe one day, we will buy a recording machine for them?

Administrator

12
09

New microphone! TELEFUNKEN TC 600 HIFI

The HiFi era according to the German brand. We do appreciate the box, a nice set but there is no windshield, and the body did not stand the test of time without slight soiling. But the general condition is satisfactory. We’ll take it.

Administrator

08

New microphone! AKG D160 E1

Excellently-kept dynamic AKG finger with an interesting sound. We have a few similar ones, but this one will also be useful especially because it is also in good technical and visual condition.

Administrator

12
07

New microphone! PANASONIC RP-V220

Such a specimen appeared in the section with Japanese and American equipment. Isn’t it an odd design? In the enclosed user instructions, the manufacturer thoroughly explains how to set the capsules to obtain the best effects while recording instruments, speakers and conversations.

Administrator

07

New microphone! MB ELECTRONIC MB 220

The fourth brother on our shelf. Twins with different fathers :) Everybody that is over 30-something and lived in Central Europe should remember this model. In Poland, it was manufactured by the irreplaceable Tonsil Company.

Administrator

06

New microphone! PHILIPS N8 210

Well... Perhaps this is not a super refined model from the Dutch manufacturer, but it is enough for a tape recorder. Besides, it looks new because we received it in excellent condition. It also has a beautiful base.

Administrator

14
06

New microphone! AK-1BM

An interesting bit from the USSR. A ‘miniature’ microphone for medical purposes, and specifically, the main part of a hearing aid from the 1960s. Fortunately, our hearing is still okay, but we are going to keep the device.

Administrator

06
06

New microphone! AKG D 202 CS

A beautiful specimen in excellent condition. Microphone to be used on stage and in the studio. We hope that one day we will be able to use its sound characteristics. And for the time being, it is going to stay on the AKG shelf.

Administrator

26
04

New microphone! OKTAVA MD 64

Another Russian classic on our shelf. We must admit that the Oktava MD 64 from 1969 looks quite nice for its age. It certainly will not be an embarrassment for its friends in the “Other” section.

Administrator

11
04

New microphone! HORNYPHON EV 7013/33

The appearance of this model will not sweep you off your feet and the sound properties are not the best, either. But not every microphone in our collection needs to be a studio masterpiece. There is room for this poor thing on our website.

Administrator

28
03

New microphone! UNKNOWN

And we have another specimen that we have been unable to identify. We think it is the Dutch brand Ronette, but we have no proof. If you have Sherlock’s genes or some loose associations, we are asking you for help.

Administrator

03

New microphone! TESLA AMD 902

We received such a poor thing from Czechoslovakia. A bit tattered but in the original box. An addition to the Tesla Start cassette recorder that was popular in its time. We are now looking for a similar one that is in the grey colour.

Administrator

12
03

New microphone! ELECTRO-VOICE N/D 408B

It is the 1990s already, but the design is very much vintage. We have been going beyond the 1980s quite often recently, but in the case of this model, we couldn’t help it. It will be useful for recording tones, the guitar or wind instruments.

Administrator

11
02

New microphone! PROTON UNKNOWN

Another little puzzle in our collection. According to the http://odemar.home.xs4all.nl website, we found out that the microphone comes from Norway, but which model is it? We don't know. If you, dear reader, happen to know something more, let us know.

Administrator

12

New microphone! PHILIPS SBC 3020

Ehhh, don’t you just miss the 1980s while looking at this device? The full-blown kingdom of kitsch forms and colours. Some people still like it. We are not so enthusiastic. Honestly, this Philips is within the scope of our interests, but whatever.

Administrator

23
11

New microphone! UNKNOWN

Does the name Państwowe Zakłady Tele i Radiotechniczne sound familiar? Some time ago (in the 1930s), this was the flagship model of Polish electronics. Does this microphone come from the Warsaw factory in Grochowska Street? Help us if you have catalogues from this period.

New microphone! SENNHEISER MD 427 Profisound

Another Profipower in our family. Microphones from this series are good for the stage and the studio, but they feel the best on our Sennheiser shelf. Professional sound. Perfect condition. Simply Sennheiser.

Administrator

27
09

New microphone! OKTAVA MD 59

Such situations do not happen very often. This Oktava came to us in a box with an original seal. We were the first people to see this microphone since the time it left the Soviet assembly line in 1971. A peculiar feeling.

Administrator

08

New microphone! PIEZO MX3 blue-grey

This microphone brings associations with armoured military vehicles — German ones, on top of that. This is already the second specimen of this model. The previous grey specimen did not have the original base. This one we received with the original foot.

Administrator

27
07

New microphone! TELEFUNKEN TD33

Not particularly impressive but it is nice equipment in terms of the design. A large logo on the grille and the selection of colours create a favourable impression. But when we hold it, the magic is gone. But this brand is always welcome in our collection.

Administrator

21
06

New microphone! PHILIPS N8306/00

Ohhh, how we like 40-year-old microphones that look like new, even if they do not impress by the richness of sounds and functions, as in the case of this one. A box, a tripod mount and a base - everything’s here. Excellent.

Administrator

05

New microphone! UNITRA MDU 25

Look at this Unitra MDU 25. Look inconspicuous? Perhaps. But we had been looking a well-preserved model for a few years. It can be very rarely encountered in auctions, so it can be called our national rarity. Our specimen comes with the original box, user instructions, receipt and warranty card. In this way, we know that it was sold on 05 April 1978.

Administrator

14
05

New microphone! HORNYPHON EV 7011/31

A very attractive-looking plastic Hornyphon design. The spitting image of its AKG and UHER D11N brothers. The third one from the clone series on our shelf. Perfect condition: a practically new microphone. And the box is also there.

Administrator

26
03

New microphone! TELEFUNKEN D9-D

Another Telefunken species. Closely related to the D9 A model, which has been present there for a long time, it is definitely less popular. Meet D9-D. Good condition.

Administrator

07
03

New microphone! HENRY RADIO MT3/15

A real giant. Both the size and the weight are impressive. And apart from the solid base and the microphone itself, the microphone is also equipped with a solid transformer. Condition? Very good!

Administrator

01

New microphone! PHILIPS T1700/00

This Philips looks inconspicuous at first glance but it has one surprise. The solid metal base with the beautifully engraved manufacturer logo. And the specimen is in perfect condition.

Administrator

03
01

New microphone! BEYERDYNAMIC SOUNDSTAR X1 HLM

We waited for a Soundstar in our collection for a long time, and we finally succeeded. Additionally, the microphone is in good condition and it is equipped with an original Beyerdynamics base. Hit and sunk.

Administrator

12

New microphone! GRUNDIG GCMS 332

This Grundig is one of the lost specimens. It had been on the shelf for 3 years, and nobody noticed that we had forgotten to put it on the website. But here it is, and we hope you will like the design.

Administrator

11

New microphone! AIWA DM 14

It is a true miracle. A beautiful Japanese Aiwa microphone. Additionally, we have a practically new specimen together with the original base. Something tells us that this piece will be featured in our next year’s calendar.

Administrator

18
10

New microphone! PHILIPS EL 3757/00

Another dynamic stereo design in our collection. And another stereo model from this brand. Do we have all Philips models from this period? We are slowly coming to an end. The shelf is growing.

Administrator

27
09

New microphone! BELL & HOWELL I331

A piece of metal. You can tell that you are holding something solid in your hand. A clone of the popular Shure model manufactured by this American company. Obviously, you will find it in the section with microphones from the USA and Japan.

Administrator

21
08

New microphone! SIEMENS & HALSKE LB 5024

A carbon microphone from the 1920s. Beautiful specimen in excellent condition. It is really impressive and we are proud that it shines on our shelf with special specimens. If any of you can confirm the number of the model or read more information from the designation, we invite you to contact us.

Administrator

24
07

New microphone! RFT DM 2112M

The warranty is a good thing. It says, amongst other things, that the microphone was manufactured on 24 August 1974, and it was purchased less than two months later on November 14th. The radio played John Lennon’s ‘Whatever Gets Thru The Night’. Listen to it and feel the atmosphere.

Administrator

26
06

New microphone! PHILIPS UNKNOWN

An unknown Philips model? Sounds unlikely, but we really have no idea what this design is called. It seems to be a part of a hearing aid, but we are not sure. And we need to ask our readers for help again. We know that you are smarter than the Internet. Will you help us?

Administrator

02
06

New microphone! SENNHEISER MD 4 S

Sennheiser MD 4 S This is one these structures that looks older than it really is. At first glance, the pre-war design can be seen, but this model was manufactured in the years 1949-1958. Our specimen is in very good condition. That's the way we like it.

Administrator

10
05

New microphone! TELEFUNKEN D77

Beautiful design. Visually impressive for sure, but its sound may be interesting. Our specimen is in very good condition on the original metal tripod. A worthy representative of the Telefunken brand.

Administrator

18
04

New microphone! PHILIPS EL3782/00

Isn’t this Philips beautiful? Respect for the designer’s skills. It is embarrassing to admit it, but this microphone has been here for about two years. We put it on the shelf and forgot to take photos. Well...there are just more and more of them.

Administrator

17
03

New microphone! RFT 13951 VEB 301

A beautiful specimen in quite good condition and on an original base. Apart from this, it is a heavyweight competitor with a very sturdy structure. Born in the colourful 1960s. We proudly place it on the RFT shelf.

Administrator

28
02

New microphone! SONY C-48

A wonder mike that looks like new and is packaged in the original box. Sounds excellent with the broad possibilities of configuration and with an optional power supply from the battery. Besides, we can understand right away why the Japanese quality was regarded as legendary at the time. A+ craftsmanship. Recommended for everything!

New microphone! RFT DM 2000

Another new/old microphone in our historical collection. We received it together with the instructions for use, warranty and the case. Another one in the rich RFT section.

New microphone! TELEFUNKEN TD21

New microphone! Z.W.G. Unknown

The mystery of Z.W.G. solved

You can always count on our readers! Thanks to mr Zasław Adamaszek, we discovered all about our mysterious bakelite exhibit. We even got its photo from a catalogue.
