Oldmics.pl collection

Our collection appeared on the Internet in 2011, but its story is few years older. We started with few mics – for show and for fun. Nowadays, our collection exceeds over 200 mics from all over the world. We are mostly proud of the oldest, rarest and brilliantly sounding mics. We use some of them in our everyday work. They're doing great, despite their age.

    One of the earliest microphones made by this Polish company. A two-colour, black & white body of an exceptionally simple shape. No support or stand hole. Very narrow frequency response.
