We collect old microphones!
It all started by some coincidence and became sort of habitual. Because not all of you can visit us in our studio, we decided to show off our ‘old mics stuff’ on the internet. Most of them aren’t fit for recording, but look perfectly on a shelf; however, some models are still pretty much usable. Our collection is far from being complete. There are loads of mics out there in the world and in Poland, about which we can only dream of. We hope that with time, our dream will come true :)write to us
News - in our collection
New microphone! AEG D 11/B
We like this AEG model very much. Especially when it's so perfectly preserved. We have similar feelings for his twin model, the Telefunken D11, which you can also find in our collection.
New microphone! PHILIPS 9585
One of the nicest Philips in our collection. Omnidirectional, solid, very heavy. It comes from the 50s, so it looks pretty good for its age. And we managed to buy it with a very rare 4-pin plug.
New microphone! NATIONAL WM-2051N
How did the 1970's mobile gadget by National brand, now known as Panasonic, look? Oh just like the picture shown. Perfect for a portable tape recorder. The item goes to the USA/Japan section.
New microphone! CRESCENT JUNIOR
Look at this rascal. It has come a long way to be in our collection. The Crescent company, of which we know little today, supplied the US market with gramophones and reel-to-reel tape recorders in the 1940s and 1950s. How did it get to Poland 80 years later?
New microphone! SENNHEISER MD 412-K
Another Sennheiser that arrived in ideal condition despite its 40 years. Box, case, manual and even the warranty card and receipt. The cost in 1986 was precisely 139 marks. Beautifully preserved specimen.
New microphone! UNKNOWN
A mystery! We have searched all the sources available to us to find the brand and model of this piece, but unfortunately we have failed. Is it an Oktava? It seems similar, but we can't be sure. Can you help?
New microphone! BEYER M80
It is solidly made, looks nice and, most importantly, sounds good. Another example from the M series, this time marked with the 80 number. The original metal base is a rare treat. In perfect condition. A real marvel.
New microphone! LOEWE OPTA LDM 12
The German brand Loewe has not made a golden record in the history of microphones. But that doesn't mean it shouldn't feature in our collection. Today, a cheap, consumer accessory for the tape recorder.
New microphone! HENRY RADIO HM IV
One of the first dynamic microphone models produced by the Austrian company Henry Radio has come to our museum. A 1950s model, set on an original base.
New microphone! JVC M-510
What a wonderful condition this JVC came to us in. Microphones still in protective film. Box, manual and all cables included. Just great. The model itself also looks perfect.
