Shure 55C "FatBoy" Microphone (1940's)
Shure 55C "FatBoy" Microphone (1940's)
NEW!Up for sale is a vintage 1940's Shure 55C Unidyne "Fatboy" dynamic microphone in great cosmetic condition with absolutely no pitting in chrome. Factory set at High Impedance with no switch. The metal label clearly shows 55C and you can see the slightly embossed Shure Unidyne logo up close. I have had in my collection for many years and never tested, simply used for a great display. The original telescoping stand is included. The Model 55 has changed over the years. When introduced it came in three types: the 55A, optimized for 35-50 ohm low impedance; the 55B, built for 200-250 ohm systems; and the 55C, designed for use with high impedance equipment. By the way, the larger model is commonly referred to as the "Fatboy" while the smaller model picked up the moniker of the "Elvis" microphone, memorialized on a commemorative postage stamp (with "The King") that was issued by the U.S. Postal Service in 1993.  $379.00.
