posticon Wanted classic teardrop 575 m6 Astatic microphone


Wanted the classic teardrop microphone from Astatic, 575 M6 emoticon

I know, I know, but I have tried to buy several from here and elsewhere and not been quick enough or rich enough

It seems those that have these, either collect them or want to keep them, no worries, but some of you guys have some kicking around doing nowt You need to let them free ! emoticon

Its like seeing a Manx Norton or a SP America in a museum, they need to be up and running, no point in having these great things in cupboards, on plinths, or for viewing only Ride the bugger emoticon

Neuralgia, did you say?? emoticon

Seriously, great unit that I seem to remember everyone wanting in the late '70s.

I think it was that one, anyhow...

Still not yet managed to get one of these emoticon

They're not "very" rare but difficult to find one for less than silly dollars. Cant believe I managed to find a YC 7B frequency counter for my FT 7B, which are as rare as rocking horse manure, but cant find a Teardrop emoticon

Hope you dont mind me using my admin powers, but I'm making this a sticky topic until I find one emoticon Up to around £40 would be my budget for one of these emoticon

I have three but they are not in your price range let me know if you find one for £[sign in to see URL]
You can buy one from the us on e-bay for less than £[sign in to see URL] but you need £40 for the postage
Best of luck

Re: Wanted classic teardrop 575 m6 Astatic microphone


HE HE HA HA, I got one but it's all mine!, in fact I got an original teardrop and original D104-M6B minute man, an 1104c astatic desk mic and the silver eagle desk mike.
99% of my mics are all made by Astatic. I might wire that minute man up for the Kenwood soon, I don't like the Silver Eagle desk mic so much though, too toppy treble and it over drives the modern rigs, i'm sure it comes into it's own though on older equipment and AM stuff, and I don't like the style so much.

The teardrop is an ace mike which I think has a cult status nowadays, but the 2nd hand prices are more than what it would cost to make the thing, anyway hope you get one to play about with soon.
