An initeresting microphone carrier, in a pattern I have not seen before, but what do others make of it? Odd its a very well worn mic on a pristine mask>

Hi Alex, This looks like a repro to me. Mic looks right.

It almost looks as if someone had a look at an original and than repro'd it from memory.
I say it because some design features look right, but overall it's totally wrong. I mean who'd design a mic carrier where the mic itself is placed on your chin?

Very strange indeed and definitely not an original.

Cheers, Toine

I've only seen a handful of mic carriers and this doesn't really have much in common with any of them.

Even if original, they couldnt have really come together with one weel worn and the other pristine. I picked up a mint Type 28 mic on a loom in its box a year or so ago. Very nice.

he must have realised as its taken off sale.
