RCA Model 77-C1

20 Nov

The look of the pill-shaped RCA 77 series of microphones is arguably the most associated with vintage microphone design.  Much has already been written on the subject, and I have to tip my hat to Gary Avey, “The Microphone Man” of the Modesto Radio Museum, who gives an excellent overview of the 77 series here.  The 77-C1 was actually three microphones in one, using two ribbons inside.  Another website also provides a detailed description of the 77-C1 with schematics and additional photos.  The item shown below is available sold on eBay for $1522.
