Electro-Voice Carbon Button Microphone (AKA “The Staff of Ra”)

16 Sep

This 1920’s era Electro-Voice ring-mount carbon microphone looks a lot like the classic model 100-D, though it is not marked on the body as I have seen in other photos online.  Anyone know exactly what it is?  I’ve been calling it “The Staff of Ra” — with the stand it weighs almost 20 pounds, and when I move it around (especially in the kids’ messy playroom) I feel like I’m about to pinpoint the location of the Well of Souls.  But that’s just because I love Raiders of the Lost Ark, and has nothing to do with the microphone.

Update: this item sold on eBay for $389.00

    I have an original quad-fold specification sheet for this microphone. Are you interested?
