About This Listing

This mic will have a bit of British history. It was owned by Dave Davies of the Kinks and i am told was used extensively by the band back in the 60s> Could even be the Reslo shown in the pic ??? ;)

Model: RB/L - Lo z impedance version - RED

The same type as used at The Cavern Club by the Beatles and also used on very early David Bowie gigs

Vintage made in England around the 1960s

Low z 30-50 Ohm

This version is a low impedance very low level mic. If you are going to use without the additional step up transformer into a Hi z input then you really want a mic pre with high gain and low noise floor... around 80db would be great
Step up transformers can be purchased to go into your DI Hi z mic pre inputs which would give an additional 20db. Please contact me for details on that if unsure 

This was tested with my valve mic pre using the correct cables and line matching transformer which had the original step up transformer fitted.

1 x Reslo mic and i will include an old cable to go with this mic and fit an XLR connection

Please make sure you understand what you are buying. This is a vintage LO z mic

These are very old fragile items. Tested and working but due to age no warranty can be offered. Please see photos for condition
