Hello and welcome to The House of Chrome.

 You are looking at a very nice older general purpose microphone made by Electro Voice in the late 1940's. This is the early 2nd generation 630 that has the polished polished chrome housing and looks pretty good overall and actually still works like new. It comes with the short cable in which to operate.

 These were affordable dynamic mics back in the day that were used for a whole variety of purposes. They are omni-directional picking up more background noise. They happen to make excellent harp mics today for use with a harmonica due to their gritty high impedance sound.

 This early 2nd generation 630 has the elongated lower pistol grip giving it a bit more character than the later 50's and 60's 630 models.

 It should be noted that you will want to use this short 7 inch cable with the mic because these older E.V 3 pin screw on cable mics have a very particular wiring arrangement. Just leave the short cable on the mic and attach longer newer XLR cable of choice and you won't have any issues. The cable has quality Switchcraft XLR connectors. The cable itself is soft and pliable. Very good condition despite it's age. 

 The mic housing / head is reminiscent of the jet engines being used by several American and Soviet fight planes of the day.

 The 70 + year old microphone has typical lite wear as you can see in pictures with fine pitting and a few very lite scratches and scuff marks but free of any dents, dings or fractures. The chrome has a nice luster still. The threads for the cable and stand are perfect with zero stripping. The on / off switch works perfectly too. The E.V label shows paint loss but still completely legible. Overall this piece is an easy 7 on a scale of 1 - 10.

 The joint mechanism works fine with plenty of tension. The on / off switch works great as well.

 MICROPHONE STAND SHOWN IS NOT PART OF THIS SALE...USED FOR DISPLAY PURPOSES ONLY.

 There are plenty of older mic stands in my Ebay store if needed.

 This will make a great display piece anywhere it sits in the home, studio or office.

 As with all my vintage microphones for sale...
