vintage microphone with boomerang stand

You are looking at a cosmetically very nice 1960’s era Made in Japan, Microphone desk stand with a vintage KENT DM-22 dynamic microphone. This stand was the popular boomerang desk stand made of cast iron and as seen in the pictures provided the original black paint looks incredible as does the chrome.
The 3 inch chrome stem / riser has very little wear to it. Any vintage microphone will screw right onto this stand as it has the universal 5/8 thread or you can use the adapter that holds the KENT microphone for easy in/out function. The black body of the microphone shows some cosmetic wear and scratches but the unit works as it should and comes with its original cable with 1/2″ plug. Asking $40.00 for both the boomerang stand and KENT DM-22 microphone or best offer. This setup would work & look great in a dj setup or home studio.

vintage & legendary Buchanan Hammer microphone

This gorgeous, timeless microphone dates back 50 years and is part of music history.
The legendary Buchanan Hammer microphone was popular with jazz musicians because of its affordable, big, full fidelity. It received its name from being manufactured in Buchanan, Mich., and because it was so heavy and solid that it could be used to knock nails in with it. Many claim its Hammer name also comes from musicians who could belt songs out with it. Manufactured in Buchanan Michigan it is possibly the coolest looking microphone ever made? It is so heavy and solid that it used to be said that if you didn’t want to use it to sing, you could always knock nails in with it ! Has appeared in many pop videos and on over 40 album covers. A single-element, dynamic mic, it was the first model to incorporate the company’s patented Variable-D design, which means that although it is a cardioid it has no proximity effect. It is especially good on male singers with ‘boomy’ voices. One of the few vocal mics of this period that still sounds good on a modern PA

This 13″ beauty is made of heavy brass under a chrome finish and is circa 1968 . Beautiful heavy feel with vintage look and sound.

ATHENA bookshelf speakers

sold_carousel-304I have a pair of Athena Technolgies AS-B1 Audition Series speakers for sale. They are in excellent condition (no scratches or dents). Very competent compact bookshelf speaker. Check online for shining reviews. http://www.soundstage.com/revequip/athena_asb1.htm
This speaker is touted as a best bang for your buck by many reviewers and outperforms many speakers that cost 3X as much. Athena Technologies AS-B1, is synonymous with “big, big sound at a low, low price.” The AS-B1 features the company’s 1″ Teteron-dome tweeter, renowned for its clarity, along with a 5.5″ injection-molded polypropylene woofer that’s said to deliver bass to about 60Hz. I’m still amazed — not only at how loud and clean the AS-B1 will play, but at how balanced it sounds overall. Athena does a great job of delivering high-end-type sound and great build quality at a rock-bottom price.I have too much gear and own 2 pairs of these Athena speakers and that is why I am selling 1 pair.
ASKING $100 FIRM for the pair.

Audition AS-B1 Speakers
Frequency response: 60 Hz – 20 kHz +/- 3 dB
Power handling: 125 watts per channel
Sensitivity: 90 dB
Impedence: 8 ohms
Dimensions: 13.75″ tall, 7″ wide, 9.5″ deep

vintage PIONEER vinyl stereo system

sold2es2000des2000ces2000bes2000a

This is a nice entry level stereo system for someone interested in vintage audio, without breaking the bank. I’m selling my Pioneer ES-2000 component system, receiver, turntable and a pair of Pioneer Cs series speakers. A little vintage wonder. Not a big receiver, at only 20 watts rms (or close),but a warm, delicate, perfect sound. It plays plenty loud as these are old school watts rms and not the chinese junk electronics of late.
From the time (1972-73) Pioneer made probably their best receivers ever.
This one is in almost in perfect shape, as are the turntable with nice vintage SHURE cartridge/stylus and the speaker pair. All components are finished in a beautiful retro rosewood woodgrain.
Moreover, this model is very rare in the Pioneer line, coming originally only in a set, it’s very hard to find today, especially as a complete set. I even have all the original owners manuals and sales brochures. Here’s a link to an identical Pioneer system so that you can see the components in video.

Life is serendipitous like this as she visited my ‘treasure trove’ of vintage items to bring home a cool theatrical lamp. I’ll be sure to make a visit myself soon, hope that some of you will as well. I’m betting her treats are just as sweet as she is. Thanks for the visit Milene!
