IMG_0392 IMG_1076

Western Electric RA 1142 ribbon mics from the 1940s. Similar to Altec 639B and adapted for use on Motion Picture sound stages.

Serial No 375 is of very special pedigree: It was Samuel Goldwyn’s own personal mic, all the while at work laying the foundations for what is today’s Hollywood Motion Picture Industry!

Carefully restored by Stephen Sank ( son of Jon Sank of RCA BK11 fame ).
