Altec 639A Ribbon / Dynamic Microphone (Modified)

$850.00 USD
Here’s an Altec 639A Ribbon and Dynamic Microphone from the 1960’s! The Altec 639 utilized both a ribbon and dynamic element, with “R” Ribbon, “D” Dynamic, and “C” Combination settings in the A model. This particular 639 had a dead dynamic element and it was replaced with a Sennheiser 402/1 to continue to allow for both ribbon and dynamic settings. In addition, this 639 is missing the bottom cup and has some chips to the paint. Despite the modifications, it’s fully functional and comes with its original connector / stand adapter! If you’ve been looking for a microphone that can offer some unique tones, this is the microphone for you! Grab this 639A Ribbon / Dynamic microphone from Altec!
