1950's Japanese dynamic microphone 2400Ohms. This mic!!!! It sounds like a beast. Just like all the Hi-Z Japanese mics. 


To me it looks like an Aiwa rip-off or manufactured under license of Aiwa. It resembles the Aiwa DM-11. It has a nice patina.


I disconnected the original cord and installed a new Switchcraft connector. All wiring is new.


Beautiful lows!


The stand connector is still in place.
