Philips EL6031/50 very small microphone, easy to hold for smaller hands. Somewhere from the 60's. This model was used many times by Fidel Castro at his long long speeches. And by Mick Jagger. It is nknown for its great properties.


The openings in the body I have closed with different colors 3d printing filament to make a 100% airtight cup.


Also I added an impedance transformer to raise the impedance to app. 1300 Ohms.


The mic really sounds warm and has a beautiful crunch.


I added a new switchcraft connector and all new wiring inside.
