Vintage RARE 1940's Amperite PGH dynamic microphone old antique w period stand
Hello and welcome to The House of Chrome. You are looking at a very unique and somewhat rare Amperite PGH dynamic microphone made in New York City during the 1940's. The PGH mic was an entry level dynamic mic offered by Amperite at that time. It has a very industrial steampunk look that's all it's own. It comes with the period desk stand shown.

Pic # 2 shows this very model in an old Amperite catalog with it's basic characteristics and price. This mic has some good weight to it and built like a tank. As you can see in the pictures provided this microphone has typical lite cosmetic wear but overall in very good condition. It's has 100% original parts with all inner components including the dynamic element which is still intact but sadly, this microphone no longer works and should be used for display, prop or repair purposes only.

The PGH model had a highly polished housing. Most I come across are in very rough condition but this one is a pretty good example and would do any collector justice. There are several small scratches in the polished chrome finish but zero fractures or dents. The Amperite badge looks very nice as well and the switch operates as it should.

The joint mechanism has plenty of tension as well and you can get the right angle needed on the mic head. The threading for the cable and stand are perfect.

The front grill shows zero dents or tarnish. The mic will screw on to any American desk or floor stand but it comes with the older stand shown. The stand make and model are unknown but it's quite old. I would estimate 1940's to no later than mid 1950's. The stand has a chrome finish on both the stem / riser and base.

As you can see there is just as much wear on the stand as there is on the mic. The two do compliment each other nicely and the stand with mic is appx 11 3/4 inches tall X 4 1/4 inches wide. You can easily unscrew the mic from the riser if needed. There is a designation on the bottom that says GM 412. Again, I have no idea who manufactured this stand?

I would rate the cosmetic condition of this Amperite a true 6 + on a scale of 1 - 10. This would make a great display piece in the home, office or studio. These also make great lamp conversions if you are into doing such projects because of all the room inside the mic and the interested screen it has. As with all my vintage items.. I can promise you will be happy with it for the price paid.

Simply return in the same nice condition... INTERNATIONAL BUYERS are welcome as well.
