I'm stumped.
get a hammered sound from guitar or bass! http://www.stringhammer.com
hand-made version to raise money for manufacturing... kind of like kickstarter, but you get a fully functional item now

Jack in the box cashier mic, 1979?

I dont know. It looks like the ones they had at the jack in the box, mounted to goosenecks right next to the weirdo metal change cup that always amazed me when I was 10....

That looks like something that would be advertised in the back pages of morally questionable magazines...

are you sure it's a mic? The guy selling it wasn't named Darth Vader was he?

It's a protoype, of a Star Trek phaser.

It's either a Fentone or a Lafayette. I've got one somewhere in the bottom of a box of other crap mics. I think it's Hi-Z.

Yeah I figured it was probably a Japanese mic, maybe Calrad or something.
