Period:   from the full 1940's to the beginning of 1960's
Type:   Microphones
Quantity:   3 specimens available

An STC 4017C dynamic microphone with an exact repro BBC base and badge. This type of microphone was used extensively by the BBC in studios and on outside broadcasts until about 1953. The mic type was first introduced in 1938 by STC and the BBC. The design originated from the Western Electric type 618A (circa 1931) which used a 'dynamic' moving coil as the transducer. Notes: The mics overall performance was excellent, with coil resonances damped by acoustic filtering which was incorporated in the mechanical construction.
