Type:   Microphones
Quantity:   4 specimens available

Another STC 4017C dynamic microphone on an original BBC circular base. This mic 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.
