Astatic Silver Eagle

Astatic Silver Eagle

In the shack I also have an Astatic Silver Eagle microphone. Normally, this has a very distinctive sound to it due to the crystal microphone element and the built-in pre amplifier.
The crystal element has deteriorated with age to the point where it became unserviceable. Due to the fact that these have not been in production for many years, sourcing a genuine replacement has now become an almost impossible task.

To overcome this problem a Heil HC-4 microphone insert has been installed in the Silver Eagle’s head. The internal wiring in the base has been modified to bypass the pre-amp as this is no longer required. This particular mike is more of a show piece than a mike which is used on a regular basis.
