--------------------------the electro-voice 635a

This microphone needs no introduction to anyone - it's been a broadcast staple thru six decades.

This is the first microphone I really noticed on TV as a kid. Do a Google search on it and you'll find pages of tributes to its durability, its ruggedness, and its sound quality.

The 635a was introduced in the mid-60s as a replacement for the 635, which was a workhorse for many stations during the 50s and early 60s.

It's the gold standard in interviewing microphones for either radio or tv.
