Shure Unidyne 556s
« on: July 06, 2006, 06:34:11 AM »

I have unearthed a very old Shure Unidyne 556s mic, which has not cost me a cent.  It is fairly beat up given the many years of little care it has received, but it seems to work well enough from a very cursory listening.  

The mic certainly has a classic look, but from an audio perspective, is it worth spending any effort to refurbish it?  Any thoughts about this mic are appreciated.

Having this moved to the budget forum kind of answered my question.

Don't let that be the answer to your question. The "Mic Lab" is just really snooty. Klaus will pretty routinely dump any thread regarding a mic under $2k over here.

The 556s doesn't have much of a street value (none of the Unidyne era mic's seem to be worth much), but if it works properly it should be useful on harmonica or as an "effect" mic for vocals. Experiment with it and see what you think.
