mounting hardware for 639b
« on: October 11, 2013, 12:45:30 PM »

Hi,

I have 2 old 639b mics, one WE, one Altec. Neither came with mounting hardware. Anyone familiar with these mics? Any idea where to get a stand mount?

I also have a pair of 639B, both WE.

Regarding mounts, there seems to be two vintage options, a yoke and a slotted connector/mount, both difficult to find.

I use the adaptor/mount from Wes Dooley at AEA, expensive at $100 but it fits standard 5/8-27 threads and has an XLR pigtail.

Great warm mics, I use the "C" position, really nice on jazz horns and bright acoustics like mandolin, National steel and banjo.

The Coles adaptor will convert XLR to the WE 442 connector but I don't think that unit has a mounting provision.

The adaptor I'm referring to has a bottam fitting that accepts a standard mic stand, with a short XLR pigtail for output.

I don't see it it listed but just give them a call.
