Historic Tomato Can Microphone Museum RARE RARE RARE Obscenely RARE KDKA Vintage Carbon Mic


Here is a microphone that should be in a museum, it is so incredibly rare. It is commonly known as a “Tomato Can” microphone and is the same type of microphone used in the first radio broadcast from KDKA in Pittsburgh in 1920. Only a few of these exist, and the Paquette Museum has 5 of them. In order to maintain the core of the awesome mic collection, a few of these duplicate mics, even as historic as this one, will need to be sold. This mic is in excellent condition, with a black painted body and a rubber base. The carbon element looks to be complete though it has not been tested. Another one of these may never be sold again. Enjoy!
