For your kind consideration is this vintage Shure Unisphere I 565 dynamic microphone. It's in great condition, tested, and works perfectly. The windscreen is a little out of round with some very slight chips in the chrome band around the center.

Introduced in 1966, the Shure 565 is essentially the Unidyne III Model 545 with a chrome ball grille. It's the microphone used by Freddy Mercury of Queen and the mic's shiny good looks no doubt appealed to Mercury as much as its great sound and durability. In late 1969, the popularity of the 565 soared after it was used as the primary vocal microphone at the legendary Woodstock music festival. The head sound engineer for Woodstock, Bill Hanley, chose the 565 microphone because it provided superb gain-before-feedback performance. (At the time, the pioneers of arena rock concerts had not yet discovered the stalwart SM58.) Get your hands on this classic today! Comes with a the original Amphenol to 1/4" mic cable, an NOS C.B.I. 15ft Amphenol to 1/4" cable, a Shure bag, and mic clip. Enjoy!
