Offered for sale this beautiful Astatic d-104 due to being redundant.
The D 104 omni-directional crystal microphone was developed in 1933, based on a design by Charles E. Semple, who had experimented with Rochelle salt crystals, during his work for the Brush Development Company, one of the first microphone producing companies.
Two of Semple's friends founded the Astatic Microphone Laboratory, in Youngstown, Ohio. Semple was appointed managing director to produce the D 104 and develop the market for it.
The Astatic D 104 was particularly appreciated as a microphone for all purposes recordings/vocals and instrument amplification.
When CB (Citizen Band) radio was introduced in 1946, in the United States, the microphone was often a D 104.
