Geloso M88 dynamic microphone

Here is a pair of funny little Geloso dynamic microphones, one is in pieces already.

The build quality is nice – better than the early Geloso mics which tend to crumble. It has an internal two-bobbin humbucking transformer, to give an output impedance of 250 ohms.

The diaphragm is made from a light plastic for fast response, and they sound nice, if a little light on  bass.

They use an annoyingly unobtainable 4 pin connector – I feel an XLR mod coming on…
The original unobtanium connector can be converted to XLR
