re: [Harp-L] 99AC556

Hi, Riccardo

I've never heard of a 99AC556. MOST of the elements ending in 556 were dual impedance elements as used in the 520D - and are better than the 520DX element but still a little harsh. However I have seen some 556 elements that were single impedance - if so, and if it is a high impedance element (Shure also made medium and low) then it WILL be a good element.

As for the date codes, everything is explained here:

Hello Harp-L-ers

I'm just wondering if the element in the subject is a good one and how I
can date the element from Shure and Astatic.

I'm buy some new old mics and element to work a little bit on sound and
improve (pimp :) ) my newbie mics like the Shure 520DX and the Hohner
Blues Blaster.

Thanks for you help.

If somebody has a list of elements with dating and all the info you
think I should no to avoid crappy stuff I'll appreciate that.
