[Harp-L] For sale: Shure brown bullet with working 99-131 original element!!

Hi all

I'm selling this mic because I have several that I never use and this is one of them.

It is 1946 Shure bullet with a very good working 99-131  dated 2-46 crystal element.
In the hands of a palyer who know how cup a microphone it has a wonderful tone and more than enough output.
The tone can sound full/bassy/honk and still have that nice crisp/tight edge.

Since I'n relative new to selling mic's I don't know what this one is worth, but I'm asking for a serious bid on:

I live in Holland/Europe so overseas bidders, shipping is $ 25.

here's the link to tow pictures:

and :

The shell has some serious damage on the paint but the shell itself is in very good condition.
The grill has no damage and could be brought back to shine like almost new.

I bought this one as it now, with the volumecontrol on it. The VC works fine, the cable is high quality.

It is not ebay because I want to sell it to a player and not to a collector :-))

happy bidding!

> Hi,
> I'm trying to get copies of the music for the following two old-time Southern tunes: 'Watermelon Hanging on the Vine' and 'How Old are You My Pretty Little Miss'. I've checked in all the usual places - Fiddler's Companion, JC's ABC Tune Finder, The Library of Congress collection and the Lester Levy collection - with no luck. The Fiddler's Companion mentions 'Watermelon...' and some of it's history, but with no music (in ABC notation) along with it. Both of these, by the way, are on the CD 'Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys, Vol. 1). The liner notes say that 'How old are you...' is a Kentucky courting song. Can anyone send me copies of the music or point me in the right direction to find the music (online and free) for these in either the notes or ABC notation? I realize that most of you are not into this kind of music, but some of you may be. In any case, I don't know of any other forum to try.
> Thanks for any help.
