1920s Double Button Carbon Ring Microphone

About

This microphone is called the " New Universal Model X " cord still intact and stand seems to be in good shape. This device is a carbon-button microphone, patented by Emile Berliner in 1877. It was one of the first ever created and by far the most usable. Berliner is credited with inventing the carbon-button microphone in 1876. Ring Microphones or Double Button Carbon Microphones or Spring Microphones are some of the most recognizable early 1920s-1930s microphones. These microphone elements are suspended by springs to isolate them from noise and vibration.
