I have come in contact with 2 old mics.They are both the same. The mic hesd says General Electric but underneath it it states Shure Brothers Evanston Il. model s36. i believe that is the base no.. Tmic itself says shure brothers model97u29 They're both in very nice shape and I wondered if anyon could tell me about them. dynamic,electrolitic,impedance and so on. Any help will be appreciated Thanks Richard KM5WX

Haven't seen a reference to electrolytic microphones other than in one of my old books of about 1924.

So it most unlikely that they are electrolytic microphones.

Shure Brothers has an extensive library of documentation for their microphones --
past and present.

The Shure S-36 refers to the 1950s tear-drop (ArtDeco) desk stand for microphones.

The 1950s era model 97u29 refers to the Shure 510MD and S36 stand which were sold as the Fixed-Station Dispatcher to many LMR mfg ( GE, RCA, Motorola, etc.).

Shure 510MD Series (Rudak) -- 4,000 ohm Z

Shure 510C & 510S series (Hercules) -- 100,000 ohm Z

Some microphones models are highly prized and restored by collectors (broadcast, PA, movie/TV, music industries), the Shure 55 "Elvis" microphone celebrated it's anniversary this past year with special limited editions.

Harmonica demand for the old Green Bullet (model 520) microphone was so great --
it was put back into production in 2009.
