Great sounding mic  Time owned: more than 12 months
This is a great sounding mic. Do not readily dismiss it as a CB mic.

It has a good quality crystal element and a built-in transistor amplifier. The amplifier also acts as an impedance transformer for newer rigs. Since I was going to use it exclusively for vintage equipment, it was rewired to bypass the amp circuit. It produces a signal level and audio quality that you would expect from good crystal microphones.

I do not know how it performs with the built-in amp, but with the straight connection to the element, it sounds terrific.

awesome mic  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've used a number of microphones over the years but I give the Turner plus two the edge over them all. Not a huge difference from the plus two to the plus three or three B. But I still give a slight edge to the plus two. The plus two has a little deeper tone. I also like the retro look, but any Turner Mike gets a thumbs up from me!! Can't praise them enough!! I'll take one over any of the expensive mics, for the price, value and ease of wiring to any rig. I have turners on my Yaesu FT 2000 my Kenwood TS2000 and my Yaesu Ft 101 ZD, if you have a chance to try one go for it you won't be disappointed.

Great old Microphone.  Time owned: more than 12 months
Works like a champ. My only complaint is that it is too short. But, I always get good audio reports with it. It has no problem driving any radio. Very cheap on EBay, and easily worth the price.

Rating 5/5 +  Time owned: more than 12 months
After having problems with the audio quaility of a New FT-450 with the supplied Hand Mic I wired a Turner + 3 Super Sidekick to a Modular Plug & all My reports on audio improved 100% Now that I have My new FT-897D I got the same reports of muddy audio
So I wired an old Turner SSB + 2 to the rig and I am getting glowing audio reports . Care should be taken
With the Modular plus as 1 connection hs +5 VDC
I used a Modular Plug of of a Eathernet Cord . Turner Mics have been labled ( CB ) Mics NOT TRUE Great American Michrophones made for SSB communiacation Don't pass Em' up Kb4fla

A Classic!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Have one that I bought in 1966 and originally used on a tube Lafayette Comstat 25 CB radio! Have used with a number of rigs and it works fine.

Nice microphone  Time owned: more than 12 months
Been using a Turner plus 2 for years now with always good reports.Had one wired for my Yaesu 1000d and it performs excellent.Make no mistakes this microphone sounds as good as many expensive ones,but if you want to spend alot of money to make yourself feel better,than be my guest.

Small but packs a punch  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had my +2 SSb for two years now, and the audio reports have been that is sounds very good. But over all loud and crystal clear. I had a radio check comapring it to a Silver Eagle and was told it had better audio quality than the D-104. I was surprised since the mic really doesn't look like much. But I like the lock to talk handle and push to talk bar.
