Illuminated NBC/CBS Spring Microphone
This microphone lamp is carefully handcrafted to match precisely the style of carbon spring-mounted microphones from the early days of broadcasting. It is built from scratch, from raw materials and appropriate fittings to reproduce rare and valuable spring-mounted microphones. Each of these microphones is unique, featuring different designs and materials.
The logo at the top is made from solid brass, and is cut precisely to match the original NBC and CBS radio logos from the corporations' early radio days.
Few authentic spring microphones have survived into the present; those that have are rare and expensive to acquire. But their captivating design and extraordinary place in history inspired Illuminated Objects to create an affordable alternative to provide warm illumination and unique beauty for your home or office.
The Spring Microphone features a full-range dimmer switch on the base, allowing fine adjustments to light levels from barely visible to cheerily bright. The base, otherwise hollow, is given more stability by being weighted, and is finished with a durable pressed foam neoprene rubber to protect surfaces. The bulb used is designed and manufactured to Illuminated Objects' demanding specifications and provides 3,000 hours of service.
The device measures 13"h x 6"d x 5"w.
All electrical materials used are certified, and all connections are designed for safety and durability. The unit has been thoroughly tested for reliability and soundness.
