This is a working Full-Vision AMERICAN Microphone from the 1950s. It is model number DR332. Made in the USA in Pasadena, California. This mic works and is in immaculate condition. No scratches or dents on the mic and it comes in it's original velvet-lined fitted storage case which does show wear. See pictures. Mic is beautiful and gold in color. It is a compact microphone, only about 5 inches long and 2 inches in diameter. On this basis, American called it a "full vision" microphone, an allusion to the face-blocking size of some of their competitors' products . Box measures 6.75" Wide x 3.25" Deep x 2.75" High.
The DR332 had a dynamic element which gave it a unidirectional cardiod (heart-shaped) pattern. All external parts are anodized aluminum. The lower section was advertised as black, but the dyes have faded somewhat, and have distinct maroon/purple tint in a bright light.
