Availability: In stock



Techno Empire is honored to present for sale this piece of recording equipment from legendary music studio, Grandmaster Recorders. Originating in the 1970’s as Hollywood Bijou Studio, where Stevie Wonder wrote and rehearsed his classic album “Songs in the Key of Life”, it later changed its name to Grandmaster Recorders where it produced dozens of acclaimed albums such as Red Hot Chili Peppers “One Hot Minute”, Beck’s “Midnight Vultures.” Tool’s “10,000 Days”, No Doubt’s “Tragic Kingdom” & Queens of the Stone Age “Songs for the Deaf” to name a few.


BRAND : Sony

MODEL : C-500

FUNCTION : Condenser Microphone

DESCRIPTION : This listing is for a beautiful stereo pair of vintage Sony C-500 Studio Condenser Microphones with power supply. 

  • Serial No. 1494 (Other unit missing bottom badge with serial info.)

ACCESSORIES : The mic missing its serial number includes a 25' XLR audio cable and hardshell carrying case. Unit 1494 comes as-is with its attached short XLR cable. Otherwise, it comes only as seen in photos, and does not include any other accessories.

PHYSICAL CONDITION : Very Good. There are some normal signs of wear on both mics, including faint blemishes and some minor indentations on the windscreen. Otherwise, it's in excellent shape!

WORKING CONDITION : Excellent. Silky smooth on both channels of the power supply, these mics are in wonderful operational order. #1494 has an especially present upper-mid response, and gives great articulation to low-register vocals. The mic missing its label occasionally requires an especially precise touch when changing settings, but works swimmingly. Both sound great and are ready to bring some unique charisma to the sessions of your choosing!
