Cannot identify this microphone!

Please use the link to see the image, I am not allowed to embed images yet.

I have googled my head off. I cannot figure out what microphone this is, from The Roller video by Beady Eye.

It looks like some kind of Shure microphone to my eyes, but I have not been able to identify it, its bugging me to the point of insanity. Any ideas?...

It looks like a cheap Far East microphone from the 1960's / 1970's.

The connector looks like one that were common on cheap mics at the time.

And I'll embed the photo for you:-

Thanks for the lead!

I think I may have found it. I think it is a Lafayette 99-46294... pretty hard to find..

Yes, it does indeed look like that.



As I said, a pretty horrible connector - and - it's an unbalanced mic.



It's a "touch" connector that will crackle and make noises extremely easily.

1960's vintage.
