Auctioned off on Iconic Auctions' website on December 16, 2012.
A Shure “55 S” brand microphone (Serial 5747 V) owned by Elvis, who switched to the brand at the recommendation of his friend and back-up singer. The “55 S” has unofficially been referred as “The Elvis Mic”. Used in the early 1950’s during most concerts and studio sessions this style of microphone is etched into the legacy of Elvis. This particular microphone comes with excellent providence coming with a letter from Prop dealer John A. Tarter, stating that the microphone was used to record numerous songs in RCA Nashville Studio Facility. The microphone was originally acquired from Elvis’s sound engineer Larry Finch. Full letter of authenticity from L.A Prop & Wardrobe/ John A. Tarter and Grey Flannel Auctions.
