Description

Amazing set of three Shure SM58 microphones used on stage by Joey Ramone during the Ramones’ last three or four shows, including the band's final concert, which was held at The Palace in Los Angeles, California, on August 6, 1996. Each member of the Ramones was presented with special mementoes from their final show. Among the items presented to Joey Ramone were three of the microphones that he used that night. These were given to him by roadie Mitch ‘Bubbles’ Keller in a black zippered pouch, which is included with the lot. The Shure microphones, each 6.5″ in length, are unidirectional vocal microphones with steel mesh covers that are used for live vocals on stage and in the studio, with this model designed to minimize wind and ‘pops’ and background noise. The Ramones used SM58’s for the last few years of their career. In overall fine condition, with scattered scuffs and marks, and some rusting to mesh.




From the Ramones and Punk Collection of Daniel Rey, and accompanied by a letter of provenance.
