    wow! Its amazing to see how much technology has moved on in like 30 years! I have to say though, you can't beat the old fashioned mic's from like the 40's and 50's though-- they just looked so glamorous!! Cool pics of Elvis' mic's though!
    Life is beautiful, enjoy every second of it!! And don't forget to love!!

    If Leroy doesn't know, it's not worth asking in this venue.
    I've found his knowledge & dedication to learning these things amazing.

    if you need some help getting one, let me know mate.

    There's that video on YouTube called Elvis & the Microphone where he attempts to use a wireless mike with little success. He becames quite irritated & gets rid of it. Was that sort of mike (and it was very large, imo) just too new to be - successful (for lack of a better word)? thanks for the info

    I love that you take such care in all that pertains to Elvis, his complete wardrobe off and onstage down to his microphones. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us Leroy.

    You shouldn't have asked me this a year ago. I have to admit someone put me on the right track, at least with the brand of the mike's. A fellow fan is collecting each and every mike, mike stand and even the original cables. But once I get started I really go into detail.
    It's true, you're brilliante !!
    But, I also think I'm trying to get you to sing for us. There are a few that's allowed us to hear them . I'd like to hear what you've done lately.
    There's one that's on PalTalk I can't stand ....so where else to hear & enjoy your music??

    Great thread Leroy, It's this kind of detail that is not picked up by everyone

    Here are two more of the AKG D-202?

    I'll second that . In fact sometimes I feel like Leroy is teaching a class. I thought I knew a lot about Elvis, and I do , but Leroy knows and documents stuff I'd never even have thought about , but that I'm interested in when he posts.

    So Thanks from me as Well Leroy.

    The Elvis world has turned into shark invested waters. Instead of joining each other in the search to the real Elvis a lot of "so called" Elvis fans has turned into money making individuals. There are also a lot that has joined the EPE group and selling a kind of Elvis that never existed. A myth that they want to keep alive because it makes them looking better.
    I have always been a searcher, a thinker. I always try to look beyond the obvious. Maybe that's why I manage to come up with details not many have seen before.
    One of a few that sees things as they are...
    .not as we'd like them to be , or even think them to be .
