    Madonna Custom Prop Microphone Used In The "Rain" Video (1993). Custom-made microphone used in the music video for the single "Rain", which was the fourth North American single from Madonna's album Erotica. Comes with plexiglass case and four photos of Madonna in the video. Measures 12.25" x 10.5" x 16. One of the photos is framed. In Very Good condition.

    According to a letter of provenance from Bruce Harris, the consignor and propmaker of the video,
    this microphone was designed with a futuristic Japanese look, per the video designer. Harris came up with the concepts, made, and modified the slate, microphone, and sound board, which are all seen the video.

    Harris adds:
    "Over time, I sourced a base with a short connector that would do justice to the look of the microphone that I created. I personally made the display case including the plexiglass to protect the microphone. To complete the display, I digitally created a collage of images from the video to lay on the base to show the microphone in the hands and in front of Madonna while she performed for the shoot, thereby highlighting its prior use in the video."

    LOA from Bruce Harris.
