Comes with the original microphone wire. Both items are in the original box. The Beatles gave more live performances at the Cavern Club than any other venue 292 to be exact. Many of the photos taken at the cavern shows the group with Reslo microphones on stage. During this period most of the groups did not use their own sound equipment, instead utilizing the PA set ups which the venues would provide. The sound equipment for the Cavern Club was provided by a local company called Alpha Sound. We do not know if this microphone was used by the Beatles but is the same time period. Other acts that played the Cavern during that era and used the PA: Gerry and the Pacemakers, The Searchers, Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, Billy J Kramer, and many more. LOA from Tracks Ltd. COA from Heritage Auctions.
