One prop that retrofuturist musicians love is the classic microphone
. Nothing says "I love this era" better than singing into something that looks like it's from
Then I thought, "Damn. A Shure
microphone, while expensive, would be a great looking topper to a dieselpunk walking stick."
Since I don't have a Shure microphone laying around, I did a little online price shopping. As it turns out, even knock-offs
are pretty expensive, but that's because they still work.
If you happen to find one that doesn't work anymore, or if you have the extra cash, keep this idea in mind. It might look pretty cool.
