Need Help Identifying This Microphone

I've seen this microphone on Sesame Street. I searched for the make of this microphone and could never find out this information. Anyone know the brand and model number of it?

It does look EV. Who's the 5 guy in the first pic? The one that isn't Waddy Wachtell, Lee Sklar, James Taylor or Oscar?

The drummer James called when Kunkel was busy. That should narrow it down.

I would guess an EV RE11 or PL11, pity the ports are turned away from the photo, but TV was all about appearance.

Electro-Voice Model RE11

I wasn't being sarcastic. I don't think that's Kunkel.

My guess is a Shure SM81 with A81G windscreen. Check the pic. What do you think?



The EV mics all had more rounded windscreens, and none had a locking rear collar - because the windscreens were integral, not removable. The EV RE16 would have been my other guess, but note the windscreen:

The Shure SM81 looks exact, so you would be correct, sir.
Well, that answers my question. Thanks for all your help guys.
