The link in the middle didn't work for me... the one on the top looked like a Horch, the one on the bottom looked like a Soundelux U-99... if they're both the same I'm going to guess U-99... but I've been wrong before and I know I'm going to be wrong again.

Looks like a U195, but maybe a U95.

Yeah, yeah, whatever...nevermind!

I've fixed the broken link so it should be even easier to see.

So, Horch or Soundelux, huh?

U99. If any doubt look at the funky shock mount. That's the one that came with mine 6 yrs ago.

The look is very Soundelux but as far as I can tell it doesen't identically match any of the Soundelux models currently available. The U99 doesen't have a chrome ring around the bottom.

Seeing as Fletcher chimed I don't think it is a Horch - the Horch does not have a Chrome band at the bottom either.

In nutshell, I don't think it is a Soundelux or a Horch - but I have no clue what it is

NOW - who is the screaming DUDE in the middle with the Beard!!

I'm holding a U-195 in my hand as I look at the pics. I'd say its an exact match.

My U99 has a chrome ring on the bottom. That's how you get to the tube. That is an exact version of the shock mount I have. tmy favorite shock mount but it's lasted longer than the one that came with the U195.

Sorry to pile on that middle shot, but it's just great.... looks like his "inner jaw" is about to come out and try to get Sigourney Weaver.

U195's don't always have the rounded top -- in fact, do they ever? The ones I've seen have a flat (not domed) grill on top.

Also, I think they're a little darker black -- like no grey at all. The lighter shading might be the photo.

Not sure about U99

I have a U99 in my lap, s/n 003, it looks very similar except the bottom section isn't threaded. At least one version of the U95 had a threaded bottom.

It is pretty damn rare that I laugh out loud in front of my computer, but this stuff F'in hilarious, I am glad no one is around!!

oh yeah on the mics...I could have sworn seeing older pics of U195's with a Chrom ring on the bottom but the recent pics show a black body and no chrome ring at the bottom.

Doesen't the U.S. Soundelux distributor roam amongst us ?? Come out I say and settle this will ya!

P.S. Damn you OKDen, you stole my next frikkin avatar!!!
