I'm pretty sure those are the akg C-451 series with extension tubes. I used to know the model numbers, but that info has leaked out of RAM, I'm afraid. I might know a PA company that owns/ owned a set that they would probably part with. PM me and I will give you their contact info.

AKG C28 with 'extension tube' or Neumann SRM64?

I think the one Bob Barker used on The Price is Right is a Sony ECM.

Electro Voice (EV) RE55? Do you mean a gooseneck or a long-stem?

The mic. is an original AKG C451 with CK1 head, metal windshield and VR1 extension tube.

The second picture is the same thing, but with the longer VR2 extension tube.

The BBC used these all the time back then.

Are you sure? The body is awfully thick for a 451, but about the right size for a C-28. I own both... I think that the pictures show the C-28 with the Vr29 (short extension) and VR30 (long extension).

Just to turn it around for a minute, the first picture is Donovan, who is the second one?
