Turner Expander 500 Microphone Review
Turner Expander 500 Microphone Overview
The Turner Expander 500 is another legendary Microphone from the 70’s and 80’s and was extremely popular during the Golden Years of CB radio. Many people don’t like them and say that they are big and ugly, others love them. The Expander 500 had a very loud, powerful audio and it socked a real punch with audio that stood out from the crowd. The microphone had a tone and a volume control along with a meter to test the battery voltage. Some of the later model mics had a lock switch which was a great addition.
A piece of CB history
The Turner Expander 500 is a piece of history from a great era. They had a very distinct audio and when turned up they really packed a punch. They certainly are a big microphone and one thing that annoyed me about them was that the slider tone and volume controls always scratched the paintwork on the panel. Apart from that they are a real iconic mic. A must for every CB fanatic who grew up in the 80’s.
