(probably up until the 1970s sometime) used carbon mics. If you're not sure
about this, I'd check first to see if it's a carbon mic or a dynamic mic. If
it's carbon, it takes a bit of effort to make it work. (Although it might be
easier than it use to be since our current generation of mics require voltage
to them to operate...)
If this is a rehash of something you already knew, I apologize...
