Dan AykroydAccording to WineSpectator.com, Canadian comedian and film actor of Blues Brothers fame Dan Aykroyd now has a winery named after him slated to be opened in 2008 in the Beamsville Bench area on the Niagara Peninsula located in Ontario, Canada.
What interests me at present, however, is the image and branding the firm has decided to go with…

Carol forwarded this photo to me of an advertisement for the highly anticipated Dan Aykroyd Winery. An interesting choice of branding imagery to be sure.
Take a look at this mic. Can you tell what brand it is, or is it simply artistic interpretation?
Microphone buffs, what do you think?

  1. Hi Stephanie,
    Looks like a Shure 55 cardioid. Maybe mid 40’s to 50’s vintage.
    I read each Vox with interest. Keep up the good work!
    Take Care,
    Paul Pistore

  2. That does look like a Shure mic; the tie-in likely has to do with the mics he used when in the Blues Brothers movies and performances.
    The Shure 55 was the old school mic often used in clubs (I am assuming) so likely a familiar mic for blues and jazz performers.
    Best always,
    – Peter
