Below sounds not quite as it should,
my 215P,  out of the base,  is nearly 8 inches
long!  Also,  the 215P does NOT use an Electret
element;  it has a piezoelectric ceramic cartridge.
The electret element requires a bias voltage,
the 215P does not.  The 215P  is really an Electrovoice
mike (a founder of Ten Tec came from Electrovoice,
I am told).

I doubt if the mike  below is the one for which
you are looking.
