I have one. This is basically a JT30 / Hohner BluesBlaster - same shell, VC and element as an original BluesBlaster, which means an MC151 crystal. After the supply ran out Hohner switched to an el-cheapo-piece'o'crap element that is worthless. I don't know enough about the chronology of the CAD model to know whether there's a chance that it might have suffered the same indignation. The one I have had an MC151 in it. The volume control, like a BluesBlaster, is only 500K which is too low for a crystal mic. I ripped mine out, along with the XLR connector, and gave it a screw-on connector. Now it is JUST like a true JT30.

When those mics were produced, the only thing different was the gold trim on them and nothing else. CAD is well known in higher quality audio circles, so for thast crowd, it's an easier sell, wheras in most audio circles, the old thing Astatic ever stood for were cheapo mics and turntable needles.

Thanks Bob, I understand.

It is same as 80`s JT-30.

It's closer to a mid to late 80's version, but I'll take anyone made prior to 1984 when Astatic was still making their own crystals and ceramics and used the screw on connectors any day of the week over anything they've made since then.
