What is the Shure S4546 microphone?

The S4546 was an OEM model - made by Shure for Webster
Electric in Racine, Wisconsin. The microphone element was crystal. The
S4546 was based on the Shure model 701A as shown in the 1937 catalog. The mic was packaged with specific Webster products.

The only difference between the Webster S4546 and a Shure 701A was the metal nameplate attached to microphone. The nameplate listed the S4546 model number, the Webster name, and a serial number.
