This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Update 18th October 2011: This item still works OK with Pets and the Pets-level patch (1.26 for PC, 1.27 for Mac) that broke many other cc Buy Mode items - it's a type of item that isn't affected by the patch (doesn't have slots) and doesn't need fixing.

Following a few suggestions after my DJ Booth upload, here is a microphone & stand cloned from a floor mirror which can be used for all mirror interactions including practising speeches. So, as well as making speeches, your sims can also look like they're singing, reciting poetry and so on.


Although it looks like an electronics item, it's technically a 'mirror' and is found in the Decor section under Mirrors, at a cost of 350 simoleans.

It has two recolour channels, as below. If using patterns, it repatterns in an odd way - the mic itself will display the pattern you choose, but the central brace and the footstand will come out in two different random solid colours taken from the pattern, as seen in the second two below pics. I don't know why it does that, but I guess it's pretty good as you effectively get three 'recolours' on one channel!


You can now have bands that look like proper bands, with a singer (well, a rapper, at least), as demonstrated below by Cycl0n3 and the Sw0rdettes:




Thanks for looking, hope you'll find this useful!

Additional Credits:
A huge thank-you to orangemittens and Cloudburst for helpful advice that enabled me to figure out how to get rid of the preset default wooden pattern of the mirror I cloned this from, which insisted on overlaying the entire microphone and stand with a heavy dark brown wooden texture!

Made with s3oc, S3PE and Sims 3 Object Tool.

Tested OK with Delphy's Sims 3 Dashboard.

Thank you to Maxis for the Sims 2 microphone stand and freestyle microphone, which I cobbled together bits of meshes and textures from to make into this item.
