Nobody was using carbon microphones by that time. Not only did they
sound lousy, they were more trouble than they were worth because they
required a power supply. If you were going to use a mic that needed
power, you might as well use a condenser! They would more likely to
have used a dynamic (moving coil) because for portable use they were
sturdier than a ribbon.
