We'd always lusted after this one - it has that perfect look that instantly reminds you of 70s TV. It's been seen a lot with Stevie Nicks. What could possibly go wrong?
Usually these are expensive for a dynamic microphone, used or new. This one was bought over the Christmas holidays, just before everyone had smartphones they were constantly on, for a ridiculous price on ebay.
It is a very good vocal microphone, it works great on percussive instruments and on any brass or woodwind. It does not deliver what you'd call a hefty low end, but it has great clarity in the upper mids and highs that makes instruments cut in a good, convincing way - without the very punchy attacks you'd get with an SDC.
