maybe he's just passing on the bs that he fell for when he paid that much
for that "matched pair of SM-57s..." or that he's trying to
justify charging you up the wazoo so's he CAN buy something over the
believe it or not, you can drop just for an old (*whoops! did i mean
"vintage"??) $7K for an M-49, and even more for C12s and los
obscuros bottle style east european jobs.
and, if their power supplies are in crummy shape and their tubes are past
prime, who knows? that pair of 57's might be lookin better &
so when you're ready for that calrec soundfield mic...
just what the world needs....
