That's exactly what it is worth. It's unfortunate that this little weapon got ruined by someone who can ask their assitant to 'find' them one, no matter the cost. Price paid. Boom...done!
I found a few a while back but the owners had obviuosly read the Blake article and wanted five hundred dollars. That is just plan silly. It's a little 'field' mic pre with two settings [I'm trying to remember...it's pretty funny].
