I'm confused...Makes me a little leery about the extra $800...
John, to clarify, Blackspade has no partnership or affiliation with Tim Campbell. Just like we don't have a partnership or affiliation with Mr. Thiersch (who's capsules we also use), and there should be no confusion about this point.
It would help if you showed us what your question to him was, and place it into context for all of us to understand.
We're also not charging $800 just for a capsule. You're skipping a $485 power supply, $120 shockmount and a $120 cable. Add $400 for the capsule to that total, and you get a clearer picture of what you're getting for the $800 difference.
