Fair price for a U67? Stuff to know

Hey Slutz,

Does anyone know the going rate for the U67? The range from good deal to the high end? This would be for an unmodded mic in typical good condition.

Are there any things to put in consideration that would change the value of these mics, such as serial # range, or if the capsule was replaced with another Neaumann, or the accessories it comes with (besides the psu).

Thanks!

The only thing I'll contribute is be sure to test the capsule. I have a pair of U67s that are very early serial number units that have been in the family since about 1962 or 1963. That said they were kept in very nice storage conditions by my father, and when I started using them in the early 90s they didn't sound healthy. They failed the breath test and the fix was to have the capsules reskinned by a talented Neumann mic restorer, and then they sounded great and still do. Point is, this is at least one case where the capsules needed work even by the time they were not even 30 years old.
