SM57 condenser mic cheap!

Just want to give you all a heads up on a great deal that I spotted on Craigslist.

Subject:
SHURE SM57 condenser mic. MUST GO TODAY-perfect condition - $125 (philly)

Body:
shure sm57 dynamic condensor mic in perfect condition MUST GO TODAY!!!!!!

And there is a stock picture of the ol' sm57.

Where else will you find the rare sm57 "dynamic condenser mic" in perfect condition for only $25 more than it would cost new?

Sadly, you cannot post Craigslist links here, it seems? So, I had to actually copy/paste the text in here. Oh well.

i don't think he means the sm87, because he definitely has a picture of the 57 on there

Beware as it uses a tube so rare that nobody has actually ever seen one!

Obviously it's a fluke because everyone here knows that SHURE never made a condensor version of either the SM57 or SM58.

It must have NOS original Telefunken tubes from Hitler's personal stash. The transformer is also actually a transformer... it will transform into an ass kicking robot and save the day.

I've always wanted a cheap condenser like a 57....seems a bit cheap though, must be something wrong with it!

No, I literally cannot! My intention was to just post the subject of this thread as it is, and just have a link to the ad. But GS bastardizes the link to make it invalid - I guess in order to keep spammers from posting links to the crap they're selling on CL. But if you just google 'sm57 condenser' you'll see it in the top three results, right now it's third - right after this thread actually.

Maybe this will work?

I just googled "sm57 condenser" found the link to the cl listing and it has been flagged for removal! Too bad it would have been good for a laugh.
