Oops! Deal to good to be true?
Ok so I posted yesterday that a friend was going to sell me a TLM103 for 700 and if I should buy that or keep waiting for a Mojve MA201fet which has been out of stock for weeks, which is what I've been set on, well correction, it's a TLM 49, he lives in a different city but is coming down this weekend and says its in perfect condition, hes a long time friend since high school I havent seen in 2 years, anyway, is this now an easy choice? With that kind of a deal, should I just go with the 49? And is it a better mic choice anyway, regardless of price? Appreciate any feedback, thanks.

I bought a pair of TLM103's new for $1000. I think $700 for a 49 is a pretty decent deal, however, it may not be the mic you are looking for. Can't say cause I've not heard the 49 or the Mojave.

Forgot to mention this is for rap/hip hop/r&b vocals only, no instruments, and whichever mic I go with will be running through a blue robbie into a steinberg mr816csx, if that helps, thanks.
