I have an opportunity to pick up a MKH8060 and SCHOEPS CMC6/MK41. The seller claims they've barely been used and functioning perfectly. His price for the lot is about $1250 USD. (and it's possible I can lower that price a bit)
Great deal, good deal, normal price?
I haven't followed the used prices of these mics much because they've been way out of my price range. So I can't say how good of a deal it is. A quick used price search here seems like this is a good deal.
The seller has been trying to sell them for some time apparently. Over here I can understand why an expensive mic would not sell at a good price and sit a while - Small market and most people prefer cheaper gear.
I'll probably use the 8060 for M/S and flip the Shoeps to help with a MKH30 purchase.
Oh yeah, forgot to add "suspicious" to the list. Definitely possible.
It has been listed on a public auction site for a while. Not many people here using those particular mics for sure. So if stolen, would be out of country theft my guess. Or rationalization on my part. :o
He lives close enough to see in person. Will take a look and test.
