Is this a Good Deal on a 8060 & CMC6/MK41?

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.

Thanks for your input

Highly suspicious price. Even in well used condition....

Too good deal to be true. That's what people pay for one of the mics listed.

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.
