Actually I bought it off of a group buy back in 2000 when 797 Audio was new to the USA microphone market. At the time the only semi-affordable multi-pattern tube mics on the market were the AT 4060 and the ADK TT (both around $900-1000 if I remember correctly).

Soon afterward, Alan Hyatt at Studio Projects came out with his T-3.

Mic guru Stephen Paul was still around (but very ill).

The rest is history...times (and options) sure have changed.
