A couple of Neumann M149s would cost this much new and make a wonderful, wonderful stereo pair for just about anything.

I would not buy a used mic in the upper price region in Europe right now (unless you are 100% certain of its origin) as there are too many counterfits floating around that have come out of East Germany. These are original Neumann and-or Geffell housings that have had crappy Chinese (Samson, T-Bone, etc.) valve insides put into them and are being sold on eBay and even to dealers in the UK and the US as 'reconditioned' or 'rebuilt'.

You can have a look at Wunder CM7 or Horch RM2J (or the new models). I agree with Mr.Byre that for this money I would better buy a brand new guaranteed mic ...
