AUDIO TECNICA CONDENSER INSTRMNT MIC_1

This looks like a sweet deal for NEW ATM450s. Would you say so? I think I'm about to pick a couple up.

It's probably legit.

I bought two of these off eBay from a "dealer" brand new, and it was roughly the same price.

They are awesome BTW!!

Now my favorite overhead mic. Lives up to the hype.

The stereo imaging is really nice on these mics and you don't need to get a matched pair since AT mics are all pretty consistent.

yeah, I hope they are consistent. I don't think they even sell a matched pair of atm450s anywhere. I guess it's better to buy 2 new ones than 2 random used ones though.

Yeah that's probably legit. I got a pair earlier in the year for about $250 off ebay. It was from a dealer with a best offer. I was surprised I actually won them with that bid! Great mics for the price. They aren't a matched pair, but they are very, very close.

There is no matching offered by Audio Technica, ever to my knowledge.

I do find the ATM450 to be consistent though so no worries in my opinion.
