Feeling the NEED

Got an opportunity to get a UA LA610..MINTY. No money, it's the holidays. I have a BLUE KIWI that would be a trade plus $50. I think I should get some money.......LOL. Other mics...Sputnik, CAD Trion 6000, Superlux CM6A. The pres....ISA220 with AD card, Joe Meek VC1, Yamaha MR816X, RME ADI96 via D/A PSX100SE for processing. Accessories...Distressor, 747, (2) Pro VLA's. I only bring those in becasue they are tubed/valved. Would you pull the trigger?

How often do you use the Kiwi? If it's not your go-to mic then yeah trade up. If it is and you're left short-changed in the mic locker hang onto it. The Focusrite isn't a bad pre at all!

I guess it's just the chance to get a Tubey Pre. Using the 747 or ProVLA just not the same adding to the chain. Forgot I have a Golden Age Pre. Was thinking bout getting the GA Compressor partner and calling it a day, and saving my KIWI. Sputnik is the Go To. Just that a LA610 for $1000 seem to good to let slide. Get the KIWI again later maybe. Thanks for your reply.

Just when I thought Guitar Center was a fair EMPIRE, the manager tried to screw me and give me 450 for my KIWI with shock mount towards the LA610. Here's the formula....ebay lookup, 60% of that price it last sold for. Forget about List, RETAIL, or anything else. Worst than a used car dealership. I promptly walked out. Employee told me just 3 days ago we had a deal, giving me 850 for the mic, and 10% off of the LA610 and 999. Change of plans today.......GC has now begun paying me back for the $1 a piece sale of DSUB-TRS/XLR cables. I bought 102 of em. They trying to get the money back.......LOL.
