C414EB Questions

Discussion in 'Recording' started by Angus Podgorny, Feb 13, 2002.

  1. Last weekend, I had the privelege of recording Drums (a well-maintained 1967 Ludwig 4-piece with brand new Evans heads) in a large renovated barn, with AKG C414 EB's as overheads; All while my Fiance' was out tasting wedding cakes with my mother. What a nice weekend it was.

    Anywho, The C414EB's were the silver model, a matched set, in mint condition.

    Does anyone have any idea how much they are worth?

    I told the the guy who owned the mics that the pair was probably worth about $1500, which was a value I pulled out of my nose.

    Ironically, He purchased them a few years ago from the estate of the guy who recorded the Philadelphia Orchestra for WFLN... $50 each.

    They go for anywhere between $500 for worn to $800 (and sometimes more!) I bought mine for $615 and it's in great shape. I like it a lot. I'm looking for another so I can use them for overheads.

    I picked up an old one for $550 locally. The other day I threw it over a rack tom and got the best sounding tom of my life - only problem was I didn't have a couple more for the other toms - and the sound was so much better that the drummer instinctively played on that tom almost the whole session!

    Excellent kick-ass drummer from Boston with great kit, who does a lot of session work in NYC as well. If you're serious, PM me and I'll give you name and number.
