    Excellent condition!

    “The microphones can be selected from a great variety of options. Variety because there are huge microphones which actually deliver less, and then there are tiny mics which surprise you with the potential it shows. I had compared Earthworks SR71, Neumann U87, Rhode NT2, and the AKG414. The SR71 outperformed the other more expensive options. I made a singer perform on all these available microphones, the output of all these was recorded and not revealed which was which, and was kept dry, i.e. no EQ, on it. Then a voting was taken to ask which sounded better from the three unnamed-recorded tracks the winner was the SR71. The SR71 is a tiny cardiod microphone, resembles a tube or some thing similar. And the end that you think is the one to sing from is actually where the cable is to be connected. The small almost invisible end of the microphone is where u sing from. But the output was phenomenal, and also the fact that it was much much economical than the others.”
