Neumann UM 57

This is a little too expensive for the "Sleeper" thread, but they are damn cheap compared to other tube Neumanns. Can anyone explain what these are exactly and how they compare to the more well known U series Neumanns. (U47, U67, others?) It seems like Eastern Europe and the old Soviet states have an endless supply of U57's that they are dumping via EBAY and through several US and international dealers. I know better than to expect "sumthin for nuthin" but I still need to learn why a $1400 Neumann tube mic isn't a good deal. I'm ready to listen. . :confused:
