BLACK akg c1000s
I found some Black Akg c1000s. Are these a older model. if so whats the difference from the new ones?
yep first model, made in Germany. They are supposedly better build quality....
any spec difference?
I have one of each, there's not really any difference in sound ( VERY bright and hyped up treble ). You have to use them with some care to avoid a harsh trebly mess.
As far as I know, all black versions are made in Austria, most silver models are made in Austria, the newer silver ones with the LED are made in Poland
i have someone selling both for $200. worth it?
Woops you are right its Austria not Germany, sound wise there no difference I could tell.....
most people hate them around here, I am not one of them. I find useful for a number of things...distant room mikes for acoustic gtr, bottom of the snare when you can get them at least 6 inches away, and percussion when you get them far enough away.

If they're fully functional, $200 would be a fair price to most people. Any chance you can test them before you buy them? Condenser mics can be ruined by moisture, so a test (or return policy) would be a good idea.
I'm with Link, and not a hater of the C1000 for certain tasks (live or recording). Although given their almost excessive high-end, I can't imagine who uses the "presence booster', their hyper-cardioid attachment can be useful if your pre-owned mics have them. The C1000 takes an extra large micstand-clip, so make sure it comes with the original or other suitable clip. They usually come with a case, clip, foam windscreen, presence-booster, and hypercardioid adaptor.
lol, dvdhalk I know what were they thinking with that presence-booster, seriously deaf designer on that one! I use the hypercardiod on drums, it works pretty well
