    I cant seem to come up with much info on this mic.
    I'm considering buying it for the studio, yet the price is making me a bit suspicious.

    Asuming the mic is in good condition is there anybody who can tell me more about it.

    I had a U67 that I sold. Would that be close
    to discribing this mic?

    Any well known flaws in build or any thing else I would be gratefull to know.
    Thanks

    Short answer is it's a Gefell UM-57, not a West German Neumann mic. Check on page 5 of this forum for further discussion of the topic. If you like the mic and it's fair market valued for a Gefell, go for it, but if someone keeps saying "Neumann, Neumann, Neumann", well, you know they're trying to pull one over on you.
