    I've got an old Rode NT1 (again, this is not the NT1-A anniversary model out now). I've run into financial trouble and it is a little more microphone than I need right now, so I'm thinking about selling it. Problem is I can't figure out how much it is worth anywhere! Does anyone know approximately how much I could get on ebay for the microphone, an AT8801 48v phantom power supply and a good six foot microphone cord? How do I price something like this?

    probably about a hundred or 150 w/power supply- I know they were 299 when they first came out (I bought one) but rode later dropped the price to 199- Another thing to consider is that the very first ones (the first year or so, 1998 I think?) had a great capsule which was changed when the priced dropped to a cheaper capsule- thus the first year or two were much better sounding than the later ones... I don't know how to tell which are which, though. I know that i bought a second one around 2000 and it was clearly inferior sounding.

    Prepal is a site that shows the average price that gear has sold for on EBay. I am not sure how often it is updated.
