    Hi all,

    I have a broken Shure 16A condenser mic. Not one of the more common Shures. They only produced it from 1999 to 2002.

    It's an okay mic...I think I paid $120 new for it. Shure charges a flat fee of $85 to fix recording mics.

    My Question: For this mic, is it worth it? Or should I give it away and use the $85 to buy a new mic?

    I love recording with the 16A. I use it for my hi-hats, snare (bottom), and sometimes an overhead. As far as a repair, you can buy a brand new one for $109. It might be worth it to just do that. Hope this helps!

    I could see if it was a $2000 mic or a $5000 Gefell or something. But a $120 mic? Naaaaaaa
