    Hey guys need your expert opinion....I've stumbled across a Neumann 1970's era U87,.. now the grill is a bit beat up and it is 30 years old.....are there any concerns or "red flags" I should be on the look out for with a mic this old?....He's asking 1,600 for it is this a fair asking price?...I am somewhat aware of this Mic's brilliant reputation but everything has a shelf life.... I want to know if this one is still worth the money ....any comment will be greatly appreciated ....Thanks :!:

    you can get it checked over and repaired for a hundred or so.

    I'd say take it.
