Up for consideration is a vintage Neumann M269 multi-pattern tube condenser
microphone with cable, mount and power supply. These mics are basically a U67 made for German Brodcast with AC701 tube for lower noise floor, and smoother high-end, and with a remote controlled pattern selector from the multi-pattern PSU. This mic is perhaps the very best "Desert Island" mic in that it really sounds great on every conceivable source from vocals, acoustic instruments, to guitar cabs. These mics are relatively rare, and the big vintage mic dealers currently sell them for around $9,500 -- so here is your chance to pick
up a great-sounding, perfectly working, vintage, collectable Neumann M269 set save over $3,500!!!

This mic is in fair cosmetic condition, with some pitting, small dings and scratches from
50 years of normal use. It actualy lookes better than in the photos, as the photos highlight the darker imperfection areas. Functionally, it is in 100% working condition, and sounds amazing.
