Default Re: French Auction House Microphone Sale Oct 5th 2019

Old valve microphones are now collectable so the price of 10,000 euros includes an element of collectability. However, the prices of the cheaper microphones look reasonable. A brand new Neumann U87ai is 2499 euros from Thomann so a used price of 1300-1600 looks a reasonable estimate to me (though I've not checked on any additional charges the auction house might levy). The U87 is still widely used by recording studios and is probably the most used microphone here.
