Too Pricey For Me

Another ECM-51 "Match Game" microphone has come up on eBay. However, at $659 flat, it's too expensive for me to afford, particularly with the Japan trip coming up. This one has an XLR connector, which means it more likely to be in as-built condition. (The one I bought had a small connector that Lisa replaced with a 1/4" phono plug.) It also comes with the carrying case. No sign of the pop screen, and this one is a bit more scratched up than mine. I did learn something from the listing, however -- the little white button on the base of the microphone is a mute switch. I'd never tried pushing it with the microphone connected, so I hadn't found that out before.
