Should I Fix My D-12?

I bought an AKG from a buddy that has never worked. Took it to AKG last week to get an estimate to fix it. They need to replace the capsule and want $180.00 to do it...Is it worth it? I bought it for $70.00

Are you sure it's the capsule and not the wiring on it? The mic is probably worth about $200 in working condition but I've seen some fruitcakes pay up to $400 for one. In that light $250 for a working mic isn't bad AS LONG AS they don't put a D112 capsule in there. I'd probably spend the dough and get it fixed.

If you decide not to fix it, I'd buy it from you. I could use the spare parts!

Just sell it on ebay listed as "Untested, but worked that last time I tried it" like every other smuck. If that doesn't work, forge John Lennon's autograph on it and sell it as a Beatles collectable.
heh

Who did you talk to at AKG? I remember that one of the guys over there was very good, and a couple of others weren't...

If I were you, I'd also give Bill Bradley at the Mic Shop a call.

I just spoke to the woman at the front desk at AKG.

I'm not familiar with Bill Bradley...is he in Nashville?...Do you have a number for him?...can I tell him you sent me?


Thanks!!
