REDUCED Bought these and have let them sit in a rarely used backup bass for less than 2 years. Look almost new with plenty of wire length remaining. Lots of info here on TB and elsewhere on tone, quality, etc. Noise cancelling = QUIET, yet unmistakable authentic jazz tone. Everyone has their own preferences, but these seem to make the top 2 or 3 choices on everyone's list. These were $240 new, are now going for $264, rarely if ever discounted! How about a bit more than NOT 25%, NOW 30% off the new price - NOT $195, NOW $185 shipped CONUS. PayPal please. Not really interested in any trades for these, but you can always try. Please use PMs/conversations to keep this thread clean.
