Sweet find in my band's mic case

    I joined a new band about two months ago, and I started rummaging through the gear at our practice space after a few rehearsals. I've been meaning to post this story but kept forgetting.

    While I was sifting, I came across a beat up mic case that was near the back.

    "What's this?" I ask.

    "Oh, that was a pretty sweet deal. We bought it off of a sound guy we used to play with - we just wanted to buy the case and the guy said we could have what was inside with it. I think we paid a hundred bucks for it."


    I pop it open and there's several old mic cables, ok. A few 1/4"ers, cool...

    Then I find several two SM58's and two SM57's.

    "Were these in here when you bought it?"


    Cool! Pretty sweet score for $100

    Holy cow! An Imp Whirlwind! "This is a helluva deal for $100," I mumbled to myself.

    Keep digging and I find...

    Not ONE but TWO Countryman DI's! I started flipping out and they didn't understand it! TWO!

    I don't know what those are, but I guess they must be sweet. Our singer used to keep his "stash" in the mic case. I was half expecting you to say you found something like that ;)
  3. Offer to buy them off of them for $10, if they work :)

    They're hella-sweet DI's that are pretty highly regarded for bass work. I've used them before, and I really like them. I've read a lot of interviews with studio players who use the Countryman on their session.

    Can you say "SCORE!"

    Two 58's- $0
    Two 57's- $0
    Two CM DI's- $0
    Whrily DI- $0
    Mic Case- $100
    A Sound guy that may have been smoking one day "Priceless"

    That's like $600 worth mics and DI's
