MKH50 "Branded"

Recommended Posts

Etching seems a bit much, but I guess a sticker is just too easy to take off. 

 

 

I wonder if this is one with a gold or silver chassis.... No way to tell from the serial is there? S/N: 24778.

Actually I was wondering if it was one of our hosts cast offs? Jeff?

It has to be another Wexler, most probably Wexler Video. I have never even owned an MKH50.

Sawrab,

 

Cheers, hadn't seen that, question answered. It was just out of curiosity anyway.

Thanks.

 

Best

Nasty. And SUCH a lovely microphone!

 

Exactly! When I first saw the thread title, I thought I'd found a kindred spirit that shared my disdain.

I adore mine - it's rarely off the pole. Sadly mine has quite a dint in the nose grill. I bought it from a chap on eBay who advertised it as in perfect condition, then when it arrived tried to argue that it had had sustained a knock after he'd put it up for sale, but didn't think it relevant to inform bidders!!!

 

Idiot.

::)  It isn't something I'd do to kit of mine. It's a bad idea in terms of resale value alone. Not to mention sacrilege ;D

Cheeky, and yeah its lovely mic to. Both it and a 8060 cover most of what I do at the moment.

Ebay. Don't get me started.... If I had the option to never use it again...

 

 

 

I'd take it.

I think if you look at a number of "vintage" production mics you will see that it was fairly common to etch your name and/or some sort of cataloging system into them. I have come across quite a few looking at 415Ts and 815Ts and the like.

 

Wexler Video unloaded a ton of stuff in late 2011 (and probably since then as well) including a bunch of Lectrosonics systems, all of which had the same etching on them. The handwriting even looks the same!
