I am a journalist and bought a microphone which is totally unsuitable for the purpose for which I bought it.
The SONY ECM MS957 is a very good studio mic, but totally useless as a reporters mic.
Some twit said it was what I needed.
Trusting what he said, I took it out of the packaging, left it with the retailer to be binned, and took it with me as I left to go to a press conference. A few days later I was out door recording, and realised the mistake I had made.
I bought it for €300, is in very good condition, it comes with a stand, pop shield and carrier case.
Anyone interested in buying this good for studio or gig mic, please call or text me.
I won't be able to check this board on this site every day, so a phone call would be the best way to contact me.
