I'm always looking for bargains on mics, recorders, etc. But there must be more to life than Craigslist and eBay?! Where do you shop for those killer deals?
So.... if I tell you you'll end up bidding against me? :)
Of course ebay and I suspect each country has a local equivalent... I picked up my mint MKH70 w rycote & fluffy for us$800 via a local forum...
I suspect older location sound recordists probably have a mic collection some of which they wont/dont use so try wherever they congregate?
I've gotten some decent deals on taperssection.com. It's a forum site for concert tapers. Once you create an account you can gain access to their Marketplace.
