BOUGHT THIS NEW A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, AND AS GOOD AS IT IS, AND AS GOOD AS IT SOUNDS I AM NOT USING IT AS MUCH AS I AM AN OLDER AKG MIC AND AN OLDER HANDMADE CACTUS . . . . . . THE MICROPHONE AND POWER SUPPLY ARE EXTREMELY WELL BUILT, INCLUDES ALL ACCESSORIES, CHAMPAGNE CABLE, SHOCK MOUNT AND LARGE WOODEN CASE TO CARRY IT ALL IN . . . I ALSO HAVE ONE OF THE ORIGINAL HANDBUILT CACTUSES THAT WAS BUILT IN LATVIA BY JZ (JANIS ZURENS) NOW THE OWNER OF VIOLET MICS, HIMSELF THE ORIGINAL DESIGNER FOR BLUE MICS . . . . AND 1 OR 2 OF MY AKG SOLIDTUBES I AM SELLING . . . . CALL FOR PRICING . .
HERE ARE MANUFACTURER'S SPECS,

The Blue Microphones Cactus delivers a commanding, intimate presence with larger-than-life detail that is reminiscent of the world's finest and most well respected vintage designs. At a distance, the Cactus' B7 capsule delivers every nuance in the room, with finely focused resolution and clear, musical frequency response to the extremes of the audible spectrum. Up close, with its detailed highs and smooth mid-range, the nine-pattern Cactus excels at delivering a vocal or solo track right to the front of the mix. The amplifier is a transformer-balanced single vacuum tube sub-miniature pentode in a triode mode, along with the highest quality hand-selected electronic components to insure absolute minimum noise and distortion.
