Need a PRO Microphone?
One of the World’s most “Expensive” Microphones…. JUST $20,000.00
One of the most expensive microphones in the world today is an original Telefunken U 47 tube microphone. It is offered from a vendor in Moscow, Russian Federation. This is one of the originally released products that hit the market in 1947. Although it was replaced by the superior performing U 67 in 1960, this mic bears significance as a highly prized collector’s piece. The vintage Telefunken U 47 has been gaining in value in the collector’s market as an investment piece because it comes with all of its original components in working order, and the numbers of the examples available are increasing in rarity.

Fender Couldn’t Play…. NOPE!
Leo Fender wasn’t a guitarist, and legend says he didn’t know how to tune a guitar either. This obviously didn’t deter him from creating the most popular electric guitars in the world.
He wasn’t, however, entirely unaccomplished with playing musical instruments. He became interested in music during grammar school and took piano lessons, but switched to saxophone.
His interest in sax didn’t last long, though, as his affinity for radio and electronics took precedence.
