I don’t have many mics and rarely have the chance to use them so they will be next, but I suspect I will sell them except for a few faves. I like to take care of everything that passes through my hands. I even keep original packaging when I purchase new. I notice that I tend to place more value on something I have purchased, except for those few free things that have great memories attached to them.
I notice a lot of people lately who are "giving" stuff away, including myself.
First of all it was built in obsolescence, now it's so cheap new, and not worth it to repair that giving it away seems the only option. Who buys CD's, or books? You might get 20p each if you're extremely lucky. Seccondhand book and record/CD shops are thin on the ground these days.
Apart from really desirable vintgae or high-end industry standard stuff, you can forget about the rest, it's almost worthless.
