I never noticed a vocal quality difference between this KSM9 CG and the KSM9 HS - but this is charcoal black. Used on tour a lot, held up great, sounds like new. This went to Japan with me, if memory serves, where Angela Aki used it a few times when we shared a stage, as did Natalia Zukerman. Love the sound of this on my voice, but as I noted earlier, I have an awful lot of mics...
In original cardboard box, with literature and Shure aluminum hard case, mic stand holder and Euro-adapter for same. MSRP on this baby is $874.00, current Amazon price is $699.00 - but how can you put a price on something that went all over the world with Janis? How can you put a price on the amount of songs she sang into it, night after night, 12-20 songs a night? All that breath has got to have imbued this mic with a lot of talent, or at least, air....
It can be yours, along with all that good karma, for a stunning $899.00 plus shipping. Although, if you can pick it up at Janis' office, you can save on the shipping. And of course, can be signed and personalized if you prefer.
* Mic stand holder has pink tape on it, used to remind crew that it belonged to Janis.
