I wasn't even talking about the mis-information by a certain dealer who shall remain un-named. My point was only that mics can be manufactured in China and QC'd / tweaked in the US as a way to provide quality at low price...but, yeah, that's completely different than lying about a product's origin. People who bought Peluso thinking it was 100% made in US got a bum deal... I guess we weren't. My only dog in this fight is accurate information...and that swings both ways - namely, that quality control in the US can help weed out the poor quality specimens sent from China, that Peluso doesn't make "clones" of any mic, and that builders and retailers need to get on the same page to not deceive buyers.
