You can always take the fake with you to social functions and when you make a profound statement, slam it on the floor.
The weight is the same on the ones that I got, so they have fixed that. Along with the thickness and colour of the wires, using a bigger capsule, and many of the manual and packaging issues.Having also been sold a fake mic - a fake Beta 58 I can vouch for the accuracy of the copy. At the time the give away was that it didn't sound very good, but I could easily prove it was a fake because the weight wasn't right - photo evidence of the mic on the scales to PayPal got me a refund with no quibbles. The counterfeiters might have changed this since I got mine, but it was a quick and easy way of establishing that it wasn't the real thing.
Absolutely they're good for something.I got sent some fake SM58s the other day. I got my refund very quickly, so no issues there.
What I was wondering is whether these mics are good for anything.
The only difference between a "real" and a "fake" product, when they are all manufactured by the same [cannot say the truth here because TGP mods ban any truth about these particular organizations] is what you pay them to paint or stamp on it.
