Has anyone received any genuine gear that comes with extra stuff? My SM57 came with a free cable and some other stuff, and it was faker than playboy tits.

Just had a thought there might be something in that.

The mic was a fake? Or the other stuff it came with?

As far as I know it all was. The mic definitely was though.

It never worked. Wires were twisted up and broken inside. I've tried to fix it but they're just too short to work with. It was just some random Ebay store. Didn't pay too much attention. I didn't try to use it for a long time, so by the time I realized what was up it was too late to take any real action.

+311

there is no way there weren't any trimpots inside there.

turtle - just man up and either say you did see them or say you have no idea in hell what they looked like.

or just quit whining and move on.
