Just breezing through craigslist today saw this:

my band is in some need of some mics and i was curious if these ones are worth the money...they are being sold pretty cheap which makes me a little skeptical. not really sure on the actual quality. buy or no?

The mics are Audio Technica DR-VX1.

Cheap mics are only really going to be good for live micing at gigs, where (dare i say it) tone quality isn't as overwhelmingly important as the studio.
