I have been having mixed feelings about the NF's -- like 'em some days, don't on others. I played this McCarty 58 today, and it is marked down from 3.6k to 2.6k, so I thought about trading in mine (with a big hit of course). The 57/08's in this one sound pretty nice, and it has some additional pretty detail work - it's also in better shape then mine, which I bough used, and has few dings.
Just kind of playing with the idea, haven't gotten serious yet. But I did dig the sound of those 57s.
Just for fun, I played this private reserve as well:
Price slashed by 40%:
I have trouble getting good close-ups with my iphone indoors-- sorry for the blur.
