Response to Re: Type 18 news
Thanks for your enquiry, but please don't worry there is no intention of devaluing the originals.I am pretty sure I said in an earlier thread that there will be enough suttle differences to tell the two apart, it will take a lot of work to make one of ours to look 100% genuine. We don't really want to indulge in giving too much away as we don't want certain info getting into the wrong hands, but be rest assured there will be differences. Obviously one item will be the resin cast bakelite parts,there will be other small changes that wont be so obvious but they will be included. So I can honestly say that these will not affect the value of the originals, bit like buying a repro Mae West, or a repro D type or even a repro B type, none of these have had any effect on the originals. We do understand your concerns though Alex , and we are glad that this point has been highlighted , We have in the past seen dealers fooled by fake so called originals but I'm afraid thats the world we live in, not very nice we know , we just have to be on our guard, have some knowledge of what we're buying, do our homework and if in doubt ask some who does know. As for whats under the cap ? well we have a couple of options on this , we can either fit a customer supplied mic internals, or we can reproduce it to look like its fitted with internals. There is another option of making the cap and the mic housing in one piece , this would make it more difficult to fake into looking original plus it would might reduce the overall price. I think we might end up having to offer all three options. Hope this helps, all the best Tony Tally-ho!
