the microphone sale, new and improved

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009 | by

you have to spend money to save money eh?Thirty days ago I announced a major new feature for this website — a comparison-shopping engine for microphones. It has grown up a lot in the past 30 days, and at the moment some pretty amazing deals on microphones are about one click away.

The price-tracking system launched with one or two sellers. Now it’s up to seven. Total inventory — meaning the number of SKUs tracked — has grown 5x, to over 1000.

None of that means a lot to anybody if the deals are hard to find. So, I just updated a feature that I think will make the deals more obvious.

The microphone sale page has a list of mics whose price has recently dropped. This feature got a little smarter tonight. I’d tell you more about it, but OMG a Blue Bottle Rocket Stage One for $499?!

This listing turned up a blowout of “B-stock” mics at one of the sellers. Which is exactly the sort of thing it’s supposed to do — highlight the great deals on mics from all around the web.

Excuse me now; I have to go buy $1000 worth of microphones…

    Hi Matthew,

    I’ve followed the blog for a while now – thanks for all of your time put into this site – this newest feature is going to KILL my wallet but is also amazing.
