Text from eBay listing:
My name is Phil Thomas organiser of the Bobby Bragg Celebrity Golf Day & I am offering a truly unique opportunity to obtain a piece of rock history to any Pink Floyd fans.
Our friend Gareth Williams was Pink Floyds monitor engineer at this years live 8 concert in London’s Hyde Park in July, following Floyds sensational performance Gareth aquired David Gilmore’s microphone from Mark Saunders of Sannheiser UK on behalf of our great friends Fairport Convention who then donated it to the Bobby Bragg Celebrity Golf Day in aid of The Teenage Cancer Trust.
When Mark found out , he generously donated Roger Walter’s microphone as well.
The two Neumann KMS 105 microphones were used only once by David Gilmore and Roger Walters of Pink Floyd at The live 8 concert in Hide Park. Footage of David & Roger during the concert is also included on DVD. Both mic’s have their names on gaffer tape and come complete with cases and clips. Both have a certificate of authentication.
Our sincere thanks go to Gareth Williams, Mark Saunders and Fairport Convention.
EVERY PENNY RAISED I GAURANTEE WILL BE DONATED TO TEENAGE CANCER TRUST
