$200 From Live.Com -- Close Serial Numbers for Stereo Pair
Up for consideration is a vintage pair of Neumann KM84
cardioid condenser microphones. These mics are highly coveted
for acoustic instruments, especially guitar, and overheads. You
will find these mics in widespread use in all the great recording
studios, like Abbey
Road, where they still have a total of 22 of these. New,
the current model Neumann KM-140 sells for $2,623 a pair, so
here is your chance to pick up a better-sounding, vintage, collectable
KM-84 pair, and save several hundred dollars!
* Polar Pattern: Cardiod
* Body Serials: 34024, 38014
* Capsule Serials: 8 613, 8 638
* Neumann Leather Cases
* Connector: Tuchel/DIN
* Tuchel-XLR Cables
* 48 V Phantom Power
* Made in Germany
These mics is in very good condition for 30+ or so years
of service, with just minor scratches from normal use on one
of the mics, while the other has quite a bit of paint wear --
but it was probably the one that always got used for takes in
mono. These mics sound wonderful, and here
is a clip of a Collings acoustic from mic #34024, run through
a Gordon pre and a Lavry D/A with no EQ (MP3).
I used them briefly for tracking Classical
Harp Guitar, and they sound warm, detailed and very musical.
I REALLY HATE to sell this, but must do so to purchase some other
