The Holy Grail of Acoustic Instrument Mics

Save $200 From Live.Com -- Close Serial Numbers for Stereo Pair

Neumann KM84

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 gear.
