Neumann KM84

Serviced By Bill Bradley of The Mic Shop

Up for consideration is a vintage Neumann KM84 condenser microphone. This is the early version without the -10db pad switch, and most likely uses the BV 10 transformer, which was also used in the KM54 and SM2. It was serviced earlier this year by Bill Bradley (for $175 + $25 for shipping), and it performs completely up to spec. 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 have a total of 24! New, the current model KM 140 sells for $1,249, so here is your chance to pick up a better-sounding, vintage KM84 for just $725, and save several hundred dollars!

* Polar Pattern: Cardioid
* Serial Number: 2055
* Made Jan. 16, 1968
* Connector: XLR
* 48 V Phantom Power
* Made in Germany

This mic is in good condition for 40 years of use, with minor scratches from normal use. Somebody has engraved " DBT 737 on the bottom ring, and the amp housing has one small dent inthe side. The grill has a bent bar wich makes exchanginging capsules more difficult, but the original KK84 capsule is properly mounted, and the mic sounds wonderful. A vintage mic purchase is usually a big question mark as to the condition of the mic, but here you can rest assured that the mic has been professionally serviced is performing up to spec and should give you several more decades of reliable performance. I used it briefly for tracking Classical Harp Guitar, and it sounds fantastic. I REALLY HATE to sell it, but must do so to purchase some other drool-worthy gear.
