The Holy Grail of Acoustic Instrument Mics

Neumann KM86

Up for consideration is a vintage pair of Neumann KM86 multi-pattern 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 20 of these. Also, a well-known Motown engineer is on the net saying that practically ALL of the Motown hits were entirely recorded with their 30 KM86s!!! New, the current Neumann multi-pattern U87 sells for $6,000 a pair, so here is your chance to pick up a better-sounding, vintage KM-86 pair, and save several THOUSAND dollars!

* Polar Patterns: Cardiod, Omni, Fig. 8
* Serial Numbers: 38037, 38042
* Neumann Leather Cases
* Connector: Tuchel
* 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. The mics sound wonderful in all 3 of the patterns. I used it briefly for tracking Classical Harp Guitar, and they sound warm, detailed and very musical. I REALLY HATE to sell these, but must do so to purchase some other equally drool-worthy gear.
