Neumann KK85 -- NOS
Capsule for KMi Body -- Save
up to 30% From Live.Com
Up for consideration is a NOS Neumann KK85 cardioid
(with acoustic bass roll-off) microphone capsule. This is one
of the 3 interchangable capsules from the Neumann KMi series,
and you will need to have a KM-84 (cardioid), or KM-83 (omni
) or KMi body to complete the microphone. It will also fit the
older Km64 and KM74 bodies. New, the current model AK45 capsule
sells for $805, so here is your chance to pick up a better-sounding,
vintage, unused KK85, and save several hunderd dollars!
* Polar Pattern: Cardioid
* Acoustic bass roll-off
* Serial Number: 5899
* NOS Capsule
* Made in Germany
This unused NOS KM85 capsule originally came from the
Bauch, UK Neumann importer's bankruptcy sale in the1990s. I only
used it briefly for tracking Classical
Harp Guitar, and it sounds amazing for close micing, with
the built-in bass roll-off used to compensate for the proximity
effect. This is a NOS capsule, and sounds so much better than
any 30-year-old KK84 I have ever heard (click here for the MP3 Clip).
I REALLY HATE to sell this, but I must do so to pay for some
other pro audio gear.
