Expand your KM84 or KM83 into a KM85!!!

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.

USA shipping is $7.50 via USPS Priority Mail, with Delivery Confirmation, and optional insurance. All sales are final, so please ask questions first. Guaranteed not to be DOA. I do accept PayPal, Money Orders, Personal Checks. Thanks for looking. This auction is for one Neumann KK85 capsule. No other accessories are included.
