VINTAGE Neumann KMi Body

Body for KK-83, KK-84, KK-85 Capsules,1977

Holy Grail of Acoustic Guitar Mics

Neumann KMi

Up for consideration is a vintage 1977 Neumann KMi body for KM-83, KM-84, and KM-85 microphones. This auction is the body only -- which is no longer in production. You will need to have a KK-83 (omni), KK-84 (cardioid), or KK-85 (speech cardioid) capsule to complete the microphone. The capsules are still available new from Senheiser USA Spare Parts at 1-860-434-9190, ext. #135, for about $600. 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 100F body sells for $589, so here is your chance to pick up a rare, vintage KMi specimen, and not even have to pay a premium!

* Serial # 29395
* Manufactured: 5.1.1977
* Connector: XLR
* Phantom Power: 48V
* Introduced in 1966

This mic is in fine condition. I got it as a KM-83 earlier this year for tracking Classical Harp Guitar, and since I have 2 other KM-84s, I really only needed the omni capsule. I compared the sound to my other KMi body which has recently been serviced, and the sound was 100% identical.

USA shipping is $7.50 via USPS Priority Mail, with Delivery Confirmation, and add the appropriate optional insurance: DOMESTIC | INTERNATIONAL. Please ask about the cheaper USPS First Class International Shipping. 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 1 Neuman MKI microphone body. No capsules or other accessories are included.
