SOLD-Neumann KK83 Microphone Capsule - Turn Your KM84 into an Omni KM83

Post by nob turner » Sun Sep 24, 2017 11:51 pm

SOLD!! here is a mint-condition Neumann KK83 capsule. This is the omnidirectional version of the KK84 capsule, which is the stock cap on the great old KM84 microphone.

It is in perfect shape, physically and sonically. It comes in its original jeweler's case, looking much like a wedding ring when closed. The serial number is the same on the case as on the capsule. It sits on a plastic mount when boxed.

Unscrew the existing capsule from your KM84 or KM85 (low-rolloff cardioid) microphone and replace it with this, and you have a completely stock Neumann KM83. Omni's are great for getting in close to the source without low-frequency build up, as well as for capturing the natural ambience around an instrument. This is particularly useful when recording something like acoustic guitar, where the proximity effect can make placement tricky. For example, you can put your KM83 in front of the sound hole of a guitar without getting the woofy, tubby sound you've probably experienced.

These are extremely rare. In this condition, I daresay they're akin to hen's teeth in that respect. For a larger version these photos, click on any of them.

$500. I cover PayPal fees, you pay actual shipping costs. Local pickup in San Francisco is welcome. No trades, thanks.
