    • Neumann KM 184 (x5) ni

      Neumann KM 184

      The KM 184 has a gentle rise at about 9 kHz, a characteristic that was introduced very successfully with the KM 140. The result is a tonal balance that is fresher and livelier when compared to the KM 84 with its flat frequency response in that band.

    • Neumann KM 84i (x3)

      Neumann KM 84i

      The KM 84i is a small-diaphragm FET condenser with a fixed Cardioid pickup pattern. It was the world’s first phantom-powered microphone, built to run on 48v DC. Its design goal was to be as small as possible; the model name ‘KM’ stands for Kleine Mikrofon (“small microphone”). Although discontinued in 1992, the KM-84i remains a favorite of vintage mic enthusiasts for drum overheads and hi-hat applications.
