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.
