Large-diaphragm mic with neutral sound characteristics

  • Neumann's last classically designed studio microphone with output transformer
  • similarly proportioned, smaller housing than the U87
  • newly developed capsule (K89), which was later also used in other models (TLM170, TLM193)
  • circuit design strongly based on that of the U47 fet
  • 5 directional characteristics (omni, cardioid, wide cardioid, hypercardioid, figure-8)
  • pad (-6 dB) and bass roll-off (80/160 Hz) switchable
  • tolerates very high sound pressure levels (134 resp. 140 dB)
  • largely linear frequency response with a wide cut of 2 dB in the presence range, which is typical for this capsule
  • exact matched pair/perfect for stereo applications
  • manufacturing period: since 1979

Favourite applications: specialist for brass instruments. Also suitable for speech, high strings as well as for female voices, which tend to sharpness in the upper mids
