The workhorse

  • at that time commercially highly successful small diaphragm microphone that has been regularly used in numerous professional recording studios for decades now
  • single diaphragm cardioid capsule - it's the same capsule (with polyester diaphragm) as its tube predecessor, the KM64
  • uncoloured off-axis response
  • very versatile because of its flat frequency response and the pleasant top end
  • the transformerless successors KM140 and KM184 sound slightly different (less bass, more treble), so they could not replace the KM84
  • manufacturing period: 1966-1992

Favourite applications: for a long time professional standard for the hihat. It is also often used for overhead and snare. Furthermore it's very suitable for the recording of violin, acoustic guitar and piano
