so i went last week to the "Horch" manufacturer in Munich. I think there is some kind of news about the microphones. They build the "Horch" microphones for 8 years i think and now after a bad court call they do not have permission to sell these awesome mics under the name of Horch.
They now calling the mics "Analog Microphones".
The RM2J is now called AM2 and is delivered with a diamond.
The RM3 is now called AM3 and doesn't change.
The RM4 is dicontinued, it can't say anything about that, because i do not know it.
The AM5 will be a transistor mic
And the AM6 will be the AM2 capsule in a AM3 body.
I know the name is not that great, but the new logo is fine for me. The design doesn't change, which is good because i really fell in love with the RM3, now AM3.
The guys let me borrowing their mics for quite a while now and i love it for vocals in my mixes. Cello sessions, which i did last week were great, too (AM3).
The new batch of "Analog Microphones" will arrive in mid october and i am very exited to post this as one of the first
Til end of the year they will construct a few new mics. The AM5 will be a transistor(!) mic with the K67 capsule.
And the AM6 it is the K47 capsule in the AM3 body (which will be my new mic in november
So i got the permission to take a photo from the first AM3s they build and here it is (maybe some of will find it interesting, take a look at the unique capsule mounting). If any news come in i will post it here, if you are interested.
