I used two of the four KM84s that Tom Onofrio refurbished recently on an 80-piece concert band recording. He put in new capacitors and removed some resistors. Now the mics have about 6 dB more gain, and sound both clearer and richer. It cost me $1120.00 for the four (the capsules were fine). I'm pleased-money well spent. Tom was also very easy to work with. He is permanently in my contacts app.

I also got the Shapeways 3D-printed ORTF mic holder for the KM84s with the Shure shockmount. It works great and saves time in set up. A great addition!

Thanks to all for the very appreciated advice!

Tempted to buy a U87 on Ebay and then send it to Tom to review and make sure it's working properly

Tom serviced my beautiful U67 and brought it back to factory fresh condition. His prices are reasonable and turnaround was 1 week.

Just one more endorsement for Tom. Sent my '77 U87 in for repair and got it back in a week sounding the best it's ever sounded. Quick turnaround, fair pricing, and competency. That's a winning combination!

Thanks, Tom!

Cheers,

Props to Tom Onofrio!

I want to give my best endorsement of Tom Onofrio @ Microphone Repair ... I had Tom go through 2 Neumann KM84's & he did a fabulous job! New KK84 capsules, caps replaced & tested. Turnaround was very swift & smooth. I now have like-new performing KM84's! Courteous, communicative, competent & cool ... what more could you ask for? Highly recommend ;-)
