The miniature condenser microphones KM 64 and U 64 are the latest NEUMANN condenser microphones. They differ from the well known standard range of miniature microphones in the shape of the microphone head. The directional characteristic is cardioid. Special features of these microphones are the independance of the directional characteristic from frequency and a response extended to the high frequency end. The miniature construction makes them particularly suitable for unobtrusive use in film and television studios. BASIC FEATURES The microphones are equipped with a newly developed capsule which is a pressure gradient transducer with an acoustical phase shift element. The diaphragm is made of temperature stable polyester. It is vacuum gold plated. The frequency response of the microphones extends from 40 cps to 18 kcps. A slight drop at 40 cps compensates for the bass rise at close range typical for all pressure gradient microphones. At the high frequency end,the response shows a rise of approximately 2 dB.

With more gain and more reduction at the transformer, do you notice any change in the sound other than tone? Maybe more (or less) 'punch' or some other aspect of the dynamics? Your mic sounds intriguing, I'd like to hear it. Does it sound anything like the Neumann KM64?
