Yes, but not out of the box - you'll need to desolder the cable and remove the 5-pin XLR insert and resolder with a 7-pin insert and tube mic cable.

I'm pretty sure I linked to the 7 Pin version. I was just curious if any one had ordered it and used it without any issues.

No, you asked about and linked to the Neumann ic6/25 which is a 5-pin xlr cable hence my answer.

I didn’t realize that was a five pin. The description on the website is pretty non existent too.

haha all good!

I will add that I soldered a pair ic3s a while back for use in the max mod mics and they work great.

I have vintage u67s and the max mod is on the same level. Great when you need a thick tone!

Can someone tell me where I can buy one of these? I can't find the website anywhere.

One of the MK67 kits? There is no website.
Just send Max an email. Adresse should be in the very first post of this thread.

Did you actually swap out the the stock IC4 cabling when you modded the swivel mount?

The connection block from the AF7 is an exact swap for the one that comes fitted in the XLR swivels from Neumann, so once you take the swivel apart you just need to resolder and reassemble with the 7-pin socket block in place of the 3-pin one.

IIRC, no I didn't. Although there is no reason why that couldn't also be done, assuming you have some suitable cable to replace it with...

Thank you all for your orders, this batch is now sold out.

If you have the Neumann U67 RI stock cable would it be plug and play (no soldering) to pull its XLR insert out of the jacket and swap it into the swivel mount jacket?

Is the MK67 Kit compatible with the U67

Does anyone know if the Mk67 guts are compatible with the reissue 67?

I have a new U67 and an older DIY 67 (Dany 'poctop' Bouchard's pcb, Max's transformer, Neumann capsule, Chinese body).

My old DU67 seems to have a problem, as the high-end feedback network no longer seems to be working (sounds more like my C800G now).

But I think I prefer the darker smoother tone of the my DU67 to the new 67 reissue. Given the fact that the MK67 is basically has the same components as my older DIY 67, I figure I may just purchase a MK67 kit for my new 67.

I'm just looking for the cheapest way to get that MK67 sound back. (I had 2 87's but sold them a while ago).

I'll swap my u87ai for your u67 reissue if that helps you.

I am sure that this is the case - that the electronics are interchangeable.

Haha! I thought about offering that, too! But then again, I am pretty fine with the MK67 in reissue mode. And being able to use the U87Ai innards in case a client absolutely demands a U87 is valuable, too.

This Sounds like a cap is crapping out or a solder joint has gone Bad or something minor like that...
Maybe it's worth to check through the pcb with a DMM!

Yeah, just get it repaired. Could be something very simple. But even if it costs a couple of bucks, it's totally worth it.

Yes, the capsule head, body tube and screw cap are compatible TLM67, U87Ai, 67 original and reissue.
Working on the next batch during lockdown#2 - will be available early 2021.
