Anyone who sells Neumann mics professionally without disclosing that the original capsule- the core of any Neumann mic, and the main reason for its reputation as industry leader- has been removed, or partially replaced and reinstalled with aftermarket parts does not deserve Reverb's protection in such sale. The (professional) seller not knowing is no excuse. Gross Negligence is the term.

Contact Reverb again, bump it up to management, support your claim with photos, and submit Neumann's letter verifying that an unsuitable capsule was installed.

As to a Chinese capsule being acceptable in a Neumann mic: Never. At least not until buyers are comfortable with a Chevy engine in a Ferrari bought at full price.
