Converting Neumann KM 56a to KM 56aC?
« on: May 10, 2011, 11:17:28 am »

I have a nice pair of these mics, but they were built before the 'c' biasing came into being.

I'm wondering how difficult it would be to do the conversion.  Also, I couldn't find a schematic online with step-by-step instructions for how to do this.  Does anyone (Klaus?) have this information?

Thanks in advance!

Any competent mic tech can do it.  It's not that difficult.  If you can't find a schematic, look at some M49 and M49c schematics to see how the self biasing cathode is implemented.
