Neumann K67?
« on: December 17, 2017, 01:41:41 pm »

Hi.
Do you think this capsule is an authentic Neumann K67?
If so, does the appearance look good?

I'm looking for one for a Neumann U77 and this looks like a good candidate.

Thanks for each one of your collaborations!

The picture shows a genuine Neumann capsule in rather contaminated condition. But it cannot be judged from the picture whether it's a K67 or K87.

How do you determine a vintage k67 from a k87.  Im always looking at the screw holes and still haven't figured it out.

Nothing about screw holes. You can tell only by looking at a close-up photo of the backplate sandwich: is an aluminum spacer (ca. 40µ) separating the two backplate halves (= K67/870) or a plastic spacer of the same thickness (= K87)?

If you have the capsule in your physical possession, it's even easier to tell: unscrew one of the four screws that hold the two capsule halves together: if there is a clear plastic sleeve over the threads of the screws, it identifies a K87, if just a plain screw with no sleeve, it's a K67/870.
