Good to know Klaus and thank you. Would you happen to have a picture of the Beldon you are talking about ? makes me wonder which cable i have for my u67 ?
Here is my cable which reads neumann made in germany on the cable itself.

Yours is the German broadcast cable I had mentioned. Probably made by Gotham/Dörfler, Austria. It's not the Belden material I mentioned in my review.

That makes me sad Klaus :-( Of course I'm always going to wonder what the Belden cable sounds like now lol ?
Is there an easy way to find out exactly which cable this is ? and also the date of my cable ?
Ignorance is bliss in this case because this is the only u67 I've ever had and recorded with.
I just received a telefunken EF806s and this tube is beautiful.
Just for fun I've been comparing it with the telefunken EF86 tubes i have, theres not a tremendous difference, but it feels like the EF806s is slightly smoother.
Ive been searching all over the internet for a picture of a 1963 Belden cable and haven't had any luck at all, would you happen to have a pic laying around ?
Thanks again Klaus.

These are from my u67’s. (1965 and 64).  I believe one is the Belden and one is the Dorfler...  (Neither have any labelling, but the jackets and the shielding fit the description Klaus offered in this thread: https://repforums.prosoundweb.com/index.php/topic,37359.msg538273.html#msg538273

In a day or two, I will upload a picture of the Belden cable originally included in U67 sets sold in teh U.S. in the early to mid 1960s.

I have a 1963 u67 I wonder what happened to my original cable ?
I bet this is the Belden, Just a wild guess

I’m debating if I should trade my u67 swivel mount for a regular Neumann cable ?
Although I love the way the swivel mount looks, i can hear the low end ruble associated with not having a shock mount.
Just got an original z48 and I’m wondering how strange it’s going to look with the swivel mount on the shock mount.

You are actually defeating part of the shock absorption provided by the elastic suspension when you keep the swivel mount connected. The weight of that mount stresses sections of the suspension rubbers and makes it hard to keep the mic centered in the mount.

That makes a lot of sense Klaus, so I guess I should sell this and get a proper cable, I’ve been looking everywhere and haven’t had much luck.

This looks like the original Dorfler without the swivel mount as far as I understand... (Klaus?) If so, it's great cable! Is this yours?

If your cable is from a m269 as Klaus suggest, then that's great wire.  Just buy a female tuchel connector if you really don't want the swivel mount?
In fact, I'm happy to trade you my u67 female tuchel connector for your u67 female swivel mount conector!

Im not sure if my cable fits an m269 ? it came with the u67.
I dont trust my lack of skill to remove the swivel mount and connect something lol
Do you have a picture of your u67 cable ?
