Neumann M 49: Is this a fake?
« on: October 22, 2019, 01:12:34 pm »

Hallo everybody,
i was offered this mic and the circumstances all sound very mysterious and too good-story-like ("mic comes from an old man who took care for 50 years etc.").
Unfortunately i'm not a super expert so i ask the community here:
Is this real or is it a fake?
Greetings from Munich!

Mic looks very chromey!
That, and the two slot screws on the back would make me suspicious, too.

But substantial info about this mic (and its aftermarket power supply) can only be had by a further look inside: amp and capsule type will tell how much of this, if any, is genuine Neumann.
