Is this an original KK87-capsule from 1968?
« on: February 01, 2022, 06:19:39 PM »

Posted this very same question over at GS:

Considering a vintage U87 from 1968 and was wondering about the capsule. The white plastic ring looks surprisingly "white" and there is no handwritten figures in black ink which I noticed most of the original KK87 capsules have. Usually the plastic ring is quite yellow as well.

So could this really be the original 1968 capsule that originally came with the mic??

The owner says it's the original capsule...though there seems to be no info if it's been reskinned or not. It supposed to have been serviced around 15 years ago by the "go to German service guy" but he does not remember exactly who.



Regards,

Sorry, you may delete this post in that case. I'll continue on the GS thread instead.
