Title: CMV3 questions
Post by: Fern on May 09, 2012, 11:06:43 am
I'm about to post this mic on EBay.  I'm gonna get a ton of questions I can't answer.  Anybody want to take a stab at this BLUE refurbished mic?  I'll ask Skipper if I need to but it's fun talking to you guys.

My questions:

1)  I'm uncertain regarding the history of the CMV3.  When Googling, one comes across two models.  The one with the lollipop head and the one with "built-in" mount with a screw-in capsule.  I've got the "built-in" mount screw-in capsule type.  What is the history (brief) between the two models?

2)  What kind of tube do I have in mine?  The tube has an "HW" logo on one side with "MSC2" beneath the logo and has "134/13" on the other.

Thanks!!

It's a Hiller MSC2, (one of) the first minature tube(s), constructed specially for Neumann condenser mic's.

Sorry for the delay in response.

It is an MV 750.

I have now sold this mic and the help here is invaluable.  Thanks to all of you for your replies!
