Well, if the question is only in this type of beverages, you are welcome to make sure in every part of the work itself.

Well, I want to know several types of the mentioned work, as well.

Well, I think such type of micro is not a problem to find. But if anybody has stolen it already...

Perfect explanation. Nothing to add.

Maybe Klaus can refine the details, but here’s how I do it in u67’s:
Take a pair of snips and snip the “top left corner” of the s2 jumper.  Bend the newly snipped horizontal piece of the jumper wire up away from the board and affix it to the back of the tube socket with a tiny drop of glue. (So the snipped piece of wire is not loose in there and won’t make contact with anything conductive.)
Then if you want to put it back to stock, you can just bend the jumper back into place and solder the corner that you snipped...

Good Day,

I'm embarrassed to admit that I do not know how to disable the inbuilt HPF in my stock u67/m269 mics.
I have searched for several manuals and while they all make a mention of it, none offer practical steps needed to safely disable the HPF. There are references to "opening s2". In my past experience, a user adjustable feature like this would involved moving a jumper, but from what I can tell this involves either some snipping or de-soldering... and I would HATE to do it incorrectly...

What are the proper, practical steps to disabling the inbuilt HPF on these microphones?

As always,
Thank you!

I think it is good to say that my experience with Schoeps is very good.
Some time ago I had a problem with a microphone and Mr. Schäfer of Schoeps was very helpful and provided all information I needed to solve the problem. Just sayin'...

I am by no means objective or omniscient. I like microphones that bring up a feeling of well-being over microphones that only spec out well. With that in mind, and given no access to any KM54, I would choose a KM84 (modified, of course) or Schoeps CMC5 with MK5 cardioid capsule.

Then there is the KM88- a secret weapon described in detail here: http://germanmasterworks.com/km88.html

I need to mention that I find Schoeps, compared to Neumann, not an easy company to deal with, when things go wrong with any of their mics, .

I've spent a good amount of time over the past couple of days, trying to learn more about the Soyuz 013 tube condenser.
I've only seen one or two serious reviews of these mics (I just read the one in Sound On Sound, by Hugh Robjohns: https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/soyuz-su-013).

Thinking about writing this post, and wanting to abide by Klaus' preferences, I quickly came to the conclusion that my pursuit of a contemporary small capsule tube condenser with particular sonic characteristics is a somewhat universal pursuit for those of us who care about such things.

We all have different experiences with different mics. For me, if budget was no issue, I'd like to have at least three vintage Neumann KM-54s. I just love the way they sound/perform, in a number of settings, especially percussion and steel-stringed instruments. There's just something about the way this mic handles midrange and high frequencies.
I know there are people on this forum who could expand on the science implied by my simple statement!

Be that as it may, the pragmatic question I have is: Does anyone on this forum both have ears-on experience with KM54s, and if you do, can you recommend any contemporary small capsule tube condensers that kind of sound like a KM54? The closer in sound, the better, as far as I'm concerned.

Did Martin divulge anything of interest about the tensioning / low end issues regarding k67/870 capsule production?
