SDC-84 Stereo Pair
The SDC-84 is our hand-built recreation of the Neumann KM84. This set includes two carefully matched microphones, two shockmounts, spare O-rings, and a hard case as pictured here.
This set includes matched Cardioid capsules. The capsules are detachable and interchangeable with our Omni and Hypercardioid capsules, which can be purchased separately; see the SDC Capsules page. Additional capsules purchased with this microphone set will include a small plastic storage box that fits into the mic case.
(If you'd prefer to buy this mic pair with Hyper or Omni capsules instead of Cardioid, let us know via email after placing the order, and we'll swap them.)
The DIY kit version of this product can be purchased here.
Four of us spent 10 hours auditioning them. We agreed that we liked them BETTER than our last encounter with actual KM84s. The SDC-84s have a smoother, sweeter top and minimal proximity effect. They are better than the real deal!

The Platinum Edition microphones are available exclusively from MicParts. These mics contain upgrades throughout the signal path, including some "unobtanium" components (e.g. military surplus input coupling capacitors that are revered for their transparency in audio applications, which is why they cost $60 apiece).
The standard edition has been a best-seller since we introduced it, and contains no shortcuts or compromises. The Platinum edition upgrades most of the components in the audio signal path, and most of the resistors, and most of the noise filter capacitors.
