KM84 capsule clicks
Author: Darrick Uwins

Hello. I think i might have a problem with my KM84, although i'm not entirely sure. The microphone works very well in normal recording use...but if i breathe softly up close to it...i'll get random clicks(no dropouts)...or if i tap about six inches down the mic stand from the mic...i get these same clicks. It almost sounds as though the membrane is touching the backplate intermittently. Otherwise, the microphone sounds great and records great with normal use and at normal recording distances(i know it's sensitive to plosives, etc). Can anyone shed some light on if this may be normal behaviour for this mic...i've used it, but i don't have any experience with other km84's for comparison. Thanks.
