I let my question ramble on the above post, Sorry. What I wanted to know was if, at the point in time when the KMA and SWA were current products, there were other microphone options besides the KMA to use with the SWA?
BTW - On inspection of the capsule of the KMA, the membrane appears to be metal (Ni?) rather than the Gold/Mylar of the KK84/85 capsules. Do you know the history of these capsules or if they were ever used for other Neumann microphones.
