Re: KM 56 power supply and other concerns

Hi,

Sorry to add to an old thread, but I couldn't figure out where to start a new question..

I also own a KM56, just recently acquired (in unknown condition).

I tested it on a friends original Neumann supply, which he uses for his KM54 mic's (with KM64 capsules).

Compared to his KM mic, mine has considerably lower output (probably configured for 50 ohms output, I suspect) but also quite poor bass response.

Other than that the sound was ok, with no pops or clicks etc.
But I wonder, is the poor bass response (not much maybe below 500 hz or so?) likely due to old capacitors etc in the circuit, or perhaps more likely condition of capsule?
(My fingers are crossed it's not that latter, but I understand it is quite a risk with such an old nickel capsule/s).

Thanks in advance,
Evan
