BPM StudioTechnik CR-73II
This is a large diaphragm condenser microphone with omni and cardio and attenuator pad. It is oriented voice and instrument making. BPM does distributes more appears, from the manufacturer of the former East Germany couraging trs microphones close to Neumann.
I possde decade, it ages well, it's tough, only the suspension is Indig (RDA design!)


It is trs prcis the acute and medium, ideal on the guitar, drums and voice, he captures everything with nuance, it is more surgical than 414 C (less flattering, less warm). In the era I could not compare, there were no Chinese REFERENCE: AT c'tait 3033 (less) or AKG BPM (+ high) and Neumann (+ + + + expensive).
The report quality price ten years ago silent correct, but it does not bneficiait current competition. With the experience I would do this choice, even if it silent I pair it well distributed ERRF a twin to the stro.

C'tait micro ftiche yan tiersen on these early albums, two associated Oktava two NT5 184 KM or two you can do everything in gear noise.

Many "sellers tips" Pigalle or magazine tapped his home studio or dvalorise, it should not be relied upon, in both cases there is no interest extol the m REFERENCE rite of which are not distributing and a manufacturer that is not advertising in the mag!

The pros: quality reproduction, versatility, omni mode, solid close on a good U47 pramp.

The -: accessories distributed over quality and design GDR

BPM StudioTechnik CR-73II
New generation CR-73II
Large capsule condenser microphone transistor.
Directional 3: cardio, 8, omni.
-10 Db attenuator.
Cut down.
Everything is there. No compromise.
Micro German, German-made (?)

Compared to the photo, mine at a different grid, more classical.


I just got it and I could use it. The result is so clear that one should not take weeks to get an opinion: it's all good. This mic gives me satisfaction.
No correction to be made on the different decision I could do! (Voice men and acoustic guitars, folk, nylon, 12 strings). Omni and cardio.
Present in the lower midrange, smooth the top of the spectrum (not aggressive). A very good overall balance.

An "affiliation" seems to exist between BPM and Neumann. I am not able to compare, but it is true that some common color emerges. In any case, this microphone gives an impression of quality that can work sereinenment.

The CR-73II is a "new" by BPM, which indicates that it now replaces the CR-95 (and perhaps even the CR-10S). This new model has been improved compared to the CR-95, dixit the manufacturer.

So much for the compliments.

The most difficult aspect is the distribution of the brand, and therefore the purchase.
To get there, I had to order directly from the manufacturer in Germany. No choice. First contact via their website (Soviet age!). Following is a bit long to detail here, but if there are curious, we can discuss on the forum for example.

And the price: 406 € freight included (Germany / France).

BPM StudioTechnik CR-73II
Beau microphone, he weighs quite heavy, with -10 dB, switch to the directivity ...


Very good mic sound great pity he is no longer manufactured there was no blushing face with a grain neuman some very pleasant especially on vocals, acoustic guitars ... with enough surgical cot, very precise but not necessarily flattering ... it seems to me well over a 103 by tlm exple in terms of grain and precision compared to the situations I have come across ..
