Neumann has always made some pretty good mics and they always get pretty good reviews from their customers. Most of the issues with mics are that they jut flat out are too expensive. Especially if you just want to get some good quality you will have to pay or it which is the reason that most people get held back because they cant afford it. Well Neumann KM 184 could be a solution to you have some great records from home. The KM 184 sounds amazing with an acoustic guitar and even some woodwind instruments. I did some work with a local band and I need to mic them up to record and we got into the discussion on some mics and other equipment. They actually recommended that I get the KM 184 for my acoustic recording, and that’s how I first heard about this mic, though I have been using Neumann for years now for some reason I didn’t have my sites set on this mic because I didn’t even know that it came out. But once I got word on it, then heard them recording with it, I knew that I had to have it. For some reason I though it was going to be out of my budget. It actually was perfect for my budget. So perfect I ordered to of them (they came together in a carrying case ).


My next experiment with the KM 184 by Neumann will be to try to use them on some drums and see how they respond. Maybe on a kick drum and a punchy snare jus to see how they respond and then I will make a decision from there if I want to use them for more than what I already am. The KM 184 is a great mic and at a low cost.
