The Neumann KK 14 Cardioid Capsule for MCM Microphone System is part of the modular Miniature Clip Mic (MCM) system designed for universal instrument close-miking applications including solo instrumentalists, big band and brass sections, and amplified orchestras in live applications. Elevating electret technology to Neumann standards, it delivers a staggering 153 dB maximum SPL to capture the details of both loud and very-soft instruments without adding distortion or self-noise. The KK 14 is encapsulated in a lightweight titanium housing to ensure stability and a long service life on the road. Assembled in Germany by hand to align with Neumann's high standards, the capsule delivers first-rate tonal consistency plus that Neumann aesthetics and handling.

KK 14 Capsule with Exceptional SPL Handling & Ultrawide Dynamic Range

The KK 14 features a 12mm diameter (small-diaphragm) electret-condenser element that delivers a truly natural, neutral, and reliable sound even in challenging technical or acoustic situations. The capsule features a cardioid polar pattern that helps minimize the pickup of bleed from other instruments or stage noise, while allowing greater gain before feedback. Capable of handling an extremely high 153 dB maximum SPL with an ultrawide 130 dB dynamic range, the KK 14 is deal for close-miking virtually any instrument, from bombastic drums to delicate strings.

Wide Variety of Mounting Options

The miniature capsule easily mounts on the SH 150 MCM gooseneck (available separately) so it can be reliably and accurately positioned over your instrument for optimal sound capture. Nine instrument-specific mounting clips are available for attaching the gooseneck to a wide variety of instruments including guitar, violin, cello, double bass, piano, drums, brass, woodwinds, and more.

Flexible Connectivity for Wired and Wireless Applications

Because it uses electret-condenser technology, the KK 14 can run on either +48V phantom power from a traditional mic preamp or plug-in power from a compatible wireless transmitter. With its locking 3.5mm termination, the AC 31 cable (available separately) can be used to connect the KK 14 to the MCM 100 output stage module (available separately) for plugging the mic into a mixing board via XLR. The AC 31 cable can also be used to connect the capsule to a wireless transmitter with Sennheiser-compatible mic-input jack. Neumann offers three more cables to work with other popular wireless transmitters including Lectrosonics, Shure, Zaxcom, Wisycom, and others.
