Tuchel* connector, XLR adapter cable included.
The Neumann KM84 microphone is a small capsule cardioid condenser and was the first mic made with 48v phantom power technology. The KM is German for Kleine Microphone (small microphone) and all the electronics were deliberately made quite small so that the mic could be made with a diameter of only 21 mm and a length of 110 mm. It has a 10 dB attenuation switch allowing the microphone to be used up close with loud instruments and by placing the pad at the gate of the field-effect transistor (FET), this "pre-attenuation" prevents the hot capsule signal from overloading the front end of the amplifier enabling the mic to handle up to 130db without distortion. The Neumann KM84 has become a real favourite for classical music recording because of its smooth faithful reproduction but its also known as a favourite mic for drum overheads. The mic is very sensitive to low-frequency mechanical vibrations so you need to be careful where you stand it and really it needs a good pop shield as its also pretty susceptible to wind noise but these are small considerations balanced against the quality of the mic.
*Tuchel is a brand name, like Neutrik or RCA. Tuchel was the premier supplier of connectors for German mic companies from the '50s to the '80s, until these connectors were phased out as XLR became the worldwide standard.
