Neumann Tube Techs?

    Hey all, I work at a studio in Seattle and we have a handful of old Neumann tube mics that need some work done on them. We do have some Klaus modded microphones, but the last time we contacted him he said that we were not on his waiting list ): anyone know of any other reputable mic techs around the NW? Thanks

    He's the best. If you own some of his mods I cant imagine that you arent a preferred customer. Call him again and if he cant fit you in ask for his recommendation for a tech.

    A misunderstanding (and misrepresentation) of gigantic proportions. I do not recall ever having been contacted by an owner of a modified mic and giving such response.

    It would also be contrary to my long-time iron rule: any mic with my name tag ('Modified by Klaus Heyne') automatically goes to the front of the line for servicing. Not treating preferentially those who believe in what I do, and who have spent good money for it would be suicidal for a guy whose only coin is his name.

    "Drewslum": please contact me privately at: klausheyne at yahoo dot com.
    Thanks,
    KH

    There you have it. As I thought.

    Hi Drew, you could send them up to me at aamicrophones@gmail.com.

    We have been servicing all kinds of vintage microphones over 40 years as well as having our own microphones built.

    However, I do not have any VF14 tubes if you have a original U47 and want to keep it stock if the VF14 has failed.

    We are 4 hours east of Seattle by car just above Omak Washington in Summerland, BC.

    Cheers, Dave

    No issues with sending a mic that has my custom modification sticker to another vendor for repair. Competition is always good!

    Just keep in mind that at that point I can no longer honour any good-will warranties or perform services free of charge or at a reduced rate (which is usually the case when revisiting previously serviced/modified mics.)

    Once another service provider has worked on any of these mics, I will kindly ask the repair vendor or owner to remove the original sticker, as the mic at that point loses its original certification.

    Thanks for understanding,
    Klaus Heyne
