While trying to track down some 30 year old Telefunken parts, I stumbled across a German pro audio site. In addition to the Neumann and Brauner mics, they also offered a brand I have never heard of here in the US - Horch. They only seem to offer one model the Horch RM2, and its priced up in Brauner territory - +/- $3grand or so. Anybody ever seen or heard one of these things?

never heard of Horch, but if your still looking for Telefunken /TAB/Siemens parts, I know of a guy who worked at Telefunken for 16 years under the man that designed the V72, To make a long story short, When Telefunken closed it's audio division in the early/mid eighties, he took all of the spare/surplus parts from the warehouse!He is now in the states- he has reworked alot of my gear- his work is impeccable! I sent him a pair of TAB U373a's that had some problems and he sent them back full of "new" original parts! He also put them in a rack with a few with a few mods done to them(threshold knob, 50 % more threshold switch, gain -5dB and +5dB knob and a link switch that is perfectly matched. These units are the holygrail AFAIC, He calls them a German Fairchild. These are not stock u373's he has also modded the Knee to be much more gradual :D
If your still looking for Telefunken parts lemme know-Mike

Thanks guys. Mike, I'm assuming that you were talking about the same guy, Oliver at TAB-Funk. I hooked up with him the same day I made the post at the beginning of this thread. He was able to send me scans of the manual for the old Telefunken EQ that I just purchased - great guy!

Yeah, Oliver Rocks!
I'm a huge fan of his work.
Hopefully we can get him here to chicago to rework the monitor section of our J37's.
:D
