Not yet – will update here when the boards arrive. Should be any day now.

Boards are done with Eurocircuits. Very high quality, european made. Worth the wait!

Sounds like there might be enough interest for a possible 2nd run for those of us who missed this one.

ORIGINAL HAUFE BV107 Group Buy

Hey guys,

since I'm from Germany and also bought 2 of the mic body kits, I checked directly with HAUFE who made the original BV107 transformer for the KM84 and asked if they could make it available again.
I just heard back from them and they are checking with their engineers. But I was also asked how many I need and I'm pretty sure the chances are better if it's more than the 2 trannys I need for my builds  ;D

I'm now waiting on their reply with an estimated price - I also asked them what the price would be for 10+ and for 20+ of the trannys...who would join me?

morbleu

I'm already in the group buy for the cinemags but would be definitely interested in a pair of Haufe.

Really !? That’s amazing.
When I write them a month ago, they told me, that they don’t produce them anymore.

What they wrote me is (kind of): "These transformers haven't been produced since 2001 and we have to check our manufacturing options. How many would you need?"

So I replied that I will ask around but that I'm pretty positive that we would reach 10+ or even 20+ pieces... ;)

Morning guys!

re: the Haufes.

I couldn't say what dimensions those transformers  going to be, but the space in the PCB was specifically for the Cinemag sizing so odds are they won't fit. Certainly if they're the dimensions of the originals. That said, it'd certainly be exciting to hear these kits with an "original" tranny in it, so maybe if it doesn't fit the current cutout the board could be jiggled around to fit the other transformer in a future kit.

Depends on a few things, of course, interest being the main thing. :)

Good news everybody,

I just talked to someone from Haufe and indeed they  CAN DO a reissue of the original BV107 transformer for us!!
I'll get a quote later today or Monday.

Looking at the pcb layout - even if the original tranny doesn't fit the board it should be easy to modify the pcb to make it all fit into the body tube.
But of course for future versions it would be cool to have the original trannys fit without modding :)

stay tuned

Ok, I already received the quote :)

if we buy up to 10 pcs. they will be EUR 85.00 ea.
11-20 pcs. will be EUR 81.00 ea.

lead time is 10 weeks - ouch!

But hey - considering they haven't been in production for almost 20 years, 10 weeks is nothing, right  ;D
So should we start a list here, or should I start a dedicated thread for it?
