Default Neumann Microphone Repair in NYC?

Any recommendations for a good place in NYC that can repair my Neuamnn U87. I just got an original U87 off Ebay and the thing is cutting in and out....slowly....not hard cuts. Kind of a wierd fading in and out when I jiggle the xlr plug where it attaches to the mic. It's not the cord, the problem occurred when plugged into any of my cables. I just got the mic and am feeling stupid for falling pray to a bad Ebay scam. Was hoping to use the mic during a 4 day session I'm doing out in NJ this weekend. Quick turnaround on the repair would be greatly appreciated. (Would love to have it back by Thurs pm/Friday am) Thanks for any help you can give. Sorry for the non-PT post...

Thanks,

Steve

Klaus Heine, Corbett, OR (503) 695-3410

Expect to be U87-less for a few weeks. Klaus is the best. (Don't know any NYC repair.)

Did Gotham Audio go out of business. I sent them a U-87 5 or 6 years ago... They did a fine job. (it did NOT take 5 years [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] )

Don't have a number though.

innerTUBE audio U87 retrofit, will replace the solid state electronics with a very happening tube circuit... it is a non destructive mod that you can do yourself.
