Overview

The Neumann U87 studio Microphone is famous for its warm sound and well-balanced characteristics. Equipped with a large dual-diaphragm capsule with 3 selectable directional patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-8, it offers a 6dB improvement in signal-to-noise over its predecessor. A 10dB attenuation switch enables the U87 to handle sound levels up to 127dB without distortion; and the low frequency response can be reduced to compensate for proximity effect. The preferred studio vocal mic for decades, the Neumann U87 also makes a great main mic for band or home studio recordings, as well as a spot mic for single instruments. Frequency range: 20Hz to 20kHz; impedance rated at 200 ohms. The Shockmount includes a windscreen, cable, EA87 elastic suspension and comes in a wooden jeweler's box.

Requires phantom power.

Neumann U87 Ai Set

By 

from Sarasota, Florida

Comments about Neumann U87 Ai Shockmount Set Z Microphone with Box:

What can you say it's an 87 and still everything you want in a microphone. In fact when is the last the last time you heard someone say Darn, I wish I didn't buy an 87. The fact is I have been recording for years and have owned U87's in the past and work with them constantly. They are a consistant go to microphone they make most everything sound great not just really good but great. I just cut some vocal and electric guitar tracks and with just a little mic placement and good technique captured some killer vocals that required ZERO Eq and great guitar tracks about 2 feet back and a Telefunken M81 at speaker edge. That session alone was my payback on the expense of this microphone set. Save your money don't buy a bunch of want to be microphones. Just get a U87 and you won't look back.

Awesome

By 

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Neumann U87 Ai Shockmount Set Z Microphone with Box:

There is a reason this microphone is the industry standard for recording vocals... It is quite possibly the best vocal mic. Some of the vocal mics I have in my mic locker include: Neumann TLM 103 Ann., Telefunken U47, Rode Classic II, and the AKG C12. All of the above microphones are amazing; however, the U87 stands slightly above the rest for a few reasons. It is durable, reliable, and maintenance is nonexistent (outside of proper storage). Of course, some vocalist will sound better through a U47 or an AKG C12... Nevertheless, the U87 tends to fit most voices very well and it is a work horse. I have never heard it sound bad on a voice. I cannot say the same for the U67, U47, AKG C12, and a few others. If you want to compete with the pros... You need this mic...

Neumann U 87 With Avalon 737 SP

By 

from Orange County

Comments about Neumann U87 Ai Shockmount Set Z Microphone with Box:

Are you serious about your voice? If so then this U87 Ai must have for your Studio or for your own hobby, this mice is great, it makes your voice stand out from your mix with its clarity, warm and very details. It every penny you spent on it. I have used this with my Avalon 737SP and TC Reverb M4000. With a little EQ add on to give a voice a little more coloration without using much compression, I set my M4000 in EMT 250 as most pro suggested, I can easily reach to the sound I want. I got my gears at Guitar Center in El Toro, The people here so nice and they're willing to accommodate you. I'm absolutely come back for my future purchase, Thanks to Christ and Brian at Guitar Center in El Toro location.
