format_quote The Neumann U87 presents a wide range of features and versatility that make it to one of the most desirable mics available. Well-known for its warm and well balanced characteristics - your perfect choice as vocal microphone for all types of music and speech. The usage as main microphone for orchestra recordings or as spot mic for single instruments make it the most general-purpose microphone - in studios, for broadcasting, film and television.
The U 87 is equipped with a large dual-diaphragm capsule with three directional patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8. These are selectable with a switch below the headgrille. A 10 dB attenuation switch is located on the rear. It enables the microphone to handle sound pressure levels up to 127 dB without distortion. Furthermore, the low frequency response can be reduced to compensate for proximity effect.
Made in 1978, this Neumann U87 is a fine specimen. It is in excellent working and very good visual condition.
The microphone has been serviced:
Amplifier overhauled, HPF switch repaired, new pin installed. Technical and acoustical measurements were taken. Vintage KK87 capsule installed.
