The Neumann U 87 has been the standard of the recording industry since 1967. This microphone is famous for its warm sound and well-balanced characteristics. The current U 87A yields a 6dB improvement in signal-to-noise over its predecessor. It is equipped with an LF roll-off switch to reduce the proximity effect and a 10dB pad. Used extensively for vocals and orchestras, the U 87A is also particularly suited for cello, brass, piano, and percussion.
U 87A is sold individually or in configurations mated with popular accessories for stand mounting.
