The Neumann U87 AI Studio Set includes the Neumann U87 AI Nickel Microphone with EA87 shockmount – in Nickel.
The iconic Neumann U87, celebrated for its exceptional warmth, rich tonal qualities, and uncompromising precision, is the world's foremost choice for large diaphragm condenser studio microphones. This remarkable microphone features a generous dual-diaphragm capsule offering three distinct directional patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-8, all seamlessly selectable via a conveniently located switch beneath the head grille.

Additionally, users can effortlessly dial down the low-frequency response to mitigate the proximity effect.
