Iconic and probably one of the most used studio microphones across the globe, the Neumann U87 AI Stereo Set Microphone in Nickel is a multi-directional mic set that provides a wide array of professional features and flexibility that's made it a household name.

Versatile Professional Sound

With a distinct design that's immediately recognisable, the U87 provides functionality that's bound to shine in any scenario, making it essential in any experienced producer's arsenal.

Neumann U87 AI Stereo Set Microphone in Nickel Features:

  • Variable Large Diaphragm Microphone Pressure
  • Gradient Transducer with Double Membrane Capsule
  • The Studio Microphone Classic
  • Three Directional Characteristics: Omni, Cardioid, Figure-8
  • Switchable Low-Frequency Roll-Off
  • Switchable 10 dB Pre-Attenuation
  • Ideal as Main and as Support Microphone in the Most Differing Recording Situations

Newly-Improved Performance

Boasting improved circuitry for a performance that'll never let you down, the core capsule that makes the Neumann U87 stand out remains the same. So you're able to achieve the same sonic quality that's been featured on an extensive range of timeless records and performances.

With more headroom than ever before, the newly-designed circuitry delivers an improved signal to noise ratio of up to 3dB, courtesy of a minimised resistance supplied by the capsule bias voltage.

Multiple Polar Patterns

The Neumann U87 consists of three adaptable polar patterns, the first is Cardioid, an excellent choice for a more refined sound with precision on stage or in a session.

However, Fig. 8 brings the ability to capture sound from not only the front but also the back whilst eliminating all sound from the sides. Something that's a must for backing vocals with absolute ease.

Not only that but the Omnidirectional option captures sound within a 360 degrees radius, essential for achieving the famous drum room sounds.

Customisable Functionality

Get the right sound for your session with ease thanks to the U87's built-in controls, so whether you're tracking drums and amplifiers with higher SPLs, the attenuator pad is sure to be helpful. By reducing the sensitivity of the capsule by 10 dB, you're able to avoid potential clipping and distortion.
