Overview

Few microphones are more ubiquitous and beloved than the Neumann U 87 Ai, found in recording and broadcast studios in every corner of the planet and heard on hundreds of thousands of recordings and arguably the benchmark by which other FET microphones are judged. Originally released in 1967 and wholly unchanged since 1987, the U 87 Ai is a phenomenal do-it-all condenser microphone that's equally at home in front of a singer, hanging above a drum kit, or peeking into a grand piano.

More Information

Founded in 1928, Neumann ranks as one of the premier makers of professional microphones in the world. The U 87 is a classic Neumann design that was based on the earlier tube-based U 67. The U 87 has seen just a few changes over the years, and remains an extremely common pro-level studio mic. For many, the U 87 stands with the Shure SM57 as one of the most iconic mics of all time.
