The Neumann U87 AI Studio Set Microphone presents a wide range of features and switchable versatility that make it one of the most desirable studio condenser mics available. Recognisable by its distinctive design and known for its warm rich sound the Neumann U87 sets the mark in the microphone industry by which all other mics are measured. Thanks to its huge detailed clear sound that blends seamlessly into almost any mix the U87 is a stand out microphone that is perfect for recording vocals drums guitars and virtually anything you can think of!
This studio set includes the EA 87 microphone shock mount and wooden protective case. Well known for its warm and well-balanced characteristics the U87 is the perfect choice of vocal mic for all types of music and speech. Its also a great general-purpose microphone for orchestra recordings or as a spot mic for single instruments in studios for broadcasting in film and television. The U 87 Ai condenser microphone is a large diaphragm mic with three polar patterns and a unique frequency and transient response characteristic. The U 87 Ai is addressed from the front and marked with the Neumann logo the frequency response of the cardioid and figure-8 directional characteristics are very flat for frontal sound incidence even in the upper frequency range. The microphone can be used very close to a sound source without the sound becoming unnaturally harsh. By means of a high-pass filter interferences through subsonic and low frequencies are reduced remarkebly. Polar patterns The dual-diaphragm capsule is elastically mounted and protected by a large headgrille. A switch below the headgrille selects the three directional patterns: omnidirectional cardioid and figure-8. A window above this switch shows the symbol of the selected characteristic. Electrical features The circuitry increases the operational headroom of the U 87 Ai by supplying the bias voltages for the capsule through a reduced resistance. The result is a higher sensitivity of 10 dB for identical sound pressure levels and an improved S/N ratio of 3 dB. Filter and attenuation A switch located at the rear attenuates the sensitivity by 10 dB. When this switch is activated the microphone accepts sound pressure levels up to 127 dB without distortion. An additional switch at the rear allows to change the microphones cutoff frequency. This reduces low frequency interference directly at the input of the microphone amplifier. This setting also compensates for the unavoidable bass boost that occurs with all pressure gradient transducers when they are used at close distance. The cardioid characteristic maintains a smooth frequency response at a distance of 30 to 40 cm the figure-8 characteristic even at a distance of 15 to 20 cm. The U87 Ai can be used universally with great effects. Try it in applications ranging from overhead situations broadcasting dubbing and voiceovers a classical studio mic for both soloists and backing vocalists as well as a spot mic for wind and string instruments.
