Neumann U 87 Ai

Microphone Description

Brand: Neumann
Model: U 87 Ai

The U 87 is probably the best known and most widely used Neumann studio microphone. It is equipped with a large dual diaphragm capsule offering three directional patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-of-8. These are selectable with a switch below the head-grille.

A 10dB attenuation switch is located on the rear. This enables the microphone to handle sound pressure levels up to 127dB without distortion. In addition, the low-frequency response can be reduced to compensate for the proximity effect.
