Neumann U87ai multi-pattern studio condenser microphone

 

Full Neumann price list

 

Budget studio suspension mount

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

A 10 dB attenuation switch is located on the rear. It enables the microphone to handle sound pressure levels up to 127 dB without distortion.

Furthermore, the low frequency response can be reduced to compensate for proximity effect.
