Neumann Announces 40th Anniversary U 87 Special Edition Microphone
For the 40th anniversary of the ubiquitous U 87 microphone, Neumannhas released an exclusive U 87 Anniversary Set. This special edition, in a specialized case, is offered with an exclusively designed pop screen.
The set also contains a dust cover embroidered with the anniversary logo, and a pair of white gloves for handling this valuable equipment. A signed and framed certificate of authenticity with individual serial number completes each original set. The U 87 is equipped with a large dual-diaphragm capsule with three directional patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8. These are selectable with a switch below the headgrille. 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.
