U87Ai Studio Microphone - with free Shock mount
This price includes a FREE shock mount.
The Neumann U87Ai is probably the best-known and most frequently used studio microphone the world over. Its smooth and refined sound is as iconic as its elegant exterior design. The U87Ai is the standard microphone for speech and vocals. Three polar patterns plus pad and low cut options make it adaptable to a wide range of applications.
Due to its solid bass response and excellent mid-range detail, it is often seen in front of bass and guitar cabinets. For classical recordings, the U87Ai is frequently used as a spot mic for soloists, e.g. cello. A stereo pair of U87Ai's is the preferred choice of many engineers for recording piano in virtually any genre from pop and jazz to classical music.
