Studio microphone

The reversible microphone U 87 Ai is the successor model of the U 87 i, the most well-known and most widely used microphone of the fet 80 series, which is improved in its technical values. The changes concern the increased output voltage and the reduced equivalent noise level. Both measures contribute to a remarkable improvement in recording quality. The microphone is used in the studios for orchestral recording as the main microphone, it is used as a support microphone for individual instruments use. When transmitting big-bands and when recording instrumental and vocal soloists, but also in such difficult tasks as the production of a radio play U 87 Ai is used with its many possibilities.

Incomparable !

Micro d'une grande finesse.
Utilsé en studio pour des voix, des guitares acoustiques, un piano, des ambiances batterie.
Toujours un résultat impeccable. Le diagramme est très précis, très contrôlé, ce qui permet d'obtenir une grande séparation des sources.
Rien d'étonnant à ce qu'on le trouve dans nombre de studios.
Impossible de ne pas réussir une prise avec un tel bijou!

Un classico... evoluto
CDNz 13.07.2019
Rispetto alle vecchie versioni che ho sempre usato (pre Ai), questi nuovi hanno più guadagno e il suono è perfetto! Tante basse (tutte quelle che riesce a produrre il microfono e...integre, in virtù del fatto che i microfoni sono nuovi di pacca) e il resto del colore classico dell'U87. Utilizzando di continuo vecchi U87 mi stavo disaffezionando a questo mic. Ma nuovo è tutto un altro suono! L'unica pecca è che arriva senza supporto, peccato.
