The Neumann U 87 is a microphone we use here at Styles Recording Studio in Exeter Devon. It presents a wide range of features and versatility that make it to one of the most desirable mics available. Our clients recognise the microphone immediately by its distinctive design. Well-known for its warm and well balanced characteristics - a perfect choice as vocal microphone for all types of music and speech. The usage as main microphone for orchestra recordings or as spot mic for single instruments make it the most general-purpose microphone - in studios, for broadcasting, film and television.
