Neumann U87 – Vintage – Mint capsule Picture(s) and Description:

 121863004305754950 Neumann U87   Vintage   Mint capsule

Up for auction today is an ORIGINAL NEUMANN U87 from the 1970s, serial # 32976. It is not the newer, less desirable AI version, it is the original. It is in good condition, with a couple small dents as can be seen in the pictures. I tried to document every single flaw in this microphone, and as you can see there aren't many. The grill and body are in about as good of shape as you'll see on one of these. The capsule is brand new, and was replaced at the Neumann factory, which I have all the documentation for. The capsule they put in is a K87, the exact same capsule that originally came in the microphone. I talked to a tech at Neumann and he assured me that the K87 that is in there now is in every way identical to the K87 that first shipped with the microphone. So this is essentially as close to a "brand new" vintage U87 as you can get. Most vintage U87s on ebay are being sold because the owner knows the capsule is on its last legs and wants to sell it before they have to get it replaced. With this one, you can be positive you will have a great mic for decades to come. So most importantly, how does it sound? It sounds amazing, like no other U87 I've heard before. While most U87s sound a little dark because of their vintage nature, this one sounds full and open, with beautiful sounding highs that aren't harsh or brittle at all. It has all of the typical character you'd expect out of a vintage U87, but with a clean high end like I've never heard before. This mic will be the workhorse of your collection for years to come Please contact me with any questions, I am more than happy to answer them. Also comes with original spider shock mount. Free USPS Priority Mail. I will happily ship worldwide, please contact me if you would like a quote. Thanks for looking! Narcoleptico Store Click here to get free ebay tools at Auctiva.com
