Styled after the legendary classic 1970's version of Neumann's U-87 is the Peluso P-87. We have captured the sound and magic of the most popular microphone ever made by emulating the vintage design characteristics. This center terminated large diaphragm 48v phantom powered microphone features transformer output. The P-87 employs three heavy-duty toggle switches on the microphone body. Polar Patterns are controlled on the front of the mic with a three-position switch for cardioid, omni, and figure of 8 patterns. On the rear of the mic, a low frequency roll-off switch decreases the low-end gain, countering the proximity effect of close range vocals. A -10dB pad switch for lower gain can be used with close range brass, guitar cabinets, drums or other high level sources.
Acoustically matched pairs available upon special request.
