    The Truth

    You may ask " Does this microphone tell the truth"?
    I would have to say "No" " It tells a version of the Truth that people most like, Its Warm and Friendly".
    If you want a vocal mic that tells the truth with Arabic or Greek vocals then use a TLM 170 or a Schoeps omni or wide cardioid. With North European or North American Vocals the U87, C414 (or QTC40) are your only real choices.

    An amazing microphone

    I had a cheaper mic that was still a very good mic around the $500 range. There is no comparison. This mic sounds just perfect. It doesn't pick up back ground noises like other mics, it's like it has it's own built in noise gate. Every other mic I've ever used sound too hissy on the high ends. This mic has such a perfect EQ spectrum. Through an SSL channel strip it just sounds unbelievable! I've always wanted this mic but price wise couldn't pull the trigger. I finally did and you certainly get what you pay for! - Thanks Paul Allen for your continued support !

    The ULTIMATE Workhorse

    Beyond being a fantastic vocal mic. The U87 really makes both acoustic and electric guitar stand out and POP in a mix. Most signals recorded with this mic require little to no processing. SUPERB!!

    Neumann lives up to its legendary name.

    I wouldn't say that I was "blown away" by the sound of this microphone. Be that as it may... It is an awesome piece of gear. A very accurate reproduction of the source sound. Isn't that the idea? There is a reason why it is the standard for serious studios.
