If my email archive is any indication, the Neumann U87 is the most lusted-for microphone in history. That's the most commonly named microphone everybody wants to buy.
I have a theory about this. I'm collecting data to see whether my hypothesis is correct.
You can help, whether you own the mic or not. Here are the questions:
- If you own a U87 or U87 Ai, is it a go-to mic in your sessions, or do you feel like you frequently reach past it for more 'interesting' choices?
- If you don't own the mic, but you would include it in your short list of top 5 most wanted to buy: have you ever actually used one?
Please post your response! I'm eager to see if I'm right. :-)
