FAB 87 Condenser Microphone

Talaiot Audio Factory in collaboration with FAB Microphones have now recreated the most famous from 70s rev16 version of the U87 microphone. The FAB 87 uses the exact same circuit as the original with our custom designed circuit board.

The finest components are used throughout the build, premium electrolytic and polystyrene capacitors, military resistors with very tight tolerances, selected transistors and central to this is our own specially designed transformer hand made by FAB Transformers in the UK.

The core of the 87 sound is the capsule and transformer and we have chosen what we believe is one of the finest capsules available. The K87 capsule we have chosen is custom made by Eric Heiserman in the USA.

The sound of this microphone is very balanced with detail and presence.

  • With 14dB pad, HP filter and polar pattern selector to choose between omni, cardiod and figure of eight.
  • Microphone comes with shockmount and case.

This item is hand-built to order, to ensure the best attention to detail is paid to its construction. This allows us to build a very high quality product overall. Please allow at least 7-10 business days for your order to be built and then shipped.
