DIY Neumann U87i Microphone

More DIY…Today i show you a way to get an Neumann U87i (not Ai) for under 500 €. The difference between U87i and U87Ai is, that the „i“ got an output transformer what delivers more the vintage slightly compressed sound of an old condenser microphone. I like it very much, because you get on the headphone an instant fitting sound of the singer in the playback.
I made one for myself too and i needed 7h for soldering, measuring and screwing parts together. Unfortunatelly the france DIY page for this microphone is not selling it anymore (, but you can find the parts on different other DIY sites.
