Neumann u89

Make / Model: Neumann U89
Year: ?

Build Quality





Most folks rave about the u87 as the bad ass standard Neumann. To me, it’s the U89. Why? The studio I interned at had this instead. Why? Because it sounds better, has extended High end response or something…

It’s a great mic. Multiple patterns. Beautiful response. It does have that Neumann upper midrange, which will either be amazing or horrible depending on the source. But when it’s right, it does something no other mic can do. Solid mic.
