The V87 is a large diaphragm, low noise FET condenser microphone that absolutely shines in the mid to upper range registers. With an outstanding mix of smoothness and clarity, the V87 is perfectly suited for up-close vocal recordings. It’s low-noise, transformerless output also makes it an excellent choice for detailed stringed instruments and piano recordings. V87’s sound quality and solid construction make this a valuable addition to your microphone collection.


The V87 delivers the same vocal clarity and intimacy as some of our other mics but with a natural essence to the frequency response, making it appropriate for various voices and applications. The V87 is a go-to for critical vocal recording and has even found its way into Podcast and Voice Over setups for optimal voice capture.
