Four reasons why I would chose this mic over any other clone and even over a genuine U87 from the 70s:
Price: Costs about 1/10 of the U87 price, saving me about 10-15,000£
Performance: On/Off axis or polarity switch make NO tonal changes to the sound whatsoever. The mic changes it’s pickup direction, but the tonality remains untouched. The mic has the genuine U87 darkness and thickness, but is less harsh in the higher-mids.
Durability: Unlike the 50 year old U87 you don’t need to repair this mic every month. .
Versatility: The “Voicing Switch” opens up the high-end and essentially gives you a second modern-sounding mic in the body of the first.

Too Much To Be Concerned About
- was so often on mind when I’ve created this EP - being concerned as a musician can get quite difficult and that’s the reason why I named it this way.
I‘m so thankful to all the people that helped me producing this #ep and joined me in this ride!
