Beesneez K8 K87 Microphone Capsule

The K87 was originally manufactured and made famous in the Neuman U87. It has isolated backplates, which was a feature necessary in this microphone to achieve accurate pattern control with a lower bias voltage of 48v given that the U87 was a phantom powered microphone. Many tens of thousands of U87's are in active service today. We manufacture this capsule with two purposes in mind. Firstly as a perfect substitute for the Neumann K87 Capsule. Secondly, many DIY’ers are undertaking the original U87 (p) (i) and this capsule is essential. The Beesneez K8 is also available in large quanties.

Our mylar is 6 micron DuPont that we personally frame, sputter, tune, and fix to the backplate, which we also wholly manufacture. This capsule is a perfect replacement K87 (K8) capsule for the DIY microphone build, or professional microphone manufacturer. 

*Please note that the saddle and mount are included.
