Our DIY handmade kit is a perfect clone of the legendary Neumann U87 FET microphone ✅ the standard for years in the recording industry and studios around the world. You have the choice in the options, either in DIY it’s you the builder or already assembled by Mic&Mod and ready to play!
The original U87 sound
With the K87 Premium capsule according to the original specifications, the sound of our kit is faithful to the original microphone found in the world’s largest studios.
The perfect original U87 clone!
The schematic is a full replica of the original microphone. It is a side-address, large-diaphragm design based on K87 capsule, the best FET, premiums componants and a T87 transformer-coupled output circuit.
All components are carefully matched and selected in our workshops. We attach great importance to the precision of our circuits to be as accurate as possible compared to the original.
We have tried to stay as close as possible to the original vintage design, here is the new vintage label from MIC&MOD which will be affixed to every DIY or built model kit!

U87 Silver Microphone Body
U87 Satin Headbasket 2 layers
T87 Output Transformer by Replica Microphones®

I have now built 3 of them and all sounded richer and clearer in comparison shots than an original Neumann U87Ai. My recommendation: Use the attached modified capacitor for more low end and search for the mod for the low cut filter in Discord!
The best U87 clone for me!
Took a long time to arrive (in Australia) but it was worth the wait. This mic is just amazing, the sound is pure and provides no imperfections, I'm thinking of recommending another one soon!
Sehr zufrieden mit meinem Kauf, ich empfehle es zu 100% weiter
Ich habe lange nach einem U87-Klon gesucht, der dem Original ähnelt. Ich muss zugeben, dass der von Mic&Mod wirklich die beste Wahl war, viel interessanter als der von "Warm Audio".
Recommended U87 kit!
I can only recommend this kit! Extremely high-quality components and of course exactly the original U87 sound you are looking for 🙂
And it‘s fun and not hard to build, with a perfect documentation!

"This kit is easy to build for beginner about 4hours or more if you take your time. Sounds just wonderful against my old Lauten mic and to me better as AKG C414XLII for vocal in the mix.
