Hi gang !

After building a T47 and T12 I thought it would be great to have a U-87 inspired mic in my arsenal.
So here is a video of the complete build.
Comparison coming soon !

MicParts have a S3 series of kits with both switches available but it's more expesive :

Honestly, there isn't one recording session that I do not use one...
They offer great levels and low self noise.
Since I now have the 3 major capsule in the 3 mic kits that I built, (T47, T12 and S-87) I'm happy to say that those complete themself perfectly for almost any jobs.
I should say that I'm not sponsored, I just love what MicParts offer, fun kits with detailed instructions anyone can follow.
Those mics compared to other mics twice their prices !!
