    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.
    Comparaison comming soon !

    Why is the cardioid/omni switch inside? Seems a very silly place to put it - plus why share one switch between pattern and pad? This makes no sense as a design.

    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 !!
