For 50 years, Neumann’s U87 microphone has been setting standards in audio recording. Now, the company is celebrating the 50th anniversary with the U87 Rhodium Edition.
The Neumann U87 Rhodium Edition has a rhodium-plated exterior. Rarer than gold, rhodium reflects light more than any other metal. This is why it is used for the mirrors of high-performance telescopes that study the farthest reaches of the universe. This transcendent quality sets it above other precious metals.
Exclusive, limited and made to order, Neumann is offering the U87 Rhodium Edition only once, made to order and limited to 500 units worldwide. Each of the microphones is individually numbered with a certificate of authenticity signed by Wolfgang Fraissinet, Neumann’s president.
Every U87 Rhodium Edition is supplied with a Neumann aluminum case and a special Rhodium Edition EA 87 elastic suspension. A pair of black gloves is also included for keeping the limited-edition microphone in pristine condition.
The U87 Rhodium Edition is available from select dealers with orders starting from September, 2017. To learn more and to enquire as to availability, visit the special microsite.
