GMV for U87: Legendary Microphone Used in Voice Recordings

GM Voices Accepts Nothing Less than the Best in Studio Sound

Microphones—they’re all the same, right?  To some voice recording companies, this may be true, but here atGM Voices, when it comes to top-of-the-line sound, there is none other than the Neumann U87 microphone.  Recently named Best Microphone by SOUND ON SOUND magazine, the Neumann U87 is a studio microphone classic, the best of its kind, providing a standard by which all else is measured.  Classic artists such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and the Beatles were lovers of these renowned microphones for their pristine sound quality.

Georg Neumann founded the Neumann brand in Germany in 1928. Not only was Neumann interested in manufacturing microphones, he also dabbled in phonograph record-cutting machines, radio station signal transmitters, as well as rechargeable batteries; the same as we use in many products today.  Neumann was a man of many talents, but his most loved legacy was and always will be microphones.  

In 1966, the phantom powering method that had been used for years in certain telephone systems, was adapted so that a compatible method of powering would allow tube, solid-state, and dynamic microphones to all be connected to the same power supplies. This was the same technology which would go into making the infamous U87 microphone.

With over 75 years of experience, the Neumann name is synonymous with excellence in audio. The U87’s warm, well-balanced characteristics make it the perfect choice for a vocal microphone for all types of music and speech. Here at GM Voices, we would think of using none other than this legendary microphone.  We take every measure to ensure the highest quality voice over production possible, which is why the classic sound of the Neumann U87 is the production gold standard at GM Voices.
