Radio host and voice talent Christopher Springmann is using the Neumann U 87.

Springmann, host of the syndicated "Life, Love & Health," built his personal studio around a U 87 and added a Grace Design m101 preamp. Springmann's engineer, Max Kline said, "Together, the Neumann U 87 and the Grace m101 become a force to be reckoned with."

Springmann said, "The U 87 has a distinct personality, one that becomes more evident as I learn to wrap my voice around the mic at different angles and distances … The bottom line is, regardless of cost, the mic delivers a quality signal that ultimately sounds great on both live radio and recordings."


New Neumann Gets Old Number

The new TLM 67 uses the same K 67 capsule as the 1960s Neumann U 67 mic and also features new circuit technology that closely reproduces the sound characteristics of the U 67 without the use of tubes.
