Universal Audio Bock 187 FET Condenser Microphone
The UA Bock 187 is Universal Audio’s large-diaphragm FET condenser mic. Above all, it gives vocals and instruments the classic tone of the legendary U87. Also, it comes with modern sonic enhancements by mic designer David Bock. This boutique cardioid condenser will be the cornerstone of your studio.
Capture Classic Sounds, with Modern Flexibility
Vintage U87 mics are known for their presence but can get strident when pushed. The UA Bock 187 enhances this classic design with a larger transformer, refined circuitry, and a unique “fat” mode that delivers a boost between 10 Hz and 400 Hz. Specifically, this translates into more dynamic range, presence, and fullness on vocals, guitars, and more.
Add a Handmade Masterpiece to your Mic Locker
The UA Bock 187 is David Bock’s take on the legendary U87 microphones. In fact, he studied and maintained himself as chief technical engineer of the world’s top recording studios for two decades. Moreover, handbuilt at UA’s Custom Shop in Santa Cruz, California, the UA Bock 187 mic gives you the “golden unit” tone of an iconic studio staple.
