Universal Audio Bock 187 FET Condenser Microphone Overview

The Universal Audio Bock 187 FET Condenser Microphone presents a modern take on the revered Neumann U87 - perfect for vocals, drum overheads, percussion and acoustic instruments.

The UA Bock 187 is a jewel in the crown of contemporary recording technology. Created by the California-based audio powerhouse, Bock Audio, this small-diaphragm FET condenser microphone is specifically tailored to register fast transients and high-frequency details with unparalleled accuracy and clarity.

Hailing from the heart of California, Bock Audio, a subsidiary of Universal Audio, consistently merges innovation and craftsmanship to create exquisite boutique microphones.

Based on a Classic

This modern tool is Bock Audio’s salute to the past, embodying a modern interpretation of the iconic Neumann U87 microphone. This classic microphone carved a unique niche for itself in the '70s and '80s, famed for its mastery in recording vocals, drums, percussion, and acoustic instruments.

The UA Bock 187 is more than just a microphone, it is an essential tool for those seeking clean, detailed sound with just the right hint of warmth. It enjoys a stellar reputation amongst recording engineers and producers who value accuracy and clarity in their work.

The Best of Vintage and Modern

The UA Bock Audio 187 is a beautiful blend of old and new. Its custom-made transformer infuses the sound with a dash of warmth and body, maintaining the clarity and detail expected of a modern FET design. The microphone’s cardioid polar pattern is ideal for focusing on the source directly in front of the microphone, while efficiently rejecting sounds coming from the sides and rear.

Detail and Nuance Captured

Ideal for capturing the delicate nuances of acoustic instruments such as guitars, strings, and brass, the UA Bock Audio 187 delivers clean, detailed sound. Its prowess also extends to drum overheads and percussion, where it deftly captures the swift transients and intricate high-frequency details.

Used by Legends

Legendary recording engineer Al Schmitt uses the UA Bock Audio 187 for drum overheads, recording timeless pieces for Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, and Diana Krall. Similarly, acclaimed producer Tony Maserati has used this versatile tool for a wide range of instruments, contributing to recordings for global sensations like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Alicia Keys.
