Neumann U 89 i MT Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone (Black)
The Neumann U 89 i
is a large diaphragm condenser microphone made for vocal and general instrument recording or sound reinforcement. Similar to the U 87, the Neumann U 89 i
maintains the favored sound character and warmth, as well as some added features. The U 89 i
features 5 switchable polar patterns. Omni-directional, cardioid, wide-angle cardioid and hyper-cardioid provide flexibility for any recording scenario. The U 89 i
's capsule features a shock mounted dual diaphragm providing a wide frequency response while handling sound pressure levels up to 134dB. A -6dB Pad switch increases the microphone's SPL handling capability to 140dB. A low frequency roll-off switch effectively minimizes hum and low frequency rumble at 80 or 160Hz (switchable). In addition, the U 89 i
features a smaller, light weight foot print allowing greater positioning flexibility.
