KMR Audio Germany is proud to announce the release of the new Peluso P-87, a solid state large diaphragm condenser microphone. The P-87 delivers all of the clarity, detail and warmth users have come to expect from American brand Peluso. The reliability of solid-state electronics combined with a spectacularly low price make this a very appealing microphone. Taking its inspiration from the 1970’s versions of the vintage U-87 microphone, the P-87 is Peluso’s latest effort to bring one of history’s greatest mics to life again.
The P-87 microphone build is simple and durable to provide a lifetime of use. Electrical components are carefully selected to be only the highest quality. These components are all carefully hand soldered into ultra-high impedance circuit boards. The P-87 uses conventional heavy-duty toggle switches on board the mic. The heavy brass body is durable and shields the audio circuit from radio frequency and other environmental noise. A soft velvet bag is provided to keep your mic safe and polished.
Accompanying the P-87 are all the tools you’ll need to use your mic in a variety of applications. A shock mount is supplied to isolate the mic from vibrations to get that perfect vocal. A hard mount is supplied to get the precise placement you need for drum micing. Both of these mounts have been redesigned to employ a lever-arm tightening wrench to get a good tight ‘no-slip’ position by hand. A foam wind & pop filter is supplied for outdoor locations and very close vocalists. A locking flight case lined with precision cut foam keeps the whole package safe and secure.
The P-87’s capsule is composed of two center-terminated diaphragms and back plates assembled back to back. The diaphragms are stretched with gold bonded Mylar. Through independently switching the phase on each side of the capsule, the P-87 is capable of delivering cardioid, omni-directional and figure ‘8’ polar patterns. The P-87 is equipped with a low frequency roll off switch and a -10 dB pad switch. These three switches are located on the mic body. The P-87 circuit is built around a precision laser trimmed FET. With the highest quality low noise resisters and capacitors the P-87 has a very low noise floor, incredible consistency and a high overload point. This provides great detail and clarity even with high volume sources. The custom designed transformer output controls transients, providing velvety smooth response.
