The DA 87i delivers the sound of the most famous vintage microphone of all time. The DA 87i is built from carefully curated components, including a nickel-plated brass mic body, extraordinary mic capsule, a perfect replica of the vintage circuit, premium components throughout — including polystyrene capacitors and a custom output transformer.

No ordinary capsule

The DA 87i comes standard with the premium DA-K87 mic capsule, renowned for its unmistakable performance compared to capsules found in the earliest U87 microphones.

Made from imported Japanese mylar, precision-milled brass backplates, and assembled in a clean-room environment, the DA-K87 captures your audio with a warm, musical tone complete with silky yet present highs and impressive consistency from capsule to capsule. We have taken the best of old-world German capsule design and used modern manufacturing techniques to make incredible strides in consistency and reliability.

Vintage circuit

The DA 87i combines our proprietary reproduction of the most sought after microphone circuit in history with premium, audiophile components that are sure to impress even the most discerning purists.

Every aspect of the DA 87i has been meticulously designed to capture your performance with the famous, vintage tone you’ve been chasing — and priced for everyone.

Premium components

In order to achieve the most faithful vintage sound, the DA 87i uses the highest quality materials throughout, including components from Vishay, Dale, WIMA, Panasonic, and more — polystyrene caps too.

Custom transformer
Our all-new DA-BV13 output transformer was developed specifically for our DA 87i. With a high nickel core and authentic 9.5:1 winding, the DA-BV13 delivers exceptional bandwidth and low phase shift.
Accessories included

The DA 87i doesn’t just include a beautiful nickel-plated brass mic body and remarkable build quality. You also get a real wood microphone box, premium shock mount, and swivel mount for ultimate flexibility in any recording environment.

The included professional shock mount isolates your microphone from low-frequency noise and vibration for cleaner audio capture. And when your session is finished, every microphone deserves a good home. With the included custom wood box, you can safely store your DA 87i in style.
