The DA 87SE is inspired by the best of the DA 87i. With our K87SE mic capsule, custom transformer, and premium components, the 87SE is standout performer in any scenario. It’s the perfect workhouse.
Thanks to the K87SE mic capsule at its core, the DA 87SE delivers the unmistakeable sound of history’s most legendary studio microphone.
The K87SE is made from all-brass backplates and imported gold-sputtered Mylar for authentic vintage performance complete with warm lows and silky smooth highs.
The DA 87SE uses the same 87 style circuit as our renowned DA 87i — without the additional switches for variable pickup patterns, low-cut, and 10dB pad.
And just like the DA 87i, the 87SE uses high quality materials and components, including Panasonic FC capacitors, WIMA capacitors, polystyrene capacitors, and tight-tolerance resistors.
Our all-new DA-BV13 output transformer was developed specifically for our DA 87i and 87SE circuits. With a high nickel core and historically accurate 9.5:1 winding, the DA-BV13 delivers the exceptional bandwidth and low-phase shift you want in a world class microphone.
