Dachman Audio DA-K87 Microphone Capsule

Dachman Audio DA-K87 Microphone Capsule


The DA-K87 by Dachman Audio is a K87/K67-style 34mm microphone capsule.

The DA-K87 is our best K87-style capsule and features 6-micron Japanese mylar, electrically-isolated backplates, and includes a custom saddle that is compatible with most mounting posts.

We think it’s the best capsule available for DIY U87 builds and upgrades to inexpensive U87-style clones.

The Dachman Audio DA-K87 mic capsule is inspired by the K87 design found in legendary microphones like the Neumann U87i. It features precision-drilled, brass dual backplates and Japanese 6-micron gold-sputtered mylar.

The DA-K87 supports both cardioid-only and multi-pattern microphone circuits.
