Overview

Do it all with a classic-inspired FET mic.

The UA Bock 187 is Universal Audio’s large-diaphragm FET condenser mic, built to give vocals and instruments the classic tone of the legendary U 87, with modern sonic enhancements by mic designer David Bock. Handbuilt at the UA Custom Shop in California, this boutique cardioid condenser is destined to be the cornerstone of your studio for years to come.

Capture Classic Sounds, With Modern Flexibility

Vintage U 87 mics are known for their presence, but can get strident when pushed. Our UA Bock 187 enhances this classic design with a larger transformer, refined circuitry, and a unique "fat" mode that delivers a boost between 10Hz and 400Hz. This translates into more dynamic range, presence, and fullness on vocals, guitars and more.

Add a Handmade Masterpiece to Your Mic Locker

The UA Bock 187 is David Bock's inspired take on the legendary U 87 microphones he studied and maintained as chief technical engineer of the world's top recording studios for two decades. Handbuilt at UA’s Custom Shop in Santa Cruz, California, the UA Bock 187 mic gives you the "golden unit" tone of an iconic studio staple.
