The Definitive Vocal Microphone
The debate is finally over, the UT Twin87 captures the essence of both the original classic and modern incarnations of the “87-style” microphone design. For the first time ever, United has created a microphone that duplicates both circuits, and can reconfigure itself on the fly for an exceptional reproduction of the sonic capabilities of both microphones. The UT Twin87 features our own large-core, custom-wound, US-made output transformer, our own custom made 24k gold sputtered dual diaphragm/dual backplate K87 style capsule, and a whole assortment of selected, premium components such as polystyrene, tantalum, multilayer ceramic, WIMA film capacitors, metal and carbon film resistors, and hand-selected transistors.
Vintage, or modern? The UT Twin87 finally ends the debate with a new answer — both.
With all of the extra features and high-end components, the UT Twin87 is a truly exceptional microphone — but its real strength is its accuracy in providing the same sound engineers have grown to love in every variation of the “87-style” circuit.
