Universal Audio Bock 187 Large Diaphragm FET Condenser Microphone

Large diaphragm FET condenser microphone featuring fixed cardioid polar pattern, proprietary 1” dual diaphragm K67 type brass capsule, and Fat switch for increased low-end

Product Description

In 2020, Universal Audio enlisted David Bock of Bock Audio to design a new line of premium tube and FET condenser microphones based on his most cherished designs. Manufactured in Santa Cruz, California, the Universal Audio Bock 187 is a large-diaphragm FET condenser microphone that features a cardioid polar pattern, high-quality through-hole components, and timeless UA design for the professional engineer and recording artist.

The 187 is a take on the '87 - widely considered the gold standard of microphones in modern audio recording. For over 50 years, it has been used in recording studios all over the world to capture award-winning performances. Adored for its smooth, refined sound, this classic large diaphragm condenser mic will instantly bring any instrument to life. Featuring a smooth midrange and nuanced, detailed sound, the UA Bock 187 is more than just another '87 clone. While originals feature a selectable omnidirectional, cardioid, and bi-directional polar patterns, this version utilizes a fixed cardioid. A rumble filter at 50 Hz keeps out unwanted low frequencies. The built-in fat switch instantly beefs up your sound - ideal for drums and for electric guitar!

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
