Build Your Own U87 Mic?

Having taught audio for nearly 13 years, it never ceases to amaze me how many students area really into building their own gear, which is a true sign that the next generation will be a-ok.

Even where I teach currently (Belmont.edu), students in our Audio Maintenance courses build their own custom API style preamps.

So what about you? Ever thought about taking one of those cheap Nady condensers and turning it into your very own U87 clone?

According to the awesome folks over at diyrecordingequipment.com, it’s easier than you think, and they’ve got an 11 minute video to prove it. If you go through with it, post your feedback in a comment and we’d love to feature you and some of the sweet sounds you capture right here on Multi-Platinum.com.
