Faulty U87?
Author: Gustav Svensson
Date: 11/15/2013
Hello there!
Bought an old u87 from ebay the other day, and tested it yesterday for the first time.
Sadly I suspect that something is wrong with it.. Sounds very muddy. Although I have only compared it next to an ADK 51 (which I assume is hyped in the high freq.), I still found the differences far too big.
Is it the capsule?
I'm planning on sending it in for service (in sweden, sennheiser), I guess this is the right thing to do?
Anybody got a clue what a service plus capsule replacement would cost me?... seems I already spent a small fortune.
Oh, btw. I'm not sure about the age of the mic, serial A24773. Says U87 P48, NOT i or anything.
Thanks!
/Gustav
