United Studio Technologies proudly present the definitive vocal condenser microphone, based on multiple 87-style models from a span of half a century.

With all of the extra features and high-end components, the UT Twin87 is a truly exceptional microphone — but it’s real strength is it’s accuracy in providing the same sound engineers have grown to love in every variation of the '87-style' circuit.

Painstakingly recreated

During the inception of the UT Twin87, United Studio Technologies cast a wide net to test, measure and record the finest 87-style specimens from the last 50 years stretching back to the earliest vintage models available.

Following this research a new “definitive” 87 microphone was created featuring custom 24k gold sputtered dual diaphragm twinned with dual backplate K87-style capsule, a large core custom wound output transformer, and a proprietary assortment of premium components including multilayer ceramics, tantalum and WIMA film capacitors.

Twin topology

UT Twin87 features two classic sounds in one. Its vintage mode polarises the capsule directly from phantom power a warm and forgiving sound, while modern mode polarises at a higher voltage creating a louder, brighter and overall more articular response for extended top end and an up-front presentation.
