Here for the gear
chasingtheflame's Avatar

Hi all

I've been a lurker on these boards for many years, finally joined up. I'm a 28 y/o songwriter/studio junkie from Australia. I'm a real sucker for nice microphones.

I finally joined because I was/am keen on buying a Neumann U87 AI this week. I was able to borrow one yesterday to do a back-to-back comparison with my current mic (AKG-214). The 87 didn't live up to its expectations however, there is a possibility that it has been damaged and dropped many times. It also hasn't had a service in over 10 years, if not ever. Mic is 30 years old.

I'm keen to hear your thoughts and I'll upload the example on the appropriate board.

Thanks mate! I began playing piano when I was 7 or 8, then choir/voice/piano throughout school..and then when I was 20 I did a course in music production at uni (or college depending on where in the world you are!).

I was the only female in that class and so I kind-of hated it at first, but after a while I fell in love with music production and it's become a huge part of my life. I'll always remember our teacher saying "You will never listen to music the same way again after this course" ha.

I also teach voice privately and I'm in the process of setting up a small facility for music production at the music school that I teach at
