Personally i think it doesn't mainly depend on the mic.
There is a difference
which preamp or channel-strip is used, the distance between singer/instrument and mic.....
There is also a difference between vintage and newer U87...

A good sounding EQ (e.g.) during recording can be helpful, to get the sound you are looking for.

U87 quality level is high enough to get nearly everything to sound right.
