Your mixing board may not be supplying 48 volt phantom power, which is required by the U89. Check with a voltmeter from pin 2 of the XLR to pin 1, see that it's 48 +/- 4 volts.

My u87 cuts out when you get to close but comes back on in 2 secs seems to be wind pressure from singing. many thanks Graham


problem is a dirty capsule caused when fogged with humidity from breath it shorts out temporarily. it maybe possible to have it professionally cleaned but may need to be replaced. DO NOT USE FOAM POP FILTERS. Spend the money on a metal one. back off if you wanna save some loot.

My U87 microphone won't power up...no signal. does anyone know why this may be happening?


Was it working fine before it stopped powering up? The U87 is a condenser microphone so maybe the reason it is not powering up is because the phantom power on your interface was not turned on. Plug the U87 into your preamp and then switch on the phantom power (48V) to get it powered up. If that doesn't help, there must be an internal fault within the microphone or in your preamp.

Usually the distortion is from over gain on the preamp or the spl of the actual voice on the diaphragm have him step back a few steps and try again.

Neumann U87 no signal


Who serviced the mic? Send the mic to Tracy Korby or Klaus Heyne.

The capsule can get dirty and then behave in the way that you describe. It is possible that a simple cleaning by a professional will bring the mic up to spec.
