Iconic Golden Unit Sounds with Modern Enhancements
Handmade in the USA to the exacting specifications of world-renowned mic designer David Bock, the Bock 187 delivers all of the classic tone of the legendary U87 microphone with modern sonic enhancements, including a lo-cut filter, a -10 dB pad, and a Fat switch that boosts low-end frequencies between 10 and 400 Hz.
The Bock 187 sports minimalist, class-A FET circuitry with a large Cinemag output transformer for rich bass and increased low-frequency headroom. A high max SPL of 125 dB and wide dynamic range make this mic ideal for full-sounding vocals, guitar, and more. The Bock 187 includes a premium wooden storage case for protecting your studio investment.
Note: The Bock 187 requires 48V phantom power to function.
Add a Handmade Masterpiece to your Mic Locker
The UA Bock 187 is David Bock’s inspired take on the U87 microphones he studied and maintained as chief technical engineer of the world’s top recording studios for two decades. Handbuilt at UA’s Custom Shop in Santa Cruz, California, the UA Bock 187 mic gives you the golden unit tone of an iconic studio staple.
Capture Classic Sounds, with Modern Flexibility
Vintage U87 mics are known for their presence, but can get strident when pushed. The UA Bock 187 enhances this classic design with a larger transformer, refined circuitry, and a unique fat mode that delivers a boost between 10 and 400 Hz. This translates into more dynamic range, presence, and fullness on vocals, guitars, and more.
