Wolfgang Fraissinet, President of Marketing and Sales, explains: “Visually, the entire set is very impressive due to the combination of polished nickel parts with the traditional Neumann matte nickel look. The set will definitely increase in value over the years”. It includes a dust cover embroidered with the anniversary logo, and a pair of white gloves with which to handle this valuable equipment.
The “U 87 and You” campaign was recently launched in order to celebrate the anniversary. Those who provide a personal answer to the question “What do you associate with the U 87?” in the form of a short video message (max. 30 seconds), sent via e-mail or MMS to My-U87-Message @ neumann.com by December 31, 2007, have the chance to win a unique prize: A draw will be held among the 87 most interesting entries, for the prize of a trip to Neumann Berlin (travel and hotel costs included), providing an in-depth insight into the secrets of development and manufacture of the U 87 and all of the other legendary Neumann microphones. Of course there will also be ample time for sightseeing in the constantly changing metropolis.
