One of the most popular performance microphones around, the SM87 stands out because of the special lovin' it gives vocals. A three-stage pop filter virtually eliminates breath and wind noise, while a three-point shock mount takes care of any thumps, clunks and shrieks which might occur while you're messing around with the stand. With all this excess noise prevention, there's nothing to distract from your golden-throated brilliance.
