Hey guys,

Following my own experience of building DIY U87 microphones and various other pieces of gear, I've decided to offer a complete solution to help beginners get started with DIY audio without the need to scavenge for parts or read through endless forum posts in order to build a great sounding piece of gear with your own hands.

The kits will include all the necessary parts to complete the mic from A to Z with a detailed step-by-step guide, a circuit layout and a bill of materials (including parts by trusted members of this forum).

Yuzu 87 FET Mic Kit: (4 Kits Left In Stock)
Price: £600 + shipping and VAT if applicable

Complete kit includes:
  • 1 x Microphone Body - with XLR connector
  • 1 x Shock Mount - with thread adapter
  • 1 x K87-style Capsule (Heiserman HK87)
  • 1 x BV13-style Transformer (AMI T13)
  • 3 x PCBs (Vintage Microphone PCB Kit D-87M)
  • 3 x Toggle Switches
  • All other semiconductors and passive components
Quick unboxing video to showcase the kit contents:

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks!

Looks great, and you've got a great looking site. Noticed mention of a 67 kit coming in the future—be sure to let me know when that happens!

Really does look great and certainly a step up from some similar offerings! Looking forward to the traffo options as well as the 67 kit!
Will you be doing any matching and/or discounting for pairs?

Exactly the kind of kit I wish I had found when I started building mics myself as well!

No valve U47 in the foreseeable future but I’ll keep that idea in mind!

U47 tube would be great or even the 47 fet.
Curious why all the hiragana/katakana on the site.
I know yuzu is an Asian citrus fruit?

At least you went for something cool and interesting instead of the typical branding of 'Zen' so many companies use.
I'm probably going to grab one of those 87 kits when I clear some of my backlog of projects.

I ordered one of these two days ago. I can't wait. . . ( ! )

UPDATE:
So, I ordered on Aug. 8th in the evening, and it was delivered on the 11th in the evening. That was FAST! I didn't expect that. I might not start this project 'till September because its too hot for me to even think right now, but I'll be updating you guys. I opened the package today, and everything looks wonderful!
