Anyone have any idea about this mic? According to the Neumann website 'it is an exclusive version with unique product features'.
Many thanks

The, now discontinued, "Anniversary Edition" was the same as a standard U87Ai - it had a special finish and was supplied in a case with elastic suspension, special pop filter and mic. cover.

The pop filter was a copy of the one the Beatles used at Abbey Road, but Neumann didn't have access to the original.  The copy, I think, only had a single screen, whereas the original had a double screen.

I hope I have remembered this correctly.

As I recently used one of these microphones, I can confirm John's description of the mic and its accessories, though I don't recall specifically the details on the pop filter other than it was similar at first glance to pictures I've seen of the Abbey Road version.
