U87 grill/headbasket
« on: October 18, 2021, 09:20:24 AM »

Hello! I did a quick search of the forum and couldn’t find the answer to this question - my apologies if it’s been covered before.

I recently purchased an early 80s vintage U87. It sounds beautiful, but has been pretty beaten up through its life :)

Neumann sells replacement grills/headbaskets (at an exorbitant price) for the 87ai. Will this fit my pre-1986 U87?

Yes, it will. No issues.

Thank you! I’ve researched the forum for directions on safely removing the head shell, so should be in good shape.

For everyone else interested in looking under the hood:

On relatively new heads make sure you observe Neumann's warranty coverage (one year) before you remove the wax seal and open the head.
