The TLM102 embodies everything you'd expect from a large-diaphragm Neumann studio mic — except the price!
The most affordable Neumann studio vocal mic yet - a large-diaphragm, transformerless capacitor microphone with a fixed-cardioid polar pattern.
Though it looks similar to other Neumann's, it is significantly smaller than the likes of the U87.
It weighs around 260g, has a diameter of 52mm, and a length of just 116mm.
Gives you that Neumann sound in a very affordable package!
Stylish design, beautifully made.
Neumann have compromised on some aspects of the design, compared to their more expensive mics, but in doing so they have managed to produce a microphone that retains the sound quality that is ubiquitous with the name.
Based around a newly developed large-diaphragm capsule capable of tolerating SPLs up to 144dB (0.5 percent distortion), the TLM102 is suitable for use not only with vocals but also instruments such as drums, brass instruments and guitar amplifiers.
Frequency range: 20Hz to 20kHz (-3dB) Nominally flat up to 6kHz before a gentle presence rise kicks in.
Excellent condition, with shockmount.
