Description

The Neumann TLM 103 offers the same stunning sound as the classic Neumann U87 in a more compact, affordable package. Featuring a universal cardioid pattern, straightforward handling, and extremely low self-noise level, this large diaphragm condenser mic is perfect for home recording, professional broadcasting and commercial recording studios.

This anniversary edition includes an EA-1 elastic suspension and aluminum briefcase.

CLASSIC NEUMANN DESIGN

The TLM 103 utilizes Neumann’s legendary transformerless circuit—found in classic microphones such as the M 149, TLM 49 and TLM 107—to achieve the lowest self-noise of any microphone in its class.

The TLM 103 is equipped with Neumann’s coveted K 103 capsule, which is modeled after the K87 capsule used in the U67 and U87 microphones. The K 103 capsule delivers a flat frequency response up to 5 kHz, with a wide, flat 4 dB presence boost on the top-end.

EVERYTHING YOU WANT, NOTHING YOU DON’T

The cardioid pickup pattern provides optimum sound rejection—making the TLM 103 ideal for recording vocals in untreated rooms. The large wire mesh grille reduces plosive sounds and prevents pop noises without resorting to corrective resonance effects.

Off-axis sounds are rendered naturally while isolation is increased. This also leads to a high feedback suppression when the microphone is used in live situations or when recording in front of studio monitors.

Capable of handling signals up to 138 dB SPL, the TLM 103 is perfect for recording loud instruments like guitar cabs, heavy-hitting drummers, and brass.

TLM LEGACY

The letters TLM stand for "transformerless microphone". With TLM technology, the standard output transformer is replaced by an electronic circuit. As with traditional transformers, this ensures superior common mode rejection, and prevents RF interference that may influence the signal.

The Neumann TLM 103 includes an SG 1 shock mount and woodbox carrying case.

Features:

  • Sound design inspired by the legendary U 87
  • Broad presence boost, perfect for demanding vocal and instrumental recordings
  • Extremely low self-noise, captures even the faintest nuances
