The Neumann TLM 103 large-diaphragm cardioid condenser mic boasts a capsule drawn from the U 87 and transformerless circuitry – not to mention classic Neumann sound!
The TLM 103 is a great mic for any pro or project studio use and, due to its minimal self-noise, it’s been used for classical recordings with a wide dynamic range, sampling (especially for very low amplitude sources), and Foley work.
This mic is also robust enough for the live stage, as Jack White has employed the TLM 103 to mic amps in live situations.
The TLM 103 is available in satin nickel and matte black. Delivery includes an SG 1 metal swivel mount and a wooden jeweler’s box.
