With the TLM 102, the Berlin microphone manufacturer Neumann is defining a new generation of studio microphones. This applies not only to the design of the microphone but also to the price.
The reduced overall size contributes to an exceptionally compact appearance, which unites all of the typical design components of a Neumann microphone. The harmonious proportions and gleaming grille ring ensure that even at first glance, the TLM 102 attracts attention.
The TLM 102 is impressive in terms of sound: In the interior is a newly developed large-diaphragm capsule (cardioid) with a maximum sound pressure level of 144 dB which permits the recording of percussion, drums, amps and other very loud sound sources, for example. However the most important applications are in the realm of vocals and speech; a slight boost above 6 kHz provides for excellent presence of the voice in the overall mix.
