Neumann TLM 103 Microphone Studio Set
The Neumann TLM 103 is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone that features a universal cardioid pattern and an extremely low self-noise level and a EA4 suspension mount.

The TLM 103 is the ideal large-diaphragm microphone for all professional and semi-professional applications requiring the utmost in sound quality on a limited budget. By utilizing the tried and true transformerless circuit found in numerous Neumann microphones, the TLM 103 features yet unattained low self-noise and the highest sound pressure level transmission. The capsule, derived from that used in the U 87, has a cardioid pattern, is acoustically well-balanced and provides extraordinary attenuation of signals from the rear. Delivery includes an EA4 suspension mount.

Features:

  • Large-diaphragm cardioid microphone
  • Pressure gradient transducer with with one-diaphragm capsule
  • Transformerless circuitry
  • Extremely low noise: 7 dB-A
  • Includes swivel mount
  • Straightforward handling for home recording and professional studios
  • High-quality professional equipment for limited budgets
  • EA4 suspension mount

    Applications
    Due to the universal cardioid pattern, straightforward handling, extremely low self-noise level, and finally, the price, the TLM 103 is predestined for all demanding applications from home recording to professional broadcasting and commercial recording studios.

    Polar Pattern
    The TLM 103 is equipped with a large-diaphragm capsule with cardioid pattern. By focusing on this pattern -- used in most recording situations -- the attenuation of unwanted rear sound has been optimized. 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 where loudspeaker playback is a factor.

    Acoustic
    The TLM 103 is addressed from the front, marked with the red Neumann logo on the microphone body. The K 103 large-diaphragm capsule is based on the K 87, well known from the U 67 / U 87 microphones.The capsule has a flat frequency response up to about 5 kHz, and above that, a wide flat 4 dB presence boost.

    The large wire mesh headgrille protects the capsule from plosive sounds and effectively prevents pop noises. These characteristics are achieved without resorting to corrective resonance effects

    Therefore, the microphone maintains an excellent impulse response and reproduces the finest details of music and speech without coloration.
