@neumann.berlin made a mic that’s affordable (for a Neumann) that has been through the ringer at our studio and I have to say that the TLM 102 is an amazing large diaphragm microphone for vocals and guitar. The recordings come through crisp and very well translated with minimal color partly due to the transformerless circuitry and flat frequency response from 20Hz - 20KHz.
With it also being able to handle up to 144dB max SPL you can really have anyone let loose without a single worry of distortion from the microphone itself. I would say even after hours of use it still sounds just like it did out of the box and would recommend it to any studio looking for a vocal workhorse! #neumann #tlm102 #microphone #condenser #studio #gear #audio #audioengineer
