More about the TLM 102

We developed the TLM 102 as an universal talent for vocal and instrumental recordings. Its finely tuned sound signature especially accents the area of 8 to 12 kilohertz which is crucial for human voices. The recordings get a silky elegance which is typical for large diaphragm microphones; the voice gets a noble presence in the overall mix. Suddenly, there’s a natural, organic separation between your vocal and your acoustic guitar, for example. Nevertheless, the TLM 102 remains easy to handle and deals masterfully with critical consonants or sibilants: It has an integrated pop shield.

 

High Volume? No Problem at All.

The TLM 102 also processes extreme volume and jumps in dynamics without distortion. That makes it an excellent choice for miking loud amps and drums. Our “baby” reproduces sound pressure levels of up to 144 dB (e.g. very loud trumpet at a distance of 10 cm) with great clarity: open, detailed, with powerful bass and refined treble.

Talking About the Price

The TLM 102 stands for legendary sound at an unheard of price. We remodeled the production and omitted rarely used functions (such as pattern, pad, and low cut switches). When you hear the TLM 102, you’ll immediately notice what we did not omit: the Neumann sound, which remains faithful to its big role models.

TLM: Clear Sound, Powerful Bass

Our TLM series works with a transformerless output stage. This means: a clean and direct sound, very “close” to the acoustic source, and a powerful bass transmission all the way down to the lowest frequencies. Its transformerless output stage also makes the microphone resistant to electromagnetic fields and minimizes transmission losses.

Features

  • Easy handling for vocal and instrumental recordings
  • Distortion-free sound even at extreme sound pressure levels
  • Slight treble boost for silky vocals (independent of music genre)
  • Built-in pop shield
  • Neumann quality at an affordable price

 

Applications
  • Vocal recordings in your home studio
  • Miscellaneous instrumental recordings, even with loud signal sources, such as amps, drums and wind instruments
  • Singer/Songwriter: great separation between acoustic guitar and vocal
  • Easy to position, even in tight spaces

Delivery Scope

The TLM 102 is available in nickel and black with a swivel mount. We also offer sets with a color-matching elastic suspension to protect the microphone against rumble and impact noise.

 

The swivel mount and elastic suspension serve to mount the microphone on a microphone stand. The microphone stand is not part of the delivery scope. An adapter for all common microphone stand threads is included.

What others say

Reviews

“... I couldn’t detect any compromises in the microphone’s performance.”
Review in SOUND ON SOUND

 

“Its sound image is transparent and very well-balanced; fresh, but not harsh. Bass response and the proximity effect are well-proportioned, and the mid range is free of coloration.”

Review in SOUND & RECORDING

 

 

“The TLM 102 is thus recommended as a true plug-and-play solution for home recording enthusiasts and aspiring pro mixers.”
