The nickel TLM 103 from Neumann is a budget friendly, large diaphragm condenser microphone well suited for professional and semi-professional applications. The transformer-less circuit provides exceptional low self-noise and high sound pressure level transmission. Derived from the U87, the capsule features a cardioid pattern and is acoustically well-balanced with solid attenuation of signals from the rear. Off-axis sounds are rendered naturally, while isolation is increased leading to high feedback suppression when used in a live environment. The TLM 103's enclosure is in satin nickel with a large wire mesh head-grill that not only protects the capsule, but prevents plosives and pop noises without the need for a pop filter. The microphone delivers a flat frequency response up to 5 kHz, and above that, a wide, flat 4 dB presence boost. The 103 maintains an excellent impulse response and reproduces fine details in music and speech without coloration. The TLM 103 ships with the SG 1 swivel mount and a wooden jeweler's box.
