Neumann TLM 102 overview

  • 1Description

Styled in a nickel finish, TLM-102 Large-Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone from Neumann is a large diaphragm condenser microphone operating in a cardioid polar pattern. It has the ability to withstand very high sound pressure levels.

The capsule, with its high SPL rating, permits the recording of percussion, drums, amplifiers, and other very loud sound sources. The microphone is equally capable when recording lower volume sounds due to its very fast transient response. However, its most important applications are in the realm of vocals and speech.

A slight boost above 6 kHz provides great vocal presence, while below 6 kHz the frequency response is extremely linear for minimal coloration and a clearly defined bass range. The capsule has an elastic suspension for minimizing structure-borne noise, while an integrated pop screen in the grille aids in suppressing plosives in vocal and speech recording.

    Neumann TLM 102 reviews

    TLM-102 Large-Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone (Studio Set, Nickel) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alright, not blown away I have been able to gather a fair bit of experience with this microphone using it for vocals and as a spot mic for brass and wood winds. The construction is solid, the shock mount might be one of my favorites of any shock mount I have used - apart from the plastic thread. It is manageable in size and open towards the front. The microphone is very compact and takes relatively high SPL without a pad (which it doesn't have) which makes it quite favorable for live applications. Sonically I don't find it to be quite what people would like it to be. I would describe the overall character as rather unexciting. It is not an overly bright microphone yet it can get slightly nasty and gritty in the top end, for example when used on trumpet. Voice overs / vocals are being recorded with solid body yet with a rather steril character - the midrange always seems a little bit dull to me. The low-end reproduction is solid yet tight. In a direct VO comparisons having this microphone, a TLM 103 and U87i right next to each other (recorded simultaneously through identical preamps) I found the TLM 102 to be the most uninspiring of the three. The U87 literally sounded dark compared to the other two, but it yields a throaty, lively, open and mid-forward character that just sounds right on about any voice and many instruments. The TLM 103 sounded similarly dynamic to me yet way brighter and sibilant overall. The TLM 102 was a bit darker than it's TLM brother, noticeably inferior in all other respects to me though. I would recommend this microphone as a utility-type mic, in my opinion the expectations the purchase of this my-first-Neumann type microphone raises aren't fully met. Within this price bracket and choosing from current microphones I would rather buy an Audio Technica AT4040 or AT4050 which are solid performers and happen to be cheaper as well. As a point of reference: I have been working in recording professionally for 10+ years, currently specializing in tracking (studio), mixing and location recordings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT product - the TLM 102 I'm using the TLM 102 for home studio recording of vocals. Even though the studio is not specially treated, the TLM 102 does an excellent job. Its relatively puny physical size is NO indication of how excellently it performs. It feeds my Golden Age Pre 73 MKII, and the sound is to my fullest satisfaction. And the swift and careful shipping of B&H deserves a double measure of compliments, too.
