Step up the quality of your studio vocal recordings with this B&H Kit, which includes the nickel Neumann TLM-102 large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone, a Rycote InVision shockmount and pop filter system, a multilayer studio isolation filter, a tripod mic stand that holds the mic and the reflection filter, and a balanced XLR microphone cable. With sonic benefits such as minimized pickup of off-axis reflections, attenuated vocal plosives, and reduced transfer of vibrations, the kit is ideal for singers, rappers, voice actors, narrators, podcasters, and more.
Neumann TLM 102 Large-Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Nickel)
Bundled with a space-saving stand mount, the nickel Neumann TLM 102 large-diaphragm condenser microphone brings renowned Neumann sound quality to a price point that's inclusive to home producers, working musicians, and independent singer-songwriters. The capsule's high SPL rating of 144 dB permits the recording of percussion, drums, amplifiers, and other loud sound sources clearly and without distortion. With its 8 to 12 kHz treble boost, the TLM 102 imparts a silky vocal presence while avoiding pronounced sibilance.
The mic utilizes a cardioid polar pattern to provide directional sound pickup in front of the capsule and strong rejection behavior behind it, yielding less background noise than most other polar responses. The integrated pop shield reduces breath noise and vocal plosives, though external pop filters are available for even more control. The TLM 102's transformerless output stage aids the mic in achieving a clean character with plenty of reach in the bass range, and it delivers resistance to electromagnetic interference.

Rycote InVision Studio Kit with USM
The Rycote InVision Studio Kit with USM is a complete suspension and pop filter system which combines the InVision Studio Universal Shockmount and Universal Pop Filter in one convenient package—everything you need to capture professional radio-ready recordings free from pops and noise.
The shockmount supports any microphone with a diameter of 18 to 55 mm and weighing up to 1.65 lb. The patented vibration-resistant Lyre mount helps to reduce capsule and cable-borne noise and controlled tests at Rycote's factory show that it provides up to twice the isolation of traditional microphone suspension systems.
The pop filter is made with a custom mesh that attenuates frequencies up to 20 dB and is designed to reduce or eliminate pops caused by "b" and "p" plosives in vocal performances. Unlike other pop filters, this one causes no audible high-frequency loss, keeping the integrity and clarity of the original sound produced by your microphone.
With its universal screw clamp, the InVision pop filter not only works with the InVision USM but is designed to fit any universal shockmount with diameters between 1/8 and 1/2". When the time comes, the mesh filter is replaceable helping to maintain a clean, hygienic studio and the ergonomic frame is designed for comfort so you can focus on the performance and not on what's in front of you.

Warm Audio Premier Series Balanced XLR Cable (15')
Presented here with a cable length of 15'', this Warm Audio Premier Series XLR Cable is designed to provide a high-end connection between balanced gear with XLR jacks, such as microphones, outboard equipment, and interface-to-monitoring connections. If you care about the details of your sound onstage and in the studio, use this cable to preserve your signal.
This XLR cable is chock-full of features that enable a top-of-the-line performance, such as gold-plated connectors and a star-quad wiring scheme for superior RFI rejection in the balancing process. Double-Ruessen shielding helps protect against EMI, and a braided outer wrap fights against tangling. To guarantee an optimal performance, Warm Audio partnered with Gotham AG, one of Switzerland's best producers of premium cable.

Braided Premier Wrap
Star Quad Explained
Star-quad construction takes that concept even further by using five cores instead of three. Two cores are provided each for the positive and negative legs, as well as a single ground. This helps to further shield the audio from RFI (radio frequency interference), ensuring an even better performance.
Double-Ruessen Shielding Explained
Double-Ruessen shielding goes further than more traditional techniques in two ways: First, the cable is wrapped with two separate shields. Secondly, the outer shield is wrapped in a contrary direction to the inner shield, creating a stronger and more complete barrier from EMI for the internal cores.
Auray RF-C20 Studio Isolation Filter (Red Composite, Metal Back)
The red composite, metal back RF-C20 Studio Isolation Filter from Auray provides a solution for music producers, broadcasters, and podcasters looking to help isolate a microphone and achieve better recordings in a space that is less than ideal for capturing audio. The Auray Studio Isolation Filter makes capturing clean, dry vocals or instrument recordings sound more natural with less sonic coloration.
The RF-C20 fits on a medium- to heavy-duty microphone stand and uses a rugged aluminum mesh frame, four-layers of acoustic treatment, a vented metal back, plus a layer of acoustic composite fiber to absorb unwanted ambient noise and control acoustic reflections. In a nutshell, if your recording vocals, voiceovers, or podcasts in an untreated room with hard surfaces, the RF-C20 provides advanced microphone isolation for better-sounding results.
