Neumann TLM 49 overview

  • 1Description

The TLM 49 Cardioid Studio Condenser Microphone from Neumann is a large-diaphragm studio microphone with a cardioid directional characteristic and a warm sound, optimized for vocal performance. It is supplied as a set, with an elastic suspension. The design is inspired by the Neumann M 49 and M 50 microphones of the 1950s. The "sound design" is also oriented toward that of the M 49 and the U 47. This microphone ensures low self-noise and the use of high gain levels.

The large-diaphragm capsule of the TLM 49 provides a cardioid directional characteristic with a tendency toward supercardioid, due to the capsule construction. Following the example of the M 49, high frequencies are more directional. The capsule diameter is 34mm. The capsule is oriented so that the microphone is addressed from the front.

The TLM 49 uses the K 47 capsule, which was also used in the M 49 and the U 47. The capsule has a linear frequency response up to the upper mid-range. Above 2 kHz there is a gentle presence boost up to 3 dB. The capsule is enclosed by a large microphone head grille, which is acoustically very open and is neutral with regard to the sound.

With TLM technology the usual output transformer is replaced by an electronic circuit. As with traditional transformers, it ensures good common mode rejection, and prevents RF interference that may influence the balanced audio signal. Noise signals which affect the balanced modulation line are effectively suppressed. The microphone can operate at sound pressure levels of up to 129 dB without distortion, and provides a dynamic range of 117 dB (A-weighted).

The entire interior structure is mounted elastically, to prevent the transmission of structure-borne noise. In addition, the capsule is mounted with a rubber shock mount. Due to the wide frequency response, the TLM 49 can also transmit low-frequency signals without coloration. The TLM 49 is supplied with the elastic suspension EA 3, which effectively protects the microphone from structure-borne noise.

    Neumann TLM 49 reviews

    TLM 49 Cardioid Studio Condenser Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great microphones make a difference I do not own one of these...yet. But I have rented one for the last two months, and I absolutely love it. I've used it primarily on acoustic guitar and male vocals, while recording a traditional Celtic music band. It makes the guitar sound great, big and exquisite. It has perfect reproduction through the frequency spectrum. I see no need for any EQ at all on tracks recorded with it. On vocals, it is less astounding, just because a voice doesn't have the frequency range of a guitar, but still on this particular vocalist, it's still very good. I wish I had several of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product, Im very happy. This mic is amazing in vocals. It has a balanced sound with deep low end and controlled silky highs. It works very fine even in acoustic guitars. Im impressed with the quality of the low frequencies, regardless, in the paper its characteristics are brilliant. Im very satisfied with the results when its connected through my avalon 737sp. Neumann is always guaranteed quality.
