Product Description

The Neumann TLM103 Anniversary is the ideal large diaphragm microphone for all professional and semi-professional applications requiring the utmost in sound quality on a limited budget. This special Anniversary Set includes the Neumann EA1 shock mount and a deluxe aluminum case.

By utilizing the tried and true transformerless circuit found in numerous Neumann microphones, the TLM103 features yet unattained low self-noise and the highest sound pressure level transmission. The capsule, derived from that used in the U87, has a cardioid pattern, is acoustically well- balanced and provides extraordinary attenuation of signals from the rear.

Neumann TLM103 Features

  • Large diaphragm cardioid microphone
  • Pressure-gradient transducer with one-diaphragm capsule
  • Transformerless circuitry
  • Extremely low noise: 7 dB-A v
  • Straightforward handling for homerecording and professional studios
  • High-quality professional equipment for limited budgets
  • Includes shock mount and deluxe aluminum case
Neumann TLM103 Applications
Due to the universal cardioid pattern, straightforward handling, extremely low self-noise level, and finally, the price, the TLM103 is predestined for all demanding applications from home recording to professional broadcasting and commercial recording studios.

Application Hints
  • A universal cardioid mic
  • Vocalist recording
  • Announcer's mic for broadcasting/voice over
  • Due to minimal self-noise:
    • On-air mic for radio/broadcast
    • Very low amplitude signals
    • Radio drama
    • Sampling
    • Foley/sound effects
  • Home recording and project studios
  • Spot mic for:
    • Wind instruments
    • Strings
    • Percussion
    • Guitar amps
    • Drum overhead
These are just some of the most common applications. Neumann recommends additional experimentation to gain maximum use from this microphone.

Polar Pattern
The TLM103 is equipped with a large diaphragm capsule with cardioid pattern. By focusing on this pattern, used in most recording situations, the attenuation of unwanted rear sound has been optimized. Off-axis sounds are rendered naturally while isolation is increased. This also leads to a high feedback suppression when the microphone is used in live situations or where loudspeaker playback is a factor.

Acoustic Features
The TLM103 is addressed from the front, marked with the red Neumann logo on the microphone body. The K103 large diaphragm capsule is based on the K87, well known from the U67 / U87 microphones.The capsule has a flat frequency response up to about 5 kHz, and above that, a wide flat 4 dB presence boost.

The large wire mesh headgrille protects the capsule from plosive sounds and effectively prevents pop noises. These characteristics are achieved without resorting to corrective resonance effects.

Therefore, the microphone maintains an excellent impulse response and reproduces the finest details of music and speech without coloration.

Electrical Features
With just 7 dB-A / 17.5 dB CCIR the self-noise level of the TLM 103 is so reduced that even the smallest signals are reproduced basically noise-free. As it is capable of handling sound pressure levels up to 138 dB without distortion, the TLM103 provides a dynamic range of 131 dB, according to DIN/IEC 651. The letters TLM stand for transformerless microphone. 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.

Operational Safety
The entire internal construction is elastically mounted to attenuate any structure borne noise that could interfere with the TLM103's operation. Furthermore the capsule is set on an elastic mount. The frequency range reaches below 20 Hz and thus even very low bass signals are reproduced without coloration.

Pick me and Bass,
What is your opinion of this product?
The 103 definitely has the Neuman Sound in the midbass they’re famous for, top was a little hyped but manageable with some eq or a frequency selectable de-essor. The shock-mount worked great at keeping floor vibration out of the cap, it’s worth the extra to get the whole kit.

Great Mic at a great value!
The microphone showed up and immediately I had to test it out. I use it primarily for vocal recording and the vocals turn very warm an crisp at the same time. I recommend this microphone for anyone who loves great vocal recording.
It's crisp clean sound is great!
This microphone couldn't be easier to use!
Very warm and crisp!
Your general opinion of this product.
I highly recommend it for anyone that does vocal recording. I haven't tried it with instrument recording yet, but I'm quite positive it'll get the results needed!

Great Mic, Worse shock mount ever
Mic Yes, Mount No!!!!!!!
The sound quality was amazing, i mean pristine. I would add a 1300 dolar mic shock mount not some cheap made junk. I spent 11 months savings to fight with a stupid mount. I have owned 2 of these so They both have the same problem
I have been a Engineer for a few years, a berklee school of music grad and a professional songwriter, so I am super familiar with Neumann products. I was shocked at how cheaply made the shock mount was. I saved for 11 months for this mic and and while I was trying to sing in it, the shock mount kept sliping lower and lower. for a 1300 bucks I was shocked that the mounts were cheaper than a MXL or a Rode.
Beautiful warm tones. i recorded a mandolin and a banjo in a warm acoustic blend at the same time with a cheap presonus preamp and it was amazing

This mic will improve the quality of your recordin
Your general opinion of this product.


QUALITY:
This piece is a work of art. Don't go by the other guy that said the quality is "ok".

FEATURES:
It's a straight cardiod mic...no pad or high pass switch. I have those on my preamp anyway, so I don't need the extra expense those features would incur.

EASE OF USE:
It's easy to get a good sound going with this thing; just make sure the source/room sound good.

VALUE:
You get what you pay for, so I'd have to say it's a great value. It's a reasonable price to pay for world class sound.

SOUND:
The best feature of this mic is it's high resolution sound reproduction. It's clear as a bell, yet has loads of character...what could only be characterized as "Neumann Magic".

STYLE:
originals:rock, pop, folk, country

MUSIC EXPERIENCE:
27 years as a guitarist/singer/songwriter/home recordist

OVERALL:
I've had one before, and I have owned a Rode Classic, and
