Neumann studio quality at an entry level price. Includes the transformerless circuit found in numerous Neumann microphones, with low self-noise and high sound pressure level transmission.
Cardioid pattern and acoustically well-balanced. Ideal for vocals (including spoken word) and a variety of instrumental duties.
TLM103 is addressed from the front, marked with the red Neumann logo on the microphone body. The K 103 large diaphragm capsule is based on the K 87, 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.
