NEUMANN MICROPHONES - Studio - Large diaphragm, condenser
Neumann large-diaphragm microphones are renowned their quality when used for professional and semi-professional recording and broadcast applications. This range of microphones have either fixed or variable polar patterns to suit microphone positioning and the pick-up pattern required.
Available in nickel and black, this pressure-gradient, large diaphragm, cardioid, condenser microphone has been designed for applications where a high quality, cardioid, microphone is required, but at a lower price point than variable-pattern types. The capsule has been derived from the popular U 87 Ai and is 'acoustically well-balanced' and often preferred for vocal recording, broadcast announcing, or for instruments such as wind, strings, percussion and overhead drum positioning. A frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz is offered, with a flat frequency response up to 5 kHz and a wide, flat, presence boost of 4dB above that. A wire mesh protects the capsule as well as offers resistance to plosives and pop noises. A Neumann SG 2 swivel mount is included for use with a compatible microphone stand. The microphone has a 3-pin XLR connector and requires +48V phantom power.
Optional accessories: SG 2 swivel mount (1x included), EA 1 elastic suspension, EA 1 MT elastic suspension, WS 82 windshield.
These sets include the TLM 103 or TLM 103 MT microphone together with an EA 1 or EA 1 MT elastic suspension mount.
Note: The SG 2 swivel mount is not included in these sets.
This black, large diaphragm, cardioid, condenser microphone is aimed at professional and semi-professional recording of vocals and instruments where close-positioning to high sound pressure levels is required, having a capability of handling sound pressure levels up to 140dB without distortion. It is supplied in a wooden box along with Neumann SG 2 swivel mount. A wire mesh grille protects the capsule as well as offers resistance to plosives and pop noises. The microphone has a 3-pin XLR connector and requires +48V phantom power.
Optional accessories: SG 2 swivel mount (1x included), EA 1 MT elastic suspension, WS 89 windshield.
This microphone is a Neumann classic best-seller and is available in either nickel or black. The polar pattern is variable; omni directional, cardioid and figure-of-eight patterns can be set using a switch located below the mesh grille. There are also switches to apply 10dB attenuation and LF roll-off to frequencies below 1kHz. Applications include 'spot' placement for instruments such as wind, string, piano and percussion, 'overhead miking', and vocal recording. The U87 Ai is capable of handling sound pressure levels up to 127dB without distortion. The microphone has a 3-pin XLR connector and requires +48V phantom power. It is supplied in wooden box.
Optional accessories: EA 87 elastic suspension, EA 87 MT elastic suspension, WS 87 windshield.
These sets include the U 87 or U 87 MT microphone together with an EA 87 or EA 87 MT elastic suspension mount.
With similar shape to the U 87 Ai, but a little smaller, the U 89 I is available in nickel or black. Five polar patterns, omni directional, wide cardioid, cardioid, hyper-cardioid and figure-of-eight are available to suit most studio applications, such as instrument 'spot' pick-up and voice reproduction. This versatile microphone offers a frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz with the option of a two-stage, LF roll-off filter to reduce frequencies below 80Hz or 160Hz. Use of the 6dB attenuator switch takes the maximum sound level, for 0.5% THD to 140dB - more than the peak sound pressure level immediately in front of a trumpet. The microphone has a 3-pin XLR connector and requires +48V phantom power. It is supplied in wooden box.
