Neumann TLM 102 Nickel

Like its more expensive siblings, the TLM 102 combines technical excellence with a beautifully balanced sound for silky vocals, crisp guitars and powerful drums. With its cardioid pattern and an integrated pop screen the TLM 102 is a joy to use, even for novices.


The TLM 102 sounds as smart as it looks! Its newly developed large diaphragm condenser capsule has all the qualities that made Neumann microphones the first choice in recording studios all over the world: a clear and focused sound with superb definition. Due to its remarkably linear response across the entire midrange, the TLM 102 is able to capture the authentic character of any voice or instrument, enhanced by a slight lift around 10 kHz for silky highs. The TLM 102 has gorgeous bottom end, too, enriched by the well-controlled proximity effect of a large diaphragm cardioid capsule.


The TLM 102’s technical performance is impressive, too. Its self-noise of only 12 dB-A is much lower than the ambient noise in even a very quiet room. At the same time, the TLM 102 is capable of handling extreme sound pressure levels of up to 144 dB free from distortion. As a member of the TLM range, the TLM 102 is equipped with a transformerless output stage, which means: powerful bass, even at highest signal levels, and a very direct sound without transmission losses.

Magazine Reviews
Sound on Sound, January 2010 "This may be Neumann's least expensive mic of this type, but there's nothing about the sound that says 'budget'. Most people will use it as a vocal mic, but the excellent results I achieved using it on my guitar amp came as a pleasant surprise." Recording Hacks, April 2010 "This little brother shares the family magic while bringing its own strengths to the fore. Recommended, without reservation." Mix Magazine, March 2010 "he TLM 102 opens a new world to project recording, offering Neumann quality and sound at a reasonable price."
