Neumann TLM 102 Nickel

The Neumann TLM 102 Nickel is impressive in terms of sound. The interior is a newly developed large-diaphragm capsule (cardioid) with a maximum sound pressure level of 144 dB, which permits the recording of percussion, drums, amps and other very loud sound sources Instruments that are not especially loud also benefit from the very fast transient response of the Neumann TLM 102.

However its most important applications are in the realm of vocals and speech; a slight boost above 6 kHz provides for excellent presence of the voice in the overall mix. Up to 6 kHz the frequency response is extremely linear, ensuring minimal coloration and a clearly defined bass range. The capsule has an elastic suspension for the suppression of structure-borne noise. A pop screen integrated into the grille serves to suppress plosives in vocal and speech recording.

The Neumann TLM 102 Nickel is ideal for the home recording and project studio sector, as well as for the broadcasting area, especially when clear lines of sight to the speakers are a priority.

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."
