A frontrunner in the pro audio scene for decades, Neumann is a name that can be found in well-equipped recording studios everywhere. Neumann focuses almost exclusively on microphones, delivering gear that's the envy of the competition. If you want to make a good impression on artists who walk into your studio, Neumann microphones are a sure sign that you mean business. Naturally, that first impression will be backed up by outstanding recording quality. Neumann has racked up its fair share of awards for its technical achievements, and the uncompromising performance of Neumann microphones has long made them a favorite of leading musicians. Even the Beatles trusted their recordings to Neumann, followed up by a steady stream of artists that's included Natalie Cole, Celine Dion, Bryan Adams and Beyoncé.
The right Neumann microphone for you will depend on your needs. For example, if it's a high-end stage mic you're after, the KMS 105 could be for you. Its four-layer acoustic filter does a great job of cutting out unwanted noise, and the clarity is unparalleled for vocals and instruments. For outfitting a studio, Neumann really comes into its own with tons of microphones to choose from. Consider the TLM 49, for instance. This condenser studio mic sounds every bit as amazing as it looks.
