The Neumann TLM 103 Anniversary condenser microphone is a premium recording tool designed for professional studios. This large-diaphragm mic reproduces the full spectrum of sound with striking realism thanks to its wide, flat frequency response and presence boost. With an ultra-low noise floor and high-SPL capacity, it captures the subtlest details as well as the loudest transients without distortion.

Pristine Recordings With Minimal Noise

The TLM 103 Anniversary's transformerless circuitry yields an incredibly low self-noise level, enabling it to reproduce even the quietest sounds with stunning clarity. Its high 138dB SPL capacity also means it can handle loud sound-pressure levels without distortion for a 131dB dynamic range. This allows you to record everything from gentle vocals to screaming guitars with lifelike realism.

Tailored Polar Pattern Rejects Unwanted Sounds

The TLM 103 Anniversary features a cardioid polar pattern that is highly focused in front of the mic while attenuating sounds from the sides and rear. This helps isolate the source you want to record and minimizes unwanted room ambience and feedback. The polar pattern provides natural off-axis sound and a high degree of feedback suppression for live-recording situations.

Roadworthy Design With Premium Components

Neumann built the TLM 103 Anniversary to demanding standards for professional use. Its capsule is derived from the renowned U87 and set in an elastic suspension mount within an elastically mounted internal structure to prevent unwanted vibration and handling noise. A durable aluminum flight case and included EA 1 elastic suspension shockmount provide further protection. Premium components like the heavy-duty mesh grille and gold-plated XLR connector ensure longevity.

Extended Low End Captures Full-Range Audio

With a frequency range extending down to 20Hz, the TLM 103 Anniversary captures an exceptionally broad range of audio, including deep bass. This extended low-end response, combined with its high-SPL capacity and low noise, allows it to reproduce the full spectrum of sound for highly transparent recordings across any source.
