Excellent for acoustic instruments....
15.03.2017
Having previously owned the TLM103 and knowing how good that mic was I was not sure whether the TLM102 would work for me. Having used them on several recording sessions I can now say that I am more than happy with the sound from these microphones. I'm sure there are many applications for them however my particular interest is in recording acoustic (folk) instruments in as clear a manner possible. I had tried several of the AKG large diaphragm microphones (AKG C3000 and AKG P220) and was not completely happy with the colouring of the sound and decided to try the TLM102's as a half way between the AKG's and the more expensive TLM103. As I needed 2 mics, cost was important which is why I opted for the TLM102's. I can't be happier with the decision and I hope this helps someone else who may have a similar application/requirement.

One of the drawbacks of these microphones is that they are incredibly sensitive which is great but this means that the recording environment needs to be very quiet and it also took a few attempts to get the best mic positioning to avoid unwanted room noise and also unwanted bleed from other instruments. I don't have the facility to completely isolate sounds within the studio so this took some testing to find out what could work and what was simply not possible without a recording booth. It also presents a nice problem when mixing as you can really hear the difference in the clean sound which subsequently makes mixing much more straightforward. I'd strongly recommend these microphones.

Best low budget condenser I had
22.08.2016
I checked threds on many discussion forums before I bought it and it has position feedback buy its users. For small recording studio it is great mic with great built quality. It has neutral sound and it works nice for voiceovers I usually record. Very low self-noise and good organic sound not so sterile like other ones I checked.

TLM 102
Minos K., 19.05.2019
Well what can I say?

This small mic WILL BLOW YOU MIND.
Have end up using it for vocals, brass instruments, guitars and bass cabs.... pretty much I use this mike all the time. Yes you can get a more versatile mic at this price range, but if you want the neumann sound and build quality you will not be disappointed. 5 stars!!

I like it so much I did a video review of the 102 with some audio samples.

A Great Microphone
KonstantinosM, 23.08.2016
The best mic on its price range, great for voice and various instruments.

Since I got it last year I have recorded 3 albums with it and used it in multiple other recordings. I used it so far on male and female (jazz, pop and classical) voices, classical and acoustic guitar, tube guitar amp and a steinway Piano and had always great results. It has very low self-noise and a natural but already "produced" sound that needs little or nothing to sit in the mix.

The only think I don't like is that it comes in a cardboard box, I would pay a little more for a nice wooden box that would make me feel safer when traveling around with it.
