This may be the cheapest Neumann ever, but rest assured those crafty Germans didn't skimp on sound quality! I chose it not because it's "cheap" (relatively speaking), but because this particular microphone works wonders on my voice and I prefer it to all others I've tried, including the more expensive Neumanns.

The Neumann TLM 102 is without a doubt one of the finest vocal microphones on the market, and it is still priced within reach for amateurs! Fantastic!

There is one caveat though: this microphone seems to be tailored to MALE voices first and foremost.

Sure, you can record female voices and guitars and fiddles and whatnot, and they'll all sound really good. This is after all a high-end microphone with a superb sound quality!

But as all mics, it has a specific *character* of its own. The character of the TLM 102 is such that it gives male voices a subtle presence lift that makes them sound a little crisper and more focused. It's not perfectly neutral, it's *better* than neutral! Neumann knows their stuff!

However, on female voices, that same presence boost is just wrong somehow. It doesn't make them sound bad exactly, but it does them no particular favors either. You'll likely end up "fixing" the sound with a tiny bit of EQ. The result will still be quite good, so it's not a total disaster.

But ideally you want a microphone to have just the right character to begin with, so I'd pick something else if recording female singers was the priority. For instance, my wife really likes what Audio Technica does to her voice, so you might want to start looking in that direction if you're mainly recording girls...

This Neumann microphone is MINE though, and I love it to bits! My voice never sounded this good!

The Rycote vibration damping mount does the job, and the Rycote pop filter is among the best in the market - quite effective at reducing pop sounds, while being very neutral and not affecting the sound (the same can't be said of all pop filters). Also, it mounts directly to the damping mount and doesn't droop like many others do.

I would have bought these accessories anyway, and this set practically gives them away for free, since it's almost the price of the microphone alone. A no-brainer!


Some general vocal recording advice:

1. The very best sound is obtained when you aren't too close to the pop filter, otherwise the puffs of air create audible turbulence when they hit the filter. A big-membrane microphone like this generally works best with some air between it and the sound source anyway, so this requirement makes little difference.

2. Hang the microphone "upside down" on the boom. This gives the singer more room to move the hands freely under the microphone. This helps a lot, because many singers can't sing well without flailing their arms around wildly (myself being one of them). Plus there's more room for lyrics sheets and such.

3. Dampen the walls (and ceiling!) of your recording room acoustically. Small rooms don't have usable "acoustics" that sweeten the sound, they only have troublesome reflexes and resonances, and the more you deaden them the better the recording will sound.
