    Should a Neumann TLM 193 be this dark?

    I owned this mic in 1998 for a while and bought one again in 2014. I always thought it was good, plus it allowed investment in Neumann technology, which was otherwise well outside my budget - and still is. However, I find it extremely dark on vox (and instruments) and am certain a mic of this...

    Neumann TLM 102-103

    Hello, I am going to buy a microphone for the voice, just have to choose between Neumann's TLM 102 and TLM 103. Any suggestion? Are them suitable also to record brass instruments, or the TLM 107 would be better? Thank you. Gpp

    Neumann/Gefell GNM14 mic

    Hi all, My first post here at Nice to meet you! I was given a broken vintage Neumann mic a while back and fixed it recently. It is an M14: a gooseneck mic complete with PS and impedance converter. The sound is heaven, and it's very quiet. I'm hoping anyone out there has some...
