A world of its own! Neumann TLM 49
22.07.2016
After reading, checking forums and researching, I pulled the trigger and got this big baby! I have previously recorded with this mic in several professional broadcast studios in Berlin and Bonn, so I have an idea how my voice sounds doing voiceover and radio work, but not singing.

After connecting the mic to my RME UCX builtin mic preamp, I noticed that the output from the mic was not as hot as it is with my other condenser mics, nevertheless I was blown away with the way this mic responded to my voice. I tend to occupy a wide dynamic range when singing, and this mic was sweet, warm and intimate with the whispers, and had that crisp tone, details and definition when singing flamenco-like screams. I seriously do not understand why and how people trashed this mic in some forums.
My experience was nothing but great. Put that mic in front of a serious performer and you'll understand why Neumann consider this a vocal mic. One thing however, the shock mount doesn't seem to hold the mic well. And I need to over tighten the screw which does not seem right considering the amazing build quality of this mic. I am planning to contact thomann team if the issue persists.

Highly recommended microphone. If you are looking for a high quality vocal microphone, get it. But remember it is NOT the mic, it is you, your talent and the music that flows through you!

Cheers and happy recording everyone

Amazing Vocal Mic
29.01.2016
Amazing mic specially in vocals. We did some comparison between TLM 49 , U87 and modified MXL 990. U87 is the best but very expensive. I like TLM 49 very much because it is very warm mic and good for my voice .Really, I've got fantastic results after mixing.

Vocal/Instrument mic
Aidrian, 09.06.2013
Used as an unmatched stereo pairing with a JZ BH1 on an acoustic guitar, the frequencies highlighted by each mic then panned left and right, made the finished stereo track sound like two guitars playing in tandem. Fantastic......The higher frequencies, although unforgiving, accentuated the attack and gave a clarity many mics of this price range would struggle with.
