Neumann TLM 67 Set Z Review

So, after every instance I could put together to test every facet of this mic, I was left dumbfounded. My only conclusion? This is my new go to mic on all vocals and guitar!

When picking up the Neumann TLM 67 Set Z, the classic styling already had me imagining crooning into this great mic, a la “The Chairman of the Board” Frank Sinatra.
After the initial set up (the Mic comes with it’s shock mount, ensuring that it is in the best hands when you’re laying the next great track), I was content with the sounds from the stock phantom power from the Mbox2 Pro. Thinking about taking it up a notch, I plugged it into a Daking Mic Pre One to test out some professional Mic Pre and to contour the sound of the transformer based Mic Pre. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the mic did wonders when slowly crafting new tones. While adding small amounts of gain, the tonal characteristics of the classic Neumann U87 were apparent, and I will admit, I was blown away within the first 20 minutes of tracking.
Wanting to see how easily it translated to guitar cabs, I transported it to my isolated cabinet and cranked the gain up. What came next would surprise even the most jaded engineers; the bass was heavy, the mids were full, and the highs sounded immaculate. I was trying to throw new tones every few minutes to see if I could stump the German powerhouse, but in the end it was ME who was stumped. Every style I could conjure up; Blues, Funk, Rock, Jazz and Metal all were handled with aplomb. This microphone really handles itself in the highest regard.
So, after every instance I could put together to test every facet of this mic, I was left dumbfounded. My only conclusion? This is my new go to mic on all vocals and guitar!
