Great mic

Neumann quality and sound in a compact housing. The rich, smooth tone of this mic has taken my vocal tracks to the next level.

Just buy It

The TLM 102 was the first microphone I had ever used for a professional recording, and 5 years later it is still my go-to mic for almost any situation. I now work in a professional studio handling up to 4 to 5 sessions a day and with all the mic options for the different artists that come in i still find that the TLM trumps them all in sound , and ability to manipulate the sound in post.

Love my new microphone AND my new go-to guy

Beautiful-sounding mic sensitive to every nuance voiceover requires. Extremely pleasant experience working with Brad Thomsen too--nice to have his expert advice when selecting the right home studio equipment for my needs and budget.

The Real Sound

Finally my project studio has a pro sound all because of this little mic. It reproduces my Martin perfectly and then seems to give it a little edge although that could be the duet preamps. For my voice, it picks up every nuance of expression. Really an incredible mic. I guess all along I wanted that Neumann sound and didn't know it!

Sweetwater Advice

Stuart Niven

Want the Neumann sound at a great price point? This is the mic. Born from the TLM103 (which is famous among rappers and voiceover artists alike), the Neumann TLM 102 MT delivers.
