Based on the Same Capsule as the Legendary U 87

The Neumann TLM 103 large-diaphragm condenser has the depth and sparkle to turn your acoustic recordings downright three-dimensional. Sweetwater sound engineers love our TLM 103s for certain lead male vocalists and steel-stringed acoustics. We're pairing this mic with everything you need to get rolling in your studio: a rugged locking boom stand, a hot-swappable quick-release attachment for auditioning mics, a lifetime-warrantied 25' Mogami Gold cable, and a hard case to protect your gear between sessions.

Neumann TLM 103: huge dynamic range with low noise and coloration

The K 103 large-diaphragm capsule is based on the K 87, well known from the U 67 and U 87 microphones. The capsule has a flat frequency response up to about 5kHz, and above that, a wide flat 4dB presence boost. The TLM 103's large wire mesh grille protects the capsule from plosive sounds and effectively prevents pop noises. These characteristics are achieved without resorting to corrective resonance effects. Therefore, the TLM 103 maintains an excellent impulse response and reproduces the details of music and speech without coloration. With the TLM 103's incredibly low self-noise, even the smallest signals are reproduced basically noise-free. As it is capable of handling sound pressure levels up to 138dB without distortion, the TLM 103 provides a dynamic range of 131dB (A-weighted).

K&M non-slipping boom stand keeps your TLM 103 where you need it

German engineered from Swiss steel, the heavy-duty Konig & Meyer 21090.500.55 mic stand will save you time and frustration when you're trying to find the right vocal or guitar sound. Its simple twist clutch lets you make precise height adjustments on the fly. And the locking T-bar will keep your boom arm from drifting down due to gravity or a raucous drum take.

Gator Frameworks Quick-release stand topper sets up your TLM 103 in seconds

Setting up microphones in the studio is much quicker with the Gator Frameworks Quick-release mic attachment. It mounts to any 5/8" threaded mic stand and allows you to attach and release microphone clips or boom arms with a smooth clutch release. There's even a red indicator that tells you when the mechanism isn't fully engaged.

25' Mogami Gold Studio cable is built for a lifetime of great performance

Whether you're recording or performing live, you need cables that let you capture the full impact of your source. That's what you get with Mogami Gold. For decades, top audio engineers worldwide have chosen Mogami cabling for its superior audio clarity, low-loss signal transfer, vanishingly low noise, and consistent manufacturing quality. Mogami Gold uses the same microphone, instrument, and multichannel interface cable found in world-class studios, backed with Mogami's no-excuses lifetime warranty. Cables are a vital component of your signal chain. Don't leave it to chance. Wire up with Mogami Gold.

Gator waterproof case guarantees the full life of your TLM 103

A waterproof case like the Gator GU-1711-06-WPDV isn't just useful for the road. Humidity can even take a toll on your TLM 103 and other condensers in the studio. And if you don't have a controlled mic closet, an IP rated case is the way to go. Protecting your mics from moisture and dust between uses will ensure your TLM 103 remains in your regular rotation for the life of your studio. The internal divider system is useful for keeping accessories on hand.
