A Modern Development of the Classic U 67!

The Neumann TLM 67 contains the legendary number "67" in its name for good reason. Indeed, the TLM 67 is Neumann's contemporary development of the studio classic U 67. Closely reproducing all the sound characteristics of the famous 1960s staple, the TLM 67 incorporates the same K 67 capsule as the U 67, with TLM 49 tube circuit. This particular TLM 67 "Set Z" comes with its own professional shockmount. An extremely versatile three-pattern, large-diaphragm condenser microphone, take a piece of Neumann - and recording - history into your studio with the TLM 67.

Neumann TLM 67 at a Glance:
  • Today's development of a classic
  • A versatile three-pattern condenser
  • Classic Neumann look with commemorative emblem
Today's development of a classic

Along with the numbers "47" and "87," the number "67" resonates within studio professionals the world over. All classics in their own right, The elite Neumann U 47, U 67, and U 87 have attended some of the most legendary recording sessions in music history. Today, Neumann gives us a contemporary development of the classic U 67 in the form of the TLM 67. Using the same K 67 capsule as the U 67, the TLM 67 employs a transformerless design - the same circuitry proved extremely successful with the TLM 49.

A versatile three-pattern condenser

The TLM 67 maintains all the hallmark qualities of the U 67, including its versatility. Switchable between three patterns - omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-eight - the TLM 67 is a perfect vocal microphone for all types of music and spoken voice. It's also excellent as a main microphone and as a spot mic for individual instruments.

Classic Neumann look with commemorative emblem

The TLM 67 is all-Neumann in its presence, yet features a new and elegant dual-color pearl-gray/nickel exterior. What's more, on the occasion of its 80th anniversary Neumann pays honor to founder, Georg Neumann, with a three-dimensional metal emblem adorning the front of the TLM 67.

Awesome Mic

Probably the best mic I have used for my voice. I have not had to use EQ......
5/5

Vintage-modern!

The TLM line of Neumanns seem to get knocked a lot. I'll agree that this doesn't have the sheen in the upper mids of my Beeznees Arabella (based on a u47 and m49), but neither does a U67! This mic is FULL and warm sounding. Think Crosby Stills and Nash - that dark but not dull sound. When doubled or stacked, it doesn't get muddy, but NEVER approaches harsh. It's ribbon-esque in that way and a perfect compliment to the DAW era of you can't let go of "warmth." With the tube emulation circuit, you can hear some of that vintagey saturation as you push into the mic. The best way I can describe this mic is versatile for some, but not for everyone. I, being a classic rock lover, f'ing love it! This mic might be fantastic on Dave Grohl, but might not work for Taylor Swift (based on their production style, not that it wouldn't compliment Taylor's voice well!) It's also fantastic on amps, upright bass, as a room mic.. I'm still experimenting with it, and there's nothing I hate it on so far. I guess they wanted a modern workhorse that's vibed like the u67. For me, that's exactly what Neumann has created!

Best all-around mic for rock and roll

The tlm67 is my go-to mic for everything rock and roll. It has depth and character for vocals, and adds a touch of harmonic distortion that thickens guitar amps. It takes eq brilliantly, so if you want the modern "breathy" character, the tlm67 delivers it with a midrange that has more flavor than most "airy" mics. I have never used a vintage u67, but I've used the u87 for years, and I pick the tlm67 for most duties, but prefer the u87 for more "realistic" sounds like backing choirs. The tlm67 is my "desert island" mic.

Dream mic!!!!!!

This microphone sounds better and works better than any other mic I've used. I'd go ahead and say its the greatest of all time! So warm, crisp, and clean sounding. If you record vocals or any instrument, this is the microphone!!! SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE THE U67

Sweetwater Advice

Kenny Bergle

Owning a pair of M149s, I thought I was done buying large-diaphragm mics.  Silly me!  The TLM 67 sounds so great, it's now my #1 go-to vocal mic for the high-profile studio client that wants the best in world-class studio sound. Also it's perfect, although slightly counter-intuitive, for the less experienced recordist as it overcomes rookie mistakes by virtue of the amazing sound it transduces. The TLM67 is the best investment possible in vocal recording, besides voice lessons!  (It's also tremendous sounding on guitar cabinets!)

Zach Neels

This microphone is AMAZING! Not only did it give my voice the clarity that I haven't heard in years, when using it on my 1x12 recording guitar cab, the bass was heavy, the mids were clean, and the highs were absolutely soaring. If you're in the market for one of the best condensor microphones in the world, pick this up!
