This is a lovely pair of TLM-107s and comes with all accessories: wooden cases, stand swivel mounts, additional "spider" elastic mounts, manual. They have very low use, mostly on jazz piano and some vocals. For an example of how they sound, check out - heaveneverywhere.com/MOB/4%20Sanctuary2_190711.mp3 - the piano was recorded with these two microphones.

$3400 / pair new
These are available for $2300 + shipping

Please do check out my feedback; I take care of my gear, list it honestly, ship immediately and want to make customers happy.

These sound miles better than the TLM-102 or TLM-103 models (I've done the mic-shoot-outs!)

Product Information

Enjoy a symphonic melding of convenience and power with the Neumann TLM 107 condenser wired microphone. The Neumann features SLR cable connection technology, which works hard to prevent interference while simultaneously battling against the ravages of high impedance. The capacitor aided condenser microphone technology gives you the freedom to capture sharp sounds with a high degree of accuracy. This is backed up by a flexible polar pattern selection range that allows you to choose between omnidirectional, super cardioid, cardioid, bidirectional, and wide cardioid pickup patterns. This allows you the potential to pull clean sound from many sources in just about any situation and also enables you to fine tune your personal sound like never before. Topping everything off is the wired XLR cabling that makes interference obsolete and lets you use longer runs of wire with no leakage.

Multipattern large diaphragm microphone with 5 polar patterns (omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, hypercardioid, figure-eight)

Navigation switch with LED illuminated display for polar pattern, PAD and low cut

Description

Multi-faceted versatility, no-compromise sound and innovative operation: With five directional characteristics and a novel operating concept, the Neumann TLM 107 provides sound without any coloration. Featuring equally impressive level handling and low self-noise, it captures everything from the softest whisper to thundering drums.

Classic proportions combined with attractive styling and fresh ideas -- the TLM 107 perfectly embodies the Neumann philosophy: Innovation based on tradition. Far from evoking vintage or retro nostalgia, the standard-setting TLM 107 represents an impressive, modern studio microphone. Its extensive performance spectrum and high-precision reproduction, very close to the original, make the TLM 107 universally applicable, opening up the widest freedom in mixing and post-production.

Neumann Engineering

The newly developed sound transducer, which was designed especially for this microphone, is impressive with its outstanding impulse fidelity. The great consistency of the five polar patterns, omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8, with the intermediate patterns wide-angle cardioid and hypercardioid, is also unusual for a large-diaphragm capsule. The TLM 107 provides optimal sound not only for the cardioid setting; it also ensures maximum precision over the entire frequency range for all of the other directional characteristics. The sound always remains balanced, with an almost linear reproduction up to 8 kHz, and a slight boost in the highest frequencies that lends presence and freshness to the voice. Here particular attention has been paid to the natural reproduction of speech sounds, especially the critical 's' sound. The grille is acoustically optimized for low sensitivity to pop sounds. In addition, the sound transducer is edge-terminated, with both diaphragms at ground voltage. Specifically, this ensures considerably reduced sensitivity to dust and humidity.

No-Compromise Sound Design

Transformer-less circuitry permits a high degree of linearity and a large dynamic range. The self-noise of only 10 dB-A is practically inaudible, while at the same time, the TLM 107 features high level handling. The maximum sound pressure level of 141 dB SPL can be increased to 153 dB SPL via pre-attenuation (Pad). This enables the TLM 107 to transmit the sound of even the loudest instruments without distortion. The Low Cut settings of Linear, 40 Hz, and 100 Hz are precisely adapted to practical recording situations. Without side effects, the 40 Hz setting cuts interference noise below the range of fundamental tones (where 41 Hz is the frequency of the double bass open E string), while the 100 Hz setting is optimized for speech and vocals (where 100 Hz corresponds to the lowest notes of a baritone).

Innovative Operating Concept

For the first time, all of the microphone switch functions are controlled intuitively via a navigation switch. A visual highlight is the illuminated pattern display in the chrome ring, while the Pad and Low Cut status is displayed by LEDs to the left and right of the switch. In order not to distract singers, the switch and display are located on the back of the microphone. After ten seconds, the displays are turned off automatically.
