About This Listing

For sale here is a very nice Neumann TLM 193 complete set, with the original SN matched case and swivel mount.  I believe it's from the late 90s or early 2000s.  This TLM 193 is in excellent and correct working condition; it sounds beautiful, exactly as it should.  The mic is in excellent cosmetic condition, with three very minor flaws of note:  there's a small ding in the front of the body; the badge has been weathered a bit; and there's a tiny dent in the windscreen cage on the front that I've highlighted in one of the photos.  These are all really negligible blemishes and are visible in the photos.  If you need an immaculate 193 you should probably spend another few Benjamins on a new one.  Seriously, this one is really nice and it has served me well.  It's always been kept in plastic with a silica packet.

If you're unfamiliar with the 193 – it's a beautiful mic; flat and neutral, essentially a fixed-pattern TLM 170 without the HPF.  It's got a small dip around 4 kHz, it's never harsh off-axis, and it takes EQ very well, which makes it excellent for anything that tends toward abrasive or shrill; excellent for horns, guitar cabinets, drum overheads, and a sneaky dark horse mic for vocals.  Do not confuse it with the much maligned TLM 103 or the similarly shaped but very different U89 – the TLM 193 is a real gem.  Absolutely a must for the locker, and an excellent contender for anyone's first 'real' mic.  I bought this one as a placeholder until I could find another 170, and one just came through for me, so this 193 is up for sale. 

This TLM 193 is sold in good faith, and guaranteed as described, but otherwise as is, so please ask questions if you have any.  Thanks for looking.
