Neumann TLM 67 Large-Diaphragm Multipattern Condenser Microphone

Styled in a special finish to commemorate their 80th anniversary, the pearl gray and nickel Neumann TLM 67 Large-Diaphragm Multipattern Condenser Microphone provides the warm sonic signature of the heralded U 67 tube mic along with reliable, low-noise FET circuitry and a clean, transformerless output. By combining "old" sound with new technology, the TLM 67 serves as an ideal choice for vocalists, broadcasters, musicians, producers, and engineers who need a vintage tone they can depend on.

By incorporating the U 67's classic K 67 capsule, the TLM 67 is able to offer a linear frequency response with tube-like midrange as well as three selectable polar patterns—omnidirectional, figure-8, and cardioid—for versatility in the studio. Additionally, it features switchable pad and low-cut filter options to allow further signal optimization at the mic. As the mic receives high SPLs over 105 dB (in cardioid), it is designed to exude gentle saturation in the same way tube circuits do. The TLM 67 includes a wooden box; accessories such as pop filters and spider-style shockmounts are available separately.

Classic Sound with Updated Convenience

Today's concept of the studio microphone is still very much defined by Neumann's classic U 67. Introduced in 1960, it offered an essentially linear frequency response in three polar patterns as well as pad and low-cut options for then-new close-miking techniques. The U 67 was (and still is) a true studio workhorse, and many top engineers consider it their "desert island" microphone. However, vintage originals come at collectors' prices, out of reach for young engineers and musicians. The TLM 67 is an attractively priced alternative.

U 67 for the New Age

The TLM 67 shares many of the U 67's key features, including its elegant shape and the famous tapered headgrille, which has since become iconic for the Neumann brand. What's more, the TLM 67 uses the same large-diaphragm capsule as its legendary predecessor, the classic K 67 capsule, also used in the Neumann U 87 A.

Reimagining the Sound of the '60s

Instead of the U 67's tube electronics, the TLM 67 has a transformerless head amplifier, built with highly reliable, 21st-century, solid-state technology, yet with a retro twist. The TLM 67's circuit may be modern, but it meticulously reproduces the sound of the 1960s. This results in a seemingly low max SPL figure of 105 dB (in cardioid mode) for 0.5% THD, but, like in a tube circuit, distortion rises gently to 5% THD for 125 dB SPL. The TLM 67 thus captures the sound character and dynamic behavior of its famous predecessor without the use of tubes and without the inconvenience of a clunky PSU box and multipin cables.

Special Color Scheme

Visually, too, the TLM 67 has a retro touch with a special dual-color scheme, combining a capsule head in classic satin nickel with a stylish pearl-gray body. Released in 2008, the TLM 67's front is graced by a metal emblem of the company's founder, Georg Neumann, commemorating the company's 80th anniversary.

Versatile Applications

Just like its legendary precursor, the TLM 67 is a universal studio microphone with three directional patterns—omni, figure-8, and cardioid—as well as low-cut and pad options. Its tube-like midrange character makes the TLM 67 is an excellent microphone for vocals and spoken word. Thanks to its essentially linear frequency response, it is also a versatile microphone for a wide rage of instruments such as acoustic and electric guitar, piano, percussion, drums overheads, and much more.
