The Neumann TLM 193 is a large diaphragm microphone to be used in the studio. It has the same look at the U 87 and other large diaphragm mics, and it's one of the newer mics from Neumann as far as I know. It's got a cardioid pick up pattern and a frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Unlike the U87, it doesn't feature a pad or a low cut filter.


The Neumann TLM 193 sounds to me much like the U87, although it is a slightly different sound and definitely has it's own place in the studio. I only had a chance to use a set of these recently at a major studio. We used them as room mics. We were recording drums in the live room and I think that these mics did an awesome job of capturing that live room sound. Since I don't own one of these at home and haven't seen them at any other studios, I'd definitely curious to hear how this mic sounds for vocals and other acoustic instruments. I think that you can definitely look at the TLM 193 as a poorer (still not poor) man's version of the U87. It has that crisp clear clarity and great mid and high end response to it that just reminds me of that sort of sound. I haven't had the chance to shoot the two of them out against each other, and would be curious to do so but currently don't have the means to do so. It's definitely still not a cheap microphone, but it's still a little bit less than half of the amount of a new U87. You can get even cheaper with Neumann mics like the TLM 103, but that mic doesn't have the super U87 sound to me, and while this isn't exactly there either, it's much closer to it. Anybody with a higher end home studio or pro studio should be aware of the Neumann TLM 193 and what it brings to the table for the price.
