The question becomes do you end up paying so much more just for the polar patterns with no discernible sonic advantage? And in observance of its 80th anniversary, the company is honoring its founder, Georg Neumann, with a three-dimensional metal emblem on the front of the TLM 67. A variety of accessories are available, including the EA87 elastic shock-mount suspension (shown in photo), a foam windscreen and a pop filter. It was a U67, which I had never really heard before. Billed as a “contemporary development of the legendary U 67,” the TLM 67 is a dual-diaphragm, three-pattern, large-diaphragm microphone built on the K67 capsule made famous by Neumann’s U67. The chosen setting is indicated by a symbol shown in a window above the switch. Like its predecessor, the TLM 67 is a versatile studio workhorse with three polar patterns, pad and low cut options. The TLM 67 sounds even quieter than its quoted figures. The TLM 67 sounds even quieter than its quoted figures. Sorry it took so long to see this. If I had to buy a new mic today, I'd be hard pressed to choose between a U 89i, one of which I already have, or a TLM 67.Regards,Ty Ford, Rock n Roll Rentals site is updated.http://rocknrollrentals.com/gear/microphones/, Technique, Inc. © All Rights Reserved. Inside the TLM 67, Neumann is using surface mount technology similar to that in the TLM 103. This philosophy of updating performance and sound while retaining the spirit of the U67 is carried out throughout the TLM 67. To mark Neumann's 80th year of business, the TLM 67 is based on the company's classic 1960s U67 microphone. they are referred to as “Silicone Tube” by MXL, they have no vacuum tube and are essential FET mics. In that relative order, the sensitivities at 1 kHz into 1 kohm are 10/18/9 mV/Pa. Update my browser now, By By George Petersen The omni is mildly beamy at high frequencies, but most are. I paid $260 & $280 respectively for them (new) but have no reservations about putting them up against mics costing up to 10 times as much. Das U67 war in den 60er Jahren, also einer Zeit, in der alle Kondensatormikrofone in Röhrentechnik gebaut wurden, weil es […] Another circuit reproduces the U67’s sound characteristics, without the use of tubes, similar to the technology used in the company’s successful TLM 49. Specifications don't always tell the story. I found recordings of both guitars were accurate and with nice attention to mid range detail. Wie bereits beim TLM 49 erfolgreich geschehen, will der traditionsreiche Mikrofonhersteller Neumann auch mit dem TLM 67 den Sound einer Mikrofonlegende, in diesem Fall dem U67, mit den Vorzügen der aktuellen Technik dem Vorbild nach empfinden. Using the TLM 67's figure of eight pattern, I found a good spot about six inches from the cabinet that gave me a nice chunk, good mids and a nice clean top. The TLM 67 introduces a novel Neumann dual-color design. B&H Deal Zone - Every day a new deal that expires 11:59pm EST or if product sells out. What we have is a three-pattern, FET, condenser microphone with two, large Mylar diaphragms, switchable 10 dB pad and high-pass filter. © 2020 MIX is part of Future plc, an international media group and leading digital publisher.

Meanwhile, the TLM 67’s noise specs are kept at a minimum, as low as 11 dB-A in the cardioid pattern. Succinct and informative reviews of audio equipment and other related technology. It uses the same K67 capsule and features a special circuit design that closely reproduces the valve or tube sound characteristics of the U67. As a continuing part of its 80th anniversary celebration (1928-2008), Neumann unveils the TLM 67, a new microphone based on its legendary 1960s workhorse U67. “The design and circuit technology of the TLM 67 represent a contemporary development of the U67, conveying its positive attributes to the present era,” explains Neumann Berlin sales/marketing president Wolfgang Fraissinet. They may look quite similar, and they indeed share a number of similar features such as the switchable polar pattern, pre-attenuation pad, and high-pass filter. As a continuing part of its 80th anniversary celebration (1928-2008), Neumann unveils the TLM 67, a new microphone based on its legendary 1960s workhorse U67. What did you do? Selfnoise is not a problem. Neumann U67 and Neumann U87 come from the same family of condenser microphones. Maximum output voltage is -1 dBu. The new mic shares the TLM (transformerless microphone) approach of other recent Neumann designs, in which an electronic circuit mimics the action of a conventional output transformer, providing good common-mode rejection to suppress interference signals that affect the balanced modulation line. The rated impedance is 50 ohms with a load impedance of 1 kohms. I insisted on the U47, but he was dead set on the 67. Three directional characteristics—omnidirectional, cardioid or figure-8—can be selected via a switch located below the grille. Published: 05/23/2008. Powered by. Equivalent noise levels, CCIR are 29/24/30 dB. “The design and circuit technology of the TLM 67 represent a contemporary development of the U67, conveying its positive attributes to the present era,” explains Neumann Berlin sales/marketing president Wolfgang […] A-weighted selfnoise are 16/11/17 dB-A. On my D28S Martin and 314 Taylor, I liked the high-pass filter on because these instruments have a plenty of LF energy. Unlike the U67, this is a solid state mic. The cardioid is fairly wide. The Neumann U 67 is also known as: U 60, U67. The mic was released in 1960.
