The Neumann name invokes a time-tested enthusiasm wherever it's heard or seen, and the TLM67 microphone -- bundled here in a "Set Z" with its matching shockmount -- is no exception. Based on the infamous U67 from the '60s, the TLM67 uses the same K67 capsule as the U67, and utilizes transformerless circuitry that's also used in the popular TLM49. With three directional pattern settings, a switchable -10 dB pad and high pass filter, and high maximum SPL, the TLM67 is ready to record in different settings with multiple instruments. Add some class to your mic locker with this gem of German engineering!

Neumann's Renowned Engineering, Based on the Classic K67 Capsule

Your TLM67 is a modern revamp of the classic '60s U67, fit with the same K67 capsule that produces a high frequency resonance heard on so many recordings from that era. Configured with a transformerless circuit similar to Neumann's popular TLM49, the TLM67 mimics the harmonics of a tube microphone with a sound that breaks up nicely at higher volume levels. You'll see why time after time Neumann maintains its position as a world leading manufacturer of some of the best large diaphragm microphones known once you playback your first tracking with this wonderful engineering marvel.

Three Directional Pattern Settings for Versatile Capture

The 3-pattern TLM67 allows you to pick up sources in cardioid, omnidirectional, or bidirectional figure-eight patterns. Each pattern has an SPL level of 105 dB SPL, and there's a switchable -10 dB pad for those extra-loud sources, and a low-cut filter for dumping room rumble. This versatile baby is great for vocals, voice-over recordings, and many different instrumental sources.

Lightweight, Durable, and Secure

Your TLM67 weighs in at only 1.08 pounds, and the included shock mount in the "Set Z" package will pave the way for a smooth recording every time. You'll likely be holding onto this powerful tool for decades of recording -- its sturdy and sophisticated circuitry will deliver "that Neumann sound" time after time. On the front of this anniversary-edition mic, you will see a circular emblem commemorating George Neumann for over 80 years of superior craftsmanship and ingenuity.

Features:

- Sonic reproduction based off of the U67
- Quiet and sophisticated transformerless circuitry
- Frequency range 20 Hz - 20 kHz
- Connects via XLR
- Weighs 1.08 pounds
- Uses same K67 capsule as the U67
- Cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-eight settings

Product Description

A contemporary development of the legendary U67. K67 capsule, circuit design, which closely reproduces the U67 sound characteristics, three directional pattern, pre-attenuation and high-pass filter. Novel Neumann dual-color design.

In the world of studio microphones, the numbers "47", "67" and "87" have associations that inspire enthusiasm among professionals in the field. It is of course no coincidence that the name of the TLM67* contains the number "67". In many respects, the TLM67 is based on the "workhorse" of the 1960s, the legendary U67. Like the U67, the TLM67 incorporates the K67 capsule. In addition, the special circuit design closely reproduces the sound characteristics of the classic U67, without the use of tubes. Similar Neumann circuit technology has already proved very successful in the TLM49.

The TLM67 is extremely versatile. Its three switchable directional characteristics (omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8), selectable 10 dB pre-attenuation and high-pass filter permit detailed adjustments to be made, depending upon the specific recording situation.

Exterior design

The TLM67 is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone in the classic Neumann style, with a unique dual-color design. The stylish pearl-gray of the microphone body combined with the classic Neumann nickel lends the microphone a touch of distinctive individuality.

The legendary, frequently imitated design of the Neumann U67 was the first to be developed by Neumann employees in collaboration with the famous German designer, Wilhelm Braun-Feldweg. The design of the TLM67 represents a contemporary development of that of the U67, transferring its positive impact to the present era. The enhanced exterior design thus links past and future microphone design trends.

On the occasion of its 80th anniversary, the Neumann company is honoring its founder, Georg Neumann, with a three-dimensional metal emblem on the front of the TLM67. The distinctive Neumann attraction is conveyed in every detail of the microphone.

Applications

Due to its extensive control features, the TLM67 is suitable for a wide range of applications. In addition to its primary role as a vocal microphone for all types of music and spoken voice, in orchestral recordings the TLM67 can be used as a main microphone and as a spot microphone for individual instruments.

Acoustic Features

The microphone is addressed from the side on which the Neumann logo is located.

A large wire mesh grille encloses the elastically mounted double diaphragm capsule. The directional characteristics omnidirectional, cardioid or figure-8 can be selected via a switch below the grille. The selected setting is indicated by a symbol shown in a window above the switch.

Electrical Features

The letters "TLM" stand for "transformerless microphone". In the TLM67, an electronic circuit is used rather than a conventional output transformer. Like a transformer, the circuit ensures good common mode rejection, effectively suppressing interference signals that affect the balanced modulation line. The microphone can operate at sound pressure levels of up to 105 dB without distortion, and has a dynamic range of 94 dB (A-weighted), without the use of the pre-attenuation switch.

Filter and Pre-attenuation

The pre-attenuation switch on the back of the microphone can be used to reduce transmission levels by approx. 10 dB. It should be used only when there is a risk of overloading following devices due to very high sound pressure levels. Use of the switch does not increase the dynamic range of the microphone, but rather shifts it by 10 dB, to higher sound pressure levels. The other switch on the back of the microphone can be used to change the cutoff frequency of the built-in high-pass filter, so as to suppress the effects of impact sound and wind noise, or to compensate for the proximity effect.

Operational Reliability

Elastic mounting of the capsule supplies protection from the transmission of structure-borne noise. If required, the EA87 elastic suspension and WS 87 windscreen are available as accessories, for further suppression of structure-borne and wind noise. The PS15 or PS20 a popscreen can be used if the microphone is to be addressed at close range.

*The design of the microphone is a registered design of the Georg Neumann GmbH in certain countries.
