"NEUMANN FOR $700...WHY LOOK ANYWHERE ELSE?!"

I hope to keep using this mic 50 years from now or maybe put it away like an antique only to pull it out for special records. I plan on telling my great grandkids about this wonderful mic that NEUMANN made for $700 and gave me stellar results!
I record a wide variety of latin music from mexican regional to hip hop and lemme tell you...this mic does it all! Don't let the size of this thing fool you...it's a monster when it comes to clarity.
Does not come with a shockmount so you gotta use a regular clip that comes with it. I find that kind of "unsafe" since its such a small mic because you dont it to fly up accidently...lol.
Ease of Use
Plug into your best mic preamp and hear everything MXL couldn't provide me.
It's made like a Neumann TLM103...in fact it looks like a mini one. As far as quality, it looks professional and feels professional. Whether it would recover from a fall to the ground due to carelessness, I dont know. Im usually careful & overprotective with all my recording equipment.
I paid $700 for a mic when there was plenty options available to me. I wanted the security of the NEUMANN brand name stamped onto my mic!
I put 9 b/c I haven't had to call NEUMANN for nothing. It works like it should...why should I call them? Maybe to thank them for a very good mic.
The Wow Factor
It looks professional...althought the size makes it look like a toy. But who cares? Big things come in small packages...
