"Best mic i ever used!"
Replace it ? Ofcourse not! I will be using this mic for a long long time! If i get another mic i will definitly use both in different projects as the tlm49 is irreplacable!
The sound through this mic is AWSOME. It is very crisp and clear.. just what i wanted. Hook it up to a GOOD PREAMP (tube or solidstate) and u will get awsome results. I use it exclusively for vocals which is what its designed for. I recorded using the TLM103 before and the tlm49 KNOCKS IT OFF !! It's brand new, and from the first couple of tests it sounds amazing. Gives u that richness and depth in the low frequencies.
It only included a shockmount EA3, which was kinda hard to assemble, i dunno if i assembled it the way i should but it works so im fine with how i assembled it!!
Its a one pattern cardiod mic, so it got no additional features.
Ease of Use
With a good preamp, u can go from rich thick warm voice to crisp crystal clear sound. It gives me the variation i need.
IT'S A NEUMANN!! Its heavy and fees like it could last for age..
It was a bit over my budget and compared to other mics too. But considering that it's a NEUMANN and vocalist reviews i read, it was worth it.
And when i first plugged it in to give it the 1st try, it was worth it!
Didn't try and hope i wont need to.
The Wow Factor
Its not sexy, its CHARISMATIC! The color, the heavy (almost 1 KG) weight, the hard solid metal its made out of, the shape and its LAARRGGE grill gives it an attitude and its very very appealing.
