A contemporary development of the legendary U 67. K 67 capsule, new circuit design, which closely reproduces the U 67 sound characteristics, three directional pattern, pre-attenuation and high-pass filter. Novel Neumann dual-color design.
The TLM 67 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.
The legendary, frequently imitated design of the Neumann U 67 was the first to be developed by Neumann employees in collaboration with the famous German designer, Wilhelm Braun-Feldweg. The design of the TLM 67 represents a contemporary development of that of the U 67, 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 TLM 67. The distinctive Neumann attraction is conveyed in every detail of the microphone.
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.
Filter and pre-attenuation
- Sound characteristics based on the legendary U 67
- Three switchable directional characteristics (omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8)
- Switchable high-pass filter and pre-attenuation
- Transformerless circuit technology
- New dual-color exterior design
These are just some of the most common applications. We recommend additional experimentation to gain maximum use from this microphone.
- Extremely versatile
- Vocal microphone (soloists and background choir)
- Broadcasting, dubbing and voiceovers
- Overhead microphone
- Spot microphone, and suitable e.g. for strings, especially cello and double bass, as well as piano
