Another report brought to you by our AES collaboration with Pro Sound News Europe.
When you think of the technological advances that have taken place in the last 10 years, itâ€™s amazing to think that Neumann have been in the audio business for 80 years! Celebrating this fact at the AES, they have announced a new special edition mic - the TLM79.
â€œA 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." And itâ€™s got a picture of Georg Neumannâ€™s head on it.
Itâ€™s not a tube mic, but just a â€œlarge diaphragm multi-pattern microphoneâ€� and is available for around â‚¬2000 Euros.
You can also enter the competition running on the Neumann.com website to win a TLM67 mic by spotting a song from a particular musical period.
