Musical Instruments & Karaoke

Develop your child's appreciation for music from an early age by giving him toys and instruments. Even small toddlers can bang on a colorful xylophone or a pint-size keyboard. When your child is a bit older, give him a basic set of inexpensive percussion, string, and wind instruments so he can experiment to find his favorite before you splurge on the real deal and lessons.

Microphones & Wireless - AEA welcomes the N8 to the growing family of Nuvo ribbon mics.

As you can imagine, the Sweetwater Studios mic vault holds a treasure trove of sonic choices, and we can always depend on our AEA ribbon mics for intelligible, organic sound. Put the AEA N8 ribbon mic's depth and focus into your next mix.AEA N8 Ribbon Microphone at a Glance: Classic ribbon sound for your recordings. Versatile and durable recording tool.

But the N8 is more than just an "R44 lite", and has a voice that's truly its own. Using phantom-powered electronics and a custom German transformer, the N8 gives you extraordinary detail without distortion - it doesn't just make great-sounding recordings, it's a mic that gives you the same sound you hear when you're standing next to your source! The aluminum ribbon gives you clear, warm sound for your recordings while giving you plenty output for effective processing. Versatile and durable recording toolFragile.

AEA evolves the ribbon mic1998 saw a new player enter the ribbon microphone manufacturing game - AEA. Established by engineers and technicians that had been repairing classic RCA ribbon mics since before 1976, AEA set out to not just pay homage to, but to faithfully reproduce the sound and performance of the original RCA 44 ribbon microphone.

The new designs, the Nuvo series N8 amongst them, impart the classic quality and response you only get from a ribbon transducer into your tracks by engineering them with the durability and versatility that you as a modern recordist demand. AEA N8 Ribbon Microphone Features: Phantom powered electronics for optimal performance with any preamp. Unobtrusive looks mean you don't have to sacrifice sound quality for video recordings.

AEA
$1,795.00

Microphones & Wireless - The AEA R88 stereo ribbon mic stuns engineers with its clarity and natural stereo image. The R88 boas...ts two Big Ribbon elements angled at 90 degrees, getting true stereo sound from a single microphone. A great way to get a spacious sound without the hassle of a multi-mic setup. The AEA R88 uses Large Ribbon Geometry (LRG) architecture, that delivers effortless bass down to 20Hz - a feat rarely achieved by mics with a smaller ribbon. With a list of Grammy winning recordings to its name, the AEA R88 proves itself over and over again.AEA R88 Stereo Ribbon Microphone at a Glance: Great stereo recordings with a single mic. Larger ribbon element for wider frequencies and higher SPLs. A list of Grammy awards that keeps growing. Great stereo recordings with a single micUtilizing two of AEA's signature Big Ribbon elements, the R88 stereo ribbon microphone is able to get a huge stereo spread with a single mic. Angled at 90 degrees and mounted in close proximity to each other along the vertical axis of the microphone, the ribbon elements are optimized to capture large ensembles as a great main mic. It is an excellent orchestral and choral recording microphone, and shines on applications such as horn sections and drum overheads. Whether in a high-end studio or in your home desktop application, the R88 mk2 puts the listener right in the recording room.Larger ribbon element for wider frequencies and higher SPLsThe soul of the AEA R88 is two large pure aluminum low-tension ribbon elements. At 2.35" by 0.185" by 2 micron, they're exactly like the one used in the classic R44. The resonant frequency of a good ribbon microphone design should be as low as possible and longer ribbons result in higher sound pressure level (SPL) handling. The R88's Big Ribbon technology ensures you'll achieve a sound that is smooth and natural. This adds up to a sound that is amazingly close to what your ears will hear when actually standing in the studio with the sound source.A list of Grammy awards that keeps growingThe true value of a piece of gear can be measured by a list of its users and where they use it. The AEA R88 stereo ribbon mic is a shining example of this. The list of Grammy and Academy Award winning projects recorded with the R88 microphone is long and keeps growing: Turtle Island String Quartet, Los Tigres Del Norte, Juanes MTV Unplugged, Life Of Pi soundtrack are just a few. And top-level audio engineers like Joe Chiccarelli, Chuck Ainlay, and Vance Powell trust the AEA R88 so much that Nashville's Blackbird Studios has an R88 in every single room.AEA R88 Stereo Ribbon Microphone Features: Stereo ribbon microphone that offers a natural sound. Captures amazingly wide stereo sources with a single mic. Larger-than-normal ribbon elements handle high SPLs with ease. Figure-8, Blumlein Configuration (90 degrees) polar pattern. 165dB Max SPL.

Royer
$1,850.00

Microphones & Wireless - NEWS: Royer Labs has been given a GRAMMY award for their outstanding ribbon mics! In the words of the... Academy, these mics "were revolutionary and moved the art of recording forward."Royer has enhanced one of their most popular ribbon mics with the R-122 MKII active ribbon microphone. This version packs the same impressive output and flexibility as the original R-122, with the addition of a 15dB pad and a bass roll-off switch. Now you can record even the loudest sound sources without worrying about overload and distortion. And you can use the R-122 MKII's proximity effect to your advantage while also cutting out mud and rumble with the switchable filter. Sweetwater has always been impressed with Royer ribbon microphones, and the enhancements in the R-122 MKII active ribbon microphone make it an amazing solution for any stage or studio task.Royer R-122 MKII Active Ribbon Microphone at a Glance: Phantom-powered ribbon mic, more sensitive than any other ribbon. Output similar to condenser mics due to active electronics. Impedance matching circuitry optimizes mic with any preamp. Pure aluminum ribbon with outstanding frequency response. Offset ribbon design handles high SPLs. Phantom-powered ribbon mic, more sensitive than any other ribbonThe R-122 MKII is a compact, monaural, phantom powered ribbon microphone. Sonically similar to Royer's R-121, the R-122 MKII exhibits a flat frequency response and a well balanced panoramic sound field, but it is 13dB more sensitive, its transient response is faster and its electronics provide an optimum load to the ribbon element at all times. Like the R-121, the R-122 MKII's ability to withstand high SPLs makes it ideal for applications that were previously considered off limits to ribbon microphones.Output similar to condenser mics due to active electronicsThe R-122 MKII is as sensitive as condenser microphones, allowing you to use practically any mic preamplifier or board preamp (even those of nominal characteristics). Conventional ribbon microphones are, on average, 15 to 20dB less sensitive than condenser mics, necessitating the use of high-quality, high-gain microphone preamplifiers for recording softer sound sources like acoustic instruments, vocals and room ambience. The R-122 MKII contains a fully balanced, discrete head amplifier system utilizing ultra-low noise FET's. Go ahead and plug an R-122 MKII into any preamplifier with average gain characteristics - you'll get full Royer performance regardless of how quiet the sound source is, and you'll have enough gain to drive any recording medium.Impedance matching circuitry optimizes mic with any preampThe electronics in the R-122 MKII provide a perfect load on the ribbon element at all times, meaning that the R-122 MKII is able to deliver 100% of its full sonic potential regardless of the input characteristics of the following mic-pre. Due to the low-impedance output, Royer's active ribbon mics can also be used with extremely long cable runs with minimal signal loss. A good impedance match is critical with ribbon microphones because impedance mis-matching "loads" a ribbon improperly, resulting in loss of low end, diminished body, lowered sensitivity and overall compromised performance. With the R-122 MKII, the ribbon element lives in a perfect world; it sees an optimum impedance match at all times regardless of the following equipment, so its performance will never be compromised by the effects of improper loading. In addition, the ribbon element can't be damaged by phantom power, electrical glitches or mis-wired cables.Pure aluminum ribbon with outstandin read more

Fender
$599.99

Bass Guitars - Leo Fender designed and built the world's first electric bass guitar in late 1951 and every electric bass made sinc...e then is unquestionably a direct descendent. But Leo was never satisfied, so in 1960, he introduced the "deluxe model" Fender Jazz Bass. So inspired was that design that it has changed little over the years in appearance, though its evolution continues today with the 4-string Standard Jazz Bass. Its two pickups add tonal versatility and a new shielded body cavity delivers quieter operation.Fender Jazz Bass Features at a Glance: Lightweight, "offset waist" alder body. Maple neck with modern "C" shape. Rosewood fingerboard. Dual, single-coil Jazz Bass pickups in a shielded body cavity. Lightweight, "offset waist" alder bodyBass guitars are big and that can mean heavy, too. So the Standard Jazz Bass V comes with the distinctive "offset waist" body design, but made from alder, which is resonant, but relatively light, which you'll appreciate after two or three hours up on stage.Maple neck with modern "C" shape Leo Fender wasn't a guitar player, so he didn't really know that guitars weren't supposed to have maple necks. Eventually, the blond maple necks became a Fender trademark. This Jazz Bass has a nicely balanced maple neck with a modern "C" shape.Rosewood Fingerboard While almost all the early Fender instruments had maple necks and fingerboards, the company quickly realized that some players preferred the slightly warmer sound and feel of a traditional rosewood fingerboard. For the 4-string Standard Jazz Bass, it's the perfect match.Dual, single-coil Jazz Bass pickups in a shielded body cavityFender's early electric basses had just one pickup. So naturally, if one was good, two was even better. The Standard Series Jazz Bass V has two single-coil Jazz Bass pickups in a shielded body cavity for quieter operation, both on stage and in the studio.Fender Standard Jazz Bass Features: Color: Brown Sunburst. No. of Strings: 4. Body Wood: Alder . Neck: Maple. Scale Length: 34". Machine Heads: Standard. Fingerboard: Rosewood . No. of Frets: 20. Pickups: Two standard single-coil Jazz Bass pickups.

AEA
$2,520.00

Microphones & Wireless - After tracking down the engineers who designed and built the original legendary RCA 44 ribbon microph...ones, AEA acquired ribbon material, made the tooling, and custom machined all the parts necessary to build the original RCA 44 B/BX design to its original specifications, in their own AEA R44CE design. Built just like they were in the 1930s, the R44CE from AEA flies in the face of every trend in modern ribbon microphone design, and to glorious results. After years of painstaking work, AEA has again begun production of the most important ribbon mic design of all time.AEA R44CE Classic Ribbon Mic Features at a Glance: Legendary character with more than 80 years of studio history. An accurate reproduction of the original RCA 44 Ribbon Mic. The magnificent design flies in the face of modern trends. Legendary character with more than 80 years of studio historyThe RCA 44 has been one of the quintessential recording microphones from the days of big bands to the modern recording practices of today. They've remained an essential part of studio life well after RCA stopped manufacturing them in 1955. The sound and response of the 44 B/BX were unlike anything else available, and was cherished for its smoothness, forgiving nature and unique tonal balance. Collectors began to buy up the supply of RCA 44's quickly. Now you can get one for yourself with the AEA R44CE. An accurate reproduction of the original RCA 44 Ribbon MicThe 44 was RCA's best microphone from the 1930s into the '50s. Is AEA's R44CE that good? Both listeners and measurements say that the R44CE is even better, and that AEA has been listening to both users and ex-RCA engineers for over 25 years. AEA used to make all of the replacement parts for the RCA 44s, so they knew the design and workings of those coveted mics intimately. They started the re-creations by using only ribbon material originally manufactured for RCA. This is the best way to ensure that AEA's R44CE ribbon mics are as close as humanly possible to vintage RCA 44s. The magnificent design flies in the face of modern trendsThe R44CE design runs contrary to all current ribbon microphone manufacturing. It is large and heavy when other microphones are smaller and lighter. The internal ribbon element is by far the longest, and its resonance tuning the lowest of today's ribbon microphones. It is a pure undamped ribbon design, an approach that has been out of production for over 50 years while remaining in continuous studio use. It is different, and its sound is unique. The R44CE sounds good on everything. Leave it out and use it whenever you need to do a quick take.AEA R44CE Classic Ribbon Mic Features: A legenday mic design replicated for today's recording. Uses the same ribbon material as the original RCA 44. A single diaphragm Figure 8 ribbon microphone. Design has been in use for decades. A very different sound than today's ribbons. Sounds equal to or better than the original RCA 44. High SPL capability. Below 30Hz to above 20kHz. Polar Pattern: Native bi-directional pattern.

Low-noise operation meets high-headroom SPL handling. Onboard options give you even more flexibility. Double the diaphragms, triple the polar patternsHere's something you don't normally see in an affordable multipattern condenser microphone: a pair of hand-crafted diaphragms. In true traditional condenser microphone fashion, the sE Electronics sE2200a II actually uses a pair of identical 1" gold-sputtered diaphragms to shape its polar patterns, providing you with three fully distinct polar patterns. This makes the sE2200a II an ideal condenser microphone for virtually any recording situation, allowing you to get the response and sound isolation you need, no matter what environment you're in.Low-noise operation meets high-headroom SPL handlingWhen it comes to capturing dynamic content, not all studio-style condenser mics are made equal. In fact, the same mic that sounds great on your amp stack may be a bit too noisy to use on acoustic guitar, and your favorite vocal mic may not be able to handle the SPLs required by drum overheads. Not so with sE Electronics' sE2200a II condenser microphone. That's because sE Electronics built the sE2200a II to be able to withstand epic dB levels, while maintaining a super-low noise floor - just what you need to capture softer and more detailed sounds. Onboard options give you even more flexibilityTalk about a studio workhorse mic - the sE Electronics sE2200a II was built to handle just about any sound you can imagine.

Academy, these mics "were revolutionary and moved the art of recording forward."Royer ribbon microphones are simply wonderful! Here at Sweetwater, many of our Sales Engineers own and use these microphones due to their flexibility and versatility. The R-121 is a Sweetwater best-seller and hundreds of our customers agree that you can use it on everything from guitar amps and percussion to woodwind and acoustic instruments. Vocals? You bet. The R-121 is a wonderful studio must-have whether you're looking for just one microphone to do it all, or another flavor to add to your locker.Royer R-121 Dynamic Ribbon Microphone at a Glance: Warm, realistic tone with a flat frequency response.. Works well on just about everything.. The R-121 can take on high SPLs!. Sonically substantial: 2-in-1!. Ribbon-Velocity Studio MicrophoneThe Royer R-121 is a radically redesigned ribbon microphone and Royer's flagship product. Like most ribbons, the Royer R-121's pattern is figure 8, its sensitivity is roughly equal to a good dynamic mic, and it exhibits a warm, realistic tone and flat frequency response. But when it came to design time, Royer threw out the molds and took a fresh approach to ribbons using advanced materials and cutting edge construction techniques. The Royer R-121 redefines ribbon microphones, leading Recording Magazine to say "the Royer Royer R-121 is destined to become one of the classic microphones of the 21st century." It's a sleek, light, extremely versatile microphone that is easy to use, wonderfully musical, and extremely sturdy.Recording With The Royer R-121An Royer R-121 ribbon microphone hears things the way your ears hear them. If you've ever heard that incredible guitar, melodic trumpet, sweet flute, deep kick drum, (pick your sound), and found that getting that sound to tape or hard drive was impossible, you owe it to yourself to try a Royer ribbon. On playback you'll notice that the recorded sound is natural and alive, with a panoramic, ambient feel much like what you heard when you were standing in front of the instruments you recorded.An Royer R-121's response is flat and well balanced; low end is deep and full without getting boomy, mids are well defined and realistic, and the high end response is sweet and natural sounding, never edgy or sibilant. Need to record at insane levels?No problem! The Royer R-121's maximum SPL rating is >135dB and it can take that all day long. In practical terms, that means you can put your Royer R-121 directly in front of a souped up mega-watts Marshall and turn it up to 11 without microphone distortion or doing any damage to the ribbon. We don't recommend trying this with other ribbon mics, but the Royer R-121 can take it, no sweat.2 Mics In OneAt distances of two feet and closer, the back of the Royer R-121 is brighter than the front side. The difference in the sound is somewhat like blending 10% of a condenser mic in with your ribbon mic signal. This can be extremely useful when you record acoustic guitars, vocals, and other sound sources that you may want to hear a little more top end on.Royer R-121 Dynamic Ribbon Microphone Features: High SPL Capabilities . No internal active electronics to overload or produce distortion up to maximum SPL rating . Extremely low residual noise . Ribbon element is not affected by heat or humidity . Absence of high frequency phase distortion . Equal sensitivity from front or back of element . Consistent frequency response regardless of distance . Field replaceable ribbon read more

An aeronautical engineer by trade, Charles felt that there were weaknesses in traditional acoustic guitar designs, and that some of the composite materials he used to build helicopters could be used to control the instruments' vibrations. By utilizing the distinctive parabolic bowl that Ovation guitars have since become known for, Charles found that he could drastically reduce feedback, allowing for greater amplification onstage. Since the development of onboard electronics, Ovation guitars have become one of the most popular brands of acoustic-electrics in the world, endorsed by such artists as Glen Campbell, Nancy Wilson, Steve Lukather, Al DiMeola, and Melissa Etheridge.Ovation 1773AX Classic Nylon, Mid-depth Cutaway Acoustic-electric Guitar Features: Mid-depth bowl delivers impressive projection and rich amplified tone.

Microphones & Wireless - NEWS: Royer Labs has been given a GRAMMY award for their outstanding ribbon mics! In the words of the... Academy, these mics "were revolutionary and moved the art of recording forward."The Royer SF-12 stereo coincident ribbon microphone combines high quality audio performance with outstanding stereo separation and imaging. It is a modern ribbon design with no audible diffraction effects or cavity resonance.Royer SF-12 stereo ribbon microphone at a Glance: Two matched ribbon mics in one body. Superb transient response from low-mass ribbons . Stereo recording at its finest for any application. Two matched ribbon mics in one bodyThe Royer SF-12 is actually two matched ribbon microphones placed one above the other and fixed at a 90-degree angle. This arrangement allows for Blumlein and M-S recording with one microphone, as well as excellent monaural compatibility when summing the two ribbon elements to mono. The SF-12's frequency response is excellent regardless of the angle of sound striking the ribbons and off-axis coloration is negligible. The Royer SF-12's extension cable comes with an adapter which splits into separate left and right XLR connectors, labeled "upper" and "lower."Superb transient response from low-mass ribbonsThe Royer SF-12's two 1.8-micron ribbons are of pure (99.99%) aluminum and provide superb transient response due to their low mass. Each of the Royer SF-12's two ribbon transducers incorporate "cross-field" motor assemblies (patent pending) which are comprised of four powerful Neodymium magnets and Permendur iron pole-pieces. This crossfield design delivers excellent high frequency response due to the extremely short path between the front and rear (sides) of the ribbon elements. The microphone's case is ingot iron and forms part of the magnetic return circuit, an effective system with low leakage flux which accounts for the relatively high sensitivity in a trim package.Stereo recording at its finest for any applicationTrust the Royer SF-12 to provide flawless reproduction of any stereo source. It's especially well suited to capture large sections and ensembles with outstanding clarity and imaging. The SF-12 is ideal for percussion instruments, acoustic guitars, and other plucked stringsRoyer SF-12 Recommended Applications: Stereo & distance miking. Choir, orchestra, string sections. Drum overheads, room miking. Percussion instruments. Brass instruments, horn sections. Woodwind instruments. Stereo acoustic piano, harp. Acoustic guitar, mandolin, stringed instruments. Royer SF-12 stereo ribbon mic Features: True stereophonic (Blumlein and M-S) recording from one microphone. No internal active electronics to overload or produce distortion up to maximum SPL rating.. Extremely low residual noise. Ribbon elements unaffected by heat or humidity. Absence of high frequency peaks, "ringing" and phase shifts. Equal sensitivity from front and back of elements. Very low magnetic leakage. High efficiency toroid matching transformers and gold plated output connector. The Royer SF-12 Stereo Ribbon Microphone is clearly a winner! Ribbon Microphones read more

This microphone's impressive versatility begins with your choice of cardioid, omnidirectional, or figure-8 polar patterns. From there, the 2-stage Kick-shaper and Vocal-shaper highpass filters let you tailor the low-end response for the task at hand. Then there's the onboard Multi-voicing technology that lets you select between Forward, Neutral, and Gentle response curves. Did we mention that the Eden sounds incredible? A unique blend of classic and modern, it delivers smooth, rich low end and midrange as well as upper mids and highs reminiscent of coveted classic vacuum tube microphones. A great choice for vocals, drums, and just about anything else, the Lauten Audio Eden LT-386 makes a superb addition to your mic locker.Lauten Audio Eden LT-386 Tube Condenser Microphone at a Glance: Convenient pattern switching on the microphone. Highpass filters for shaping vocals and kick. Multi-voicing technology: from vintage to modern. Convenient pattern switching on the microphoneLauten Audio spec'd the Eden LT-386 with three selectable polar patterns - cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-8 - so you're covered for any recording scenario. Having the pattern switch conveniently on the mic body (rather than the power supply) lets you quickly and easily make your selection. At Sweetwater, we see a lot of tube mics these days with the pattern selector on the remote power supply, and we have to say that it's nice to see it on the mic - just like many of the sought-after classics.Highpass filters for shaping vocals and kickThe Eden LT-386 is fitted with a pair of 2-stage highpass filters Lauten Audio calls Kick-shaper and Vocal-shaper. These filters are explicitly tuned to shape the low end of two commonly problematic sources. In the default position, the filters are hard-bypassed. Stage one (the middle position) is the Kick-shaper, specifically designed for bass drums. With its steep low-end cut, it removes excessive boominess that might detract from a enormous-sounding kick. But it can also be very effective on toms, vocals, guitars, and more. Move the switch to stage two (the bottom position), and you engage the Vocal-shaper, which cleans up your vocal tracks for a wonderfully smooth and classic sound. Of course, you'll also find this filter to be useful on multiple sources.Multi-voicing technology: from vintage to modern Multi-voicing is a proprietary Lauten Audio technology that uses three separate signal paths to achieve remarkably effective frequency shaping. Specifically designed and tuned for the Eden LT-386, the Forward, Neutral, and Gentle settings let you shape the response curve to the capture task. The Gentle position delivers a warm, vintage vibe and is perfect for maximum control over peaky or bright-sounding sources. Combine this with one of the highpass filters, and you have, effectively, a completely different microphone! The Neutral setting blends classic and modern to give you a smooth, even response with excellent control over sibilance. Finally, Forward opens up the mic for the coveted air of classic microphones.Lauten Audio Eden LT-386 Tube Condenser Microphone Features: Designed for discerning recording engineers.

Microphones & Wireless - The Neumann U 87 is arguably the best known and most widely used studio microphone in the world (for ...good reason). The U 87 Ai condenser microphone is a large diaphragm microphone with three polar patterns and a unique frequency and transient response characteristic. A distinctive design and legendary Neumann sound make this mic a must-have for pro studios. The U 87 is known for its unique frequency and transient response characteristics which deliver a smooth natural sound with a variety of source material. The U 87 Ai is used as a main microphone for orchestra recordings, as a spot mic for single instruments, and extensively as a vocal microphone for all types of music and speech. The easy-to-recognize U 87 is a classic!Neumann U 87 Ai At-a-Glance: Natural Response. Switchable Polar patterns. Updated Components . Filter and Attenuation. Natural ResponseThe U 87 Ai is addressed from the front, marked with the Neumann logo. The frequency response of the cardioid and figure-8 directional characteristics are very flat for frontal sound incidence, even in the upper frequency range. By means of a highpass filter interferences through subsonic and low frequencies are reduced remarkably. Switchable Polar patternsThe dual-diaphragm capsule is elastically mounted and protected by a large headgrille. A switch below the headgrille selects the three directional patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8. A window above this switch shows the symbol of the selected characteristic.Updated ComponentsThe letter A in the name indicates a more recent generation, as compared to the U 87 i microphones that were built from 1967 to 1986. Modifications apply to the electronic components of the microphone only; the capsule remained unchanged. The present-day circuitry increases the operational headroom of the U 87 Ai by supplying the bias voltages for the capsule through a reduced resistance. The result is a higher sensitivity of 10dB for identical sound pressure levels, and an improved S/N ratio of 3dB.Filter and AttenuationA switch located at the rear attenuates the sensitivity by 10dB. When this switch is activated, the microphone accepts sound pressure levels up to 127dB (equivalent to a sound pressure of 45 Pa) without distortion. An additional switch at the rear allows to change the microphone's cutoff frequency. This reduces low frequency interference directly at the input of the microphone amplifier. This setting also compensates for the unavoidable bass boost that occurs with all pressure gradient transducers when they are used at close distance (proximity effect). The cardioid characteristic maintains a smooth frequency response at a distance of 30 to 40 cm, the figure-8 characteristic even at a distance of 15 to 20 cm.Neumann U 87 Ai Features: Variable large diaphragm microphone . Pressure-gradient transducer with double membrane capsule . The studio microphone classic . Three directional characteristics: omni, cardioid, figure-8 . Switchable low frequency roll-off . Switchable 10dB pre-attenuation . Ideal as main and as support microphone in practiacally all recording situations. Requires +48V phantom power. Neumann U 87 Ai - THE studio standard!

Microphones & Wireless - The TLM 49 is a large-diaphragm studio microphone with a cardioid directional characteristic and a wa...rm sound which is especially optimized for vocal performance. It is supplied as a set, with an elastic suspension. The TLM 49 design is inspired by that of the legendary M 49 and M 50 microphones of the 1950s. Naturally the TLM 49 has the typical Neumann fine matte nickel finish. The "sound design" is also oriented toward that of the M 49 and the U 47. By combining its retro look with proven Neumann transformerless circuit technology, this microphone ensures low self-noise and the use of high gain levels.Neumann TLM 49 Large-diaphragm Condenser Microphone at a Glance: Ideal mic for vocal applications. Linear frequency response with slight boost above 2kHz. Transformerless design for low noise. Acoustically neutral headgrille and elastic inner mountings. Includes EA 3 shock mount. Ideal mic for vocal applicationsDuring the development phase, the TLM 49's sound was adjusted in extensive practical tests, so as to make it ideal particularly for vocal and speech recording. However, in addition, it is also suitable for instrumental applications in professional production studios and demanding home recordings.Linear frequency response with slight boost above 2kHzThe TLM 49 uses the famous K 47 capsule, which was also used in the M 49 and the U 47. The capsule has a linear frequency response up to the upper midrange. Above 2kHz there is a gentle presence boost up to 3dB. The large-diaphragm capsule of the TLM 49 provides a cardioid directional characteristic with a tendency toward supercardioid, due to the special capsule construction. Following the example of the M 49, high frequencies are more directional. The capsule diameter is 34 mm.Transformerless design for low noiseThe letters TLM stand for "transformerless microphone". With TLM technology the usual output transformer is replaced by an electronic circuit. As with traditional transformers, it ensures good common mode rejection, and prevents RF interference that may influence the balanced audio signal. Noise signals which affect the balanced modulation line are therefore effectively suppressed. The TLM 49 can operate at sound pressure levels of up to 114dB without distortion, and provides a dynamic range of 102dB (A-weighted).Acoustically neutral headgrille and elastic inner mountingsThe TLM 49 capsule is enclosed by a large microphone headgrille, which is acoustically very open and is hence neutral with regard to the sound. The entire interior structure is mounted elastically, to prevent the transmission of structure-borne noise. In addition, the TLM 49 capsule is mounted with a rubber shock mount. Includes EA 3 shock mountDue to the wide frequency response, the TLM 49 can also transmit extremely low-frequency signals without coloration. Of course this means that the microphone is also sensitive to noise signals such as vibration noise and wind noise in this frequency range. The TLM 49 is therefore supplied with the elastic suspension EA 3, which effectively protects the microphone from structure-borne noise. If the microphone is addressed at extremely close range, pop screen PS 15 or PS 20 a can be used in front of the microphone to provide protection against plosive sounds.Neumann TLM 49 Large-diaphragm Condenser Microphone Features: Transformerless large-diaphragm cardioid condenser mic. 34mm capsule diameter.
