Neumann tlm 107
« on: January 22, 2018, 11:17:24 AM »
I have an opportunity to buy a pair at a good price. These would be used mostly for close micing of acoustic instruments, piano,etc. Any opinions?

No opinion (I don't use this mike or know anyone who does), but a question: What attracts you to this specific model? Its frequency response seems to be tailored for studio use, i.e. as a microphone with a specific "coloring" to it--and in most of its pattern settings, its directional response varies across the frequency range more than a small, single-diaphragm microphone of comparable quality. So that isn't the set of characteristics that one would normally choose for stereo pair recording from a distance in a reverberant environment.

I doubt you could go wrong with a large diaphragm Neumann

D Satz- I have nothing but immense respect for your knowledge and wisdom. As stated though, this would be for close micing of mostly acoustic instruments in multi-track recordings. Many of my recordings and most of my releases are location multi-track using a combination of small and large diaphragm mics. i was wondering if anyone had an opinion of this mic for this intended purpose. I heard it on the cello in this live recorded piece and thought it sounded quite good. http://instantencore.com/work/work.aspx?work=5080512

Ah. Sorry--despite what is plainly said in your message, nonetheless I somehow assumed that this was meant for the more usual application that people have on this board. That was completely due to inattention on my part.
