Neumann TLM49 Studio Set
The TLM 49 is a large-diaphragm studio microphone with a cardioid directional characteristic and a warm sound which is especially optimized for vocal performance. It is supplied as a set, with an elastic suspension. The 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.
During the development phase, the sound was adjusted in extensive practical tests, so as to make the TLM 49 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.
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. The front of the microphone is indicated by the red Neumann logo on the microphone body. The capsule is oriented so that the microphone is addressed from the front.
The 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 mid-range. Above 2 kHz there is a gentle presence boost up to 3 dB. The capsule is enclosed by a large microphone headgrille, which is acoustically very open and is hence neutral with regard to the sound.
The 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 microphone can operate at sound pressure levels of up to 129 dB without distortion, and provides a dynamic range of 117 dB (A-weighted).
The entire interior structure is mounted elastically, to prevent the transmission of structure-borne noise. In addition, the capsule is mounted with a rubber shock mount. Due 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.
AKG PR4500 PT Set
The PT4500 is an analog reference wireless body-pack transmitter with supreme wireless audio quality for instrumental and vocal use. The pilot tone prevents unexpected system startup noise, continuously sending transmitter data, including mute switch position and remaining battery life, to the receiver. An optional RMS4000 external mute switch allows the user to mute the transmitter remotely. WMS4500 transmitters offer an unmatched battery life of 15 hours with two standard AA-size alkaline batteries. With the integrated charging contacts, the optional BP4000 battery-pack can be charged inside the transmitter.
AKG Drumset Premium
The Drum Premium reference drum microphone set is a hand-selected collection of the highest-quality microphones for touring, live and studio applications. The rugged metal carry case houses a range of the best AKG microphones made for capturing miking drums while simultaneously ensuring safe transportation wherever you go. The Drum Set Premium is hand-selected in Vienna, Austria and contains the following 8 world-class microphones:
1 x D12 VR Dynamic bass drum microphone
1 x C214 Matched pair condenser microphones for overheads
1 x C451 B condenser microphone for Hi Hat
4 x D40 Dynamic instrument microphones for snare and toms
AKG D12 VR
The D12 VR is a reference large-diaphragm dynamic microphone with cardioid polar pattern. Designed specifically for kick-drum recording applications, the microphone has a thin diaphragm to enhance the low frequency performance. Its warm sound is realized by the original C414 transformer, especially impressive at high signal levels. The D12 VR features three active filter presets to match its sound shape with the kick drum’s character. When activated, the output level is automatically reduced by 10 dB. The filter settings can be controlled using a switch on the microphone body. Without phantom power, the microphone operates in passive mode and delivers the instruments pure sound.
AKG PR4500 HT Set
The HT4500 is an analog reference wireless handheld transmitter that connects to a choice of four different microphones to cover a wide range of applications. The unique dipole-antenna design ensures reliable transmission even when one pole of the antenna is covered completely by the user's hand. The pilot tone continuously sends transmitter data, including mute switch position and remaining battery life to the receiver. The HT4500 offers an extended battery lifetime of 15 hours with two standard AA alkaline batteries. With integrated charging contacts, the optional BP4000 battery pack can be charged inside the transmitter. The readout of its exact battery life in hours is a valuable advantage in wireless applications.
